    honestly, I want Jarret Allen or Myles Turner...hometown boys? ...if not, hope we can get a first round draft pick and develop another Capela

    His perimeter defense looks good. And he is a disruptor, recently led NBA in blocks.

    Not a great rim runner seems to be his biggest concern. Much better half court player.

    And his inconsistent rebounding is not a problem in Rockets system.

    And some roadblocks to trading EGo. Yikes.

    I hope Rockets re-sign Bruno next season.

    His length and 3P shooting should be great fits for this system.

    I can’t find the posts or threads, but I ate enough crow after the first two games. Which one of you (there was more than one)
    A-holes :) said that trading EG + Roco + PJ for Anthony Davis would be a bad deal for us?

    SPEAK!

    I think we need to see who will be the coach 1st. If u select some players that MDA will not use, it is wasting money. I prefer to select those OKC teammates in harden era. The 1st thing is to sign Jeff Green 1st. Then we can get back gerald green. I hope we can have a good center that MDA will use

    Would Miami bite on EG for either Iggy or Olynyk and the #20 pick?

    I'd take a good hard look at Josh Green at that pick too. Defensive stud, with a developing offensive game. Really high on the guy.

    This is false. The Rockets actually spent every last penny of their Taxpayer MLE this season (minus a small amount that burnt off via proration), collectively, on Danuel House, Chris Clemons and David Nwaba.

    The entire roster minus Tyson Chandler are MDA guys.

    You are foolish to believe that a team specifically constructed for MDA and Moreyball, especially the core, is going to have a new HC next season.

    Thinking MDA will not be here next sense makes no sense financially.

    Not a bad deal just extremely unlikely.

    Yeah never said it was likely but some were saying they wouldn’t do it period (would be a bad deal for us). Mind you they were on a Game 1 high, living in the moment, where we looked like we were going to sweep OKC and Lakers looked like they were gonna get upset by the Blazers. Ahhh good times. Gotta get the win tonight!

    They ducked under when they traded Capela, Nene and Gerald Green for Covington and Bruno.

    We all know Fertitta doesn't want to pay the tax (but might be forced to pay some over the next 2-3 years). I was merely responding to a statement about the team's use of the MLE.
