    There are none, he is a highly skilled player who makes everyone better, and plays within himself, all of those players are not as good as he, especially to this team.

    S&T Parsons to Indiana for Paul George?? There really are not a lot of options to improve or even stay status quo at SF position.

    A S&T (for Love & Brewer) makes the most sense for Houston fans. Morey needs to go all in for this solution.

    Lebron & Melo are pipe dreams. And signing Bosh while losing Parsons is not progressive.

    I think Tucker would be a nice fit if we lose CP. He's a superior defender and a comparable 3-point shooter. That's really what we need out of that position.

    Can't say much, but if he didn't play for us in the playoffs.

    Ariza. Should be able to get him for $10 mil. I don't know how many people watched Ariza play last year, but it was his best season as a pro. He shot over 40% from 3P. He was an absolute dead eye and he still is a great defender. I think he can be a reasonable Parsons replacement, but I'd still like to have Parsons because he has higher upside.

    PJ Tucker would make the most sense to me as well.

    We could have had him this year for the peanuts!!! A decision like that can't be made and risk having him go away. The offer sheet will be matched.

    Of those on the list Deng is the only one near as good of a player as Parsons. But I don't think he will be any cheaper than getting Chandler.

    It's not as if we can sign Bosh and then offer any of those players a competitive offer. If we sign Bosh all we will have to offer any of those guys is the MLE. The reason we were able to offer both Bosh and Parsons max type of money is because we have Parsons bird rights and we can exceed the salary cap to resign him after we sign Bosh.

    Once Chandler sign his offer sheet, the Rockets have 3 days to sign Bosh and still be able to have a good small forward. Best case scenario is that the Rockets are able to convince Miami to sign and trade Bosh to us before the Rockets have to make their decision on Parsons.

    We'll have decent trade exceptions from the Lin and Asik trades and a handful of salary neutral assets. SnT's are a very real possibility.

    We can sign Bosh and then sign Parsons via bird rights, right? Or is the only way to keep Bosh and Parsons is to do a S&T for Bosh?

    There are no affordable replacements for Parsons unless we don't add Bosh.

    If we do add bosh it's Parsons or a much lesser player.

    I'm not arguing that. I'm well aware we can still sign Bosh then match. My opinion though is that he isn't worth matching.

    What's the benefit of doing a S&T with Miami for Bosh? Why would Houston want to give up assets if Morey is going to trade Lin and assets to clear his cap number?

    So if we add Bosh what would you do, let Parsons walk and sign ????.

    We would only have peanuts to give out to the likes of Deng.

    Deng is very unlikely, I was just throwing out names of wings. A SnT for Tucker, Ariza or Marion I'd say is possible though.

    That is correct. If the Rockets sign Bosh they can resign Parsons using his bird rights.
