    That's absolutely a fair idea imo.

    But i was thinking that if you can sign him with another good player not named Durant, you still do it...and you go after another top free agent next summer...

    Let's say you sign Whiteside and Horford now...next summer i think we can keep the flexibility to go after a big name, one between Hayward, Lowry, Paul, Griffin, Gallinari...

    I would be ok with D.Mo as a starter if he didn't have those back problems, as today, i just think you cannot start the season with him as your starter, cause if he goes down you're ****ed...again.

    I wouldn't be opposed to them bringing him along slowly ,maybe off the bench as a 6th man. I can see DMO goin to work off the bench

    Me too, he can also play both the 4 and 5 which is always a plus.

    I would love to have DMo at the 4/5, however the injury issue for him & TJ makes it almost impossible to keep both/either next season. That's why I'd love to get Horford. My preference is to get Horford, roll the dice with DMo & get another facilitator.

    Personally, i think a front court with Whiteside, Capela, Horford, D.Mo, Beasley and Trez would be pretty good, still young...just not sure Horford will come here without Durant...

    Let's not forget that he never recovered his decent lateral movement after coming back. It's now poor; so his defense ain't nothing to be proud of anymore. "Positional defenders" who can't move laterally are worthless on that end.

    Here's to hoping he can get into better shape this offseason.

    Horford will bring leadership...something this team is sorely lacking!

    I DO NOT want Horford playing out of position at the 5.

    I think this is what it is at this point. I'm thinking if Howard goes to Charlotte maybe a sign and trade can be worked out and the Rockets can obtain Cody Zellar and some other pieces at a decent price. I think the Rockets are also ready to part with Ariza, Beverly, and Brewer. Maybe get Cody Zeller and Batuum and possibly give the max Al Horford. Beverly will probably still be retained.

    C-Zeller
    F-Horford
    F-Batuum
    G-Harden
    G-Beverly

    Well, we need a 4 and that's his original role and where he wants to play...

    Yeah, i mean, i love D.Mo, but we cannot bet on him as our starter pf as today. IF (and it's a big if imo) he stays here, he can come off the bench, at least until he's not at 100%.

    I doubt he'd stay no matter what happens given how he's been jerked around while with the Rockets, but I especially don't see him staying for a bench role. Someone will offer him 10 mil a year and a shot to start and I think he takes it.

    The best scenario would have Horford at the 5 (where he's played 85+% of his minutes in his NBA career) and DMo at the 4 with Capela and Harrell backing them up off the bench. We'll see what happens though.
