    Fingers crossed that it is Jones who gets the axe, but most likely it'll be Smith chasing money somewhere else.

    I don't like Scola's game anymore, at his age. But I do think he fits here nicely if there are enough minutes to go around.

    We need offense and he can still bring that. I cant see the team restricting him from taking midrange shots like our other post players.

    Dwight I imagine will continue to sit on night 2 of back-to-back games. Should be room for a Scola. But man.... I really, really, really want consistent defensive rebounding out of my 4 and it feels like that's just not a priority when I hear Daryl speak lately.

    Would love him as a backup but as starting we need someone like Milsap. if DMO plays the 4 and Someone like Brandon Wright plays the backup then we are good

    D-Mo already had a good post game but think how much he could learn from Scola.

    Isn't DMo the black Scola anyways?

    He'd most likely be the 3rd PF behind DMo and Smith....he'd be an upgrade from Jones.

    I think we could do this but sign Smith without the MLE to the $2.5 figure and bring over Llull with the MLE instead.

    Lawson/Llull/NJ
    Harden/Terry
    Ariza/Brewer
    DMo/Smith/Scola
    Howard/Capela

    This is an amazing squad with rediculous depth. Llull could also backup Harden so he would get 20+ minutes a night. Plenty of rest for everyone instead of running the starters into the ground. And of course protection for injuries.

    Just give Llull a headband, him running with Smith and Brewer:eek:

    Scola, hell yes to that!!! Winning a title without him would've been sweet, but with him is just awesome. One of the true hard workers this organisation has ever seen. I don't want to see the same PF rotation next year, Josh or TJ definitely needs to leave.

    To be honest , I would consider Scola over retaining Smith.

    He's not the defender Smith is but he's more consistent offensively and has skills this roster lacks in being able to finish the pick & roll in various ways and he can initiate the offense from the high post while not making a lot of boneheaded mistakes or having you thinking NO NO NO dont take that shot! He knows his limitations and plays within them.

    I like him if we keep Smith and DMO, but I dont want him to replace anyone other then Jones spot if we do trade Jones.

    I don't think the Rockets will offer him more than that, and if he wants to come then, it will be helpful for the team.

    Totally on board with this. Scola had a strong close to the season in Indy and can certainly be a reliable vet presence.

    The other angle is that he can help Llull adjust to the NBA since they have similar stories.

    I'm sure Dmo would be happy that Scola is coming back

    Scola might be Llull insurance, someone to give the guy a level of comfort as he acclimates to the league and to Tex-Mex. At the same time, he's still good for 12-15 quality minutes per game.

    Good-bye, Josh. No MLE and bad free throw shooting. A bad mixture in trying to bring him back.

    Sure would like to see Scola get ahold of Dwight and see what he could do with Dwight. We've seen his great positive influence on DMo's game.

    I can see Scola graduating to a coaching role when he's done playing and it sure would be cool to see him coaching here.

    I'd probably prefer West too but you wont sign him for the vet min. Signing Scola for that vet min doesn't hinder your ability to improve elsewhere.

    So, Prigioni is under contract. Manu, Scola and the recovering Delfino are all free agents. Nocioni is playing with Llull in Spain.

    How many of these guys can the Rockets have?
