    A lot has happened today, at least been reported:

    * Reggie Jackson carted off, injured

    * George Hill injured

    * Tariq Black sticks with Rockets

    * JJ Barea back with the Mavs

    * Outlaw is outlawed and no longer with a team

    * Iggy becoming 6th man for Warriors

    * Thomas Robinson option not picked up

    What the hell is going on...

    Gal Mekel was waived too

    Also, can someone seriously explain the love fest surrounding TRob? Dude has no abilities that a coach/team can consistently use to translate to wins. Yet, I see a ton of Blazer fans defend him.

    Iggy being the 6th man is the most surprising item there. Barnes never really developed after a promising rookie year - I am not sure if playing with the starters will help him.

    Was hoping Kawhi could lock up Parsons on national television. Now Parsons will probably go for 20+, and the media will have a field day on the Rockets for not matching.

    Grey is indeed a serviceable backup C.

    You guys talk about Parsons going for 20 like he did that on a nightly basis here in Houston. 15pts at best...he is still the 3rd scoring option over there in Dallas.
