    So brabra thinks a guard is next. Would that be a point guard?

    Even at the minimum....this is kind of a bummer, man.

    He can't play many minutes and will have delusions of grandeur(devisive attitude)...until 10-20 games in when he goes down for the year.

    Oh well...

    Welcome Booger, I mean Boogie.

    I thought two bigs and we can compete. Throw your Marc Gasol at us Boogie will have him for breakfast.

    Dare I say as good as Wood looked at the end of the season, our offense may be better when Boogie comes in. He is elite in involving teammates and causes havoc when teams focus on him too much. When we say Harden has never worked with talent like this at the five.....most of the league has not worked with talent like this.

    I would try to get Dedmon next. Cousins is an injury liability and PJ at this stage needs his minutes drastically reduced for a playoff run.

    Wood/PJ
    Cousins/Dedmon

    We could play those 4 in any combination and have floor spacing.

    It’s an interesting gamble, and it definitely signals a shift in defensive philosophy because Cousins can’t handle a switch-everything defense after two major injuries.

    Rockets have nothing to lose at this point. At least they are keeping Harden and...trying? Would have been much more excited if we had kept Roco and added Wood+Cousins. I'm no cap guy, so I don't know if it was possible to keep Roco and add Wood...

    But cousins is a roll of the dice which again...nothing to lose here

    . He was super skilled up when he played though, always enjoyed his game on the court, that was literally years ago...

    Boogie is a wild card. He is a big name but honestly would temper expectations as he's had back to back major leg surgeries at 6'10" and 270 lbs. Anything he can give us is a bonus in itself. Let's hope he does well here.

    Tucker is going to be starting at small forward if Wood and Cousins are both in the starting lineup once Cousins is healthy enough to play.

    However, the signing does help reduce Tucker’s overall minutes by adding more frontcourt depth.

    I don’t expect much of anything from Cousins

    Love this, more importantly, starting to really like Stone...

    He is kinda like when dad leaves the house, kids are like, is he finally gone....

    OK, let’s throw away those junky small ball toys and play with the big boy toys....

    “Jeff Schwartz, Cousins' agent, recently told SLAM that his client is nearing full recovery but likely won't be ready to start the season.”
