    why is everyone so excited about Wood? I can't say I have ever seen him play before, so I don't know anything about him. But from watching highlights on Youtube, he reminds me of Clint Capela with his pick and roll. And he seems to be able to shoot from 3. What else does he bring to the table?

    Then that's a terrible move. All these trades are bad then. We can improve EG's value.

    As to Wood, fantastic job by the Rockets reeling this kid in.
    Now they'll use the TPE in a sweet deal.

    Hope it’s tucker traded, although tucker is probably the closest friend to Harden on the team.

    Considering how much Bertans and Grant got, I still think Wood at $14M is a steal. I have no clue where the Rockets' cap sits right now, though.

    huh?

    can roll like Clint, and shoot the three.

    what else exactly are you looking for?

    A Clint Capela that can shoot 3s doesn't get you absolutely erect? Come on now.

    oh for sure this is a huge gambit. But I rather see them risk it all than to have done nothing like in the summer of 2018 when we clearly needed a replacement for Luc and Ariza.

    We need more moves, not minimum moves.

    Capela isn’t a good comparison. They really aren’t very much alike. Wood is much more skilled, but not as good defensively. Wood is still a work in progress. He has all the tools to be an all-star, but he’s nowhere close to being a finished product yet. People need to be patient, he still has some work to do, but could be a really nice fit here.

    Thank you. It's like some fans can't wait for something bad to happen so they can say lol I told you so. That's what this bbs has become, everyone wants to rub it in each other faces when they feel they are right.

    And to all you so called fans with the tilman is cheap jokes, keep them coming because those will always be funny :)

    You can thank Les for that. Dude made Morey spend money when he didn’t want to.


    Also, everyone in 2016 got overpaid. Not a great signing to complain about.
