    The lakers are one key injury away from taking a huge step back

    If Stone is Morey smart, there has to be another move to dump salary. Likely EGo.

    Gordon for Rose and Wood. I’d do that.

    Didn’t know it was a trade I assumed we just signed him outright. Yeah if you are giving away tucker or EG on top of Covington it’s a bad move. Basically have 4 players and a bunch of gleaguers

    Would have preferred Montrezl Harrell instead, and cheaper.

    he only went that cheap to the Lakers because LeBron/Klutch will take care of him financially outside of basketball. There’s no way that ain’t happening.

    The Rockets get a $12.8 million trade exception by trading Ariza to Detroit. They do not have to trade any other players to give Wood this contract.

    I think they acquired the FRPs to help unload EG. It will be interesting to see what they can bring back in the trade though. I think Gordon is going to have a bounce back year but his time could be up.

    Damn, I know this was just highlights, but Wood showed inside/outside shooting game, really good ball fakes, finished strong, can put the ball on the floor and blocked shots (incl one of the best centers in the game). Hell, his energy alone will be a PLUS for our line-up. Excited to see this young man play and what Silas can do with him. NICE JOB STONE!!!

    Rather see Russ trade first.

    Harden goes last, for the most return possible.
