    When was the last time the Rockets did what you expected them to do in the draft?

    Mine: Yao Ming, so it's been a while. Be prepared to be surprised!

    the rockets haven't made any significant draft day moves since getting rid of lowry for a pick and trading away Gay for Battier. I expect today to be much of the same.

    Interesting, has this always been the case? I though it was always understood, but never explicitly part of the rules

    I think after the deadline, you have to draft for the team you're trading the pick to. That's probably why the pick always officially is listed as the trading team.

    Im a little confused as to what to make of the flurry of rumor? NOt that it would shocking if MOrey really were pushing hard for LMA or Love, but Stein's tweet referred to both? Now TJ and picks are available? Clearing room for what exactly. Could stars sign here on 1 year deals waiting for the new cap and giving it an all in mentality knowing next year they would probably go their own ways?

    Strange:
