    Conley also knows Lawson played at Houston first before Indiana. Conley ain't stupid.

    It's some Rockets fans are stupid and delusional.

    Admit it, we whiffed out big time this season: ain't no sane player wants to come here.

    Abandon your silly little delusions. This dumpster fire of a season will keep on giving for a while.

    Conley, who missed 26 games because of injury, is still the best point guard on the open market. With seven teams needing a point guard, Conley, who will be 29 in October, will get his $25 million per year, either from Memphis or another team.

    Even with a rising cap, it will be hard to justify paying Conley in years 3-5 of the deal, when he will average $30 million per season.


    Ended the previous 2 seasons hurt. Sound familiar? Good player, I'll pass.

    For real man.

    We already know that the Rockets won't sign a single free agent, not a minimum scrub who is dying for an NBA job and certainly not any high end free agents, but I'm also hearing whispers that most guys still under contract are mulling retirement rather than continue to play with James Harden.

    Did the entire point of my response go over your head? Seems like it

    Why you keep repeting that's any FA come to Houston because we don't have a coach?

    We're in may. The FA starts in july. Calm down.

    I believe we'll have a new coach in this month.

    Does Conley know Harden likes to distance himself from the team? Isn't really a team player but only associates during practices and games? Likes to travel by himself? Unless Harden has family medical emergencies warranting such behavior, he is the direct cause to why this team is out of rhythm.

    No, did the entire point of my post go over your head?

    Let me try this again: the Rockets do NOT need and CANNOT have a POINT GUARD who starts.

    Does Conley want to start or come off the bench?

    Is Conley stupid?

    Or are some Houston fans still delusional after this dumpster fire of a season?

    Mine is not quite Phil Jackson level, but still miles ahead of Morey level of understanding of chemistry.

    Agreed. I'm hearing that Les is going to sell the team to some Las Vegas guy and it'll be moved there immediately. This season, one of the worst seasons ever by a basketball team apparently has really taken a toll on Les and he want's no more to do with owning a team.

    The players requested Morey to have everyone brought back this year against Moreys judgement not to:rolleyes:

    but keep propping your YMCA grade basketball IQ up over people getting paid to make these decisions:p

    Last minute game plans and overview cannot be done if he does that often. No wonder this team layed one this season.

    The firing of Joerger doesn't exactly strengthen the Grizzlies case in keeping Mike Conley. Hearing he had a foot out the door before this

    Only the knicks, nets and rockets, kings and grizzlies need a point guard. And i think grizz and rockets are at the top of his list. Conley can very well be our future point guard

    It is amazing how more available Conley is now. Couple of months ago I thought he was a total lock to stay in Memphis with Gasol. Now he is totally in play for any contenders that have max cap room.

    Not interested in Conley, or any PG upgrade for that matter. Harden as a PG is totally fine for our offense (ranked in top 10, can't be emphasized enough). We need a SG (or just a 2nd starting SF) that can be a 3&D player and be an excellent spot up shooter.

    Courtney Lee for example would be a great signing.
