    I just checked Rockets official site(http://www.nba.com/rockets/roster/2012). There are 24 players in our current roster. There are 13 Forwards and 8 Guards.

    I understand Earl Boykins and Jerome Jordan are not in our future plan. But it is still tooooo long for a NBA team. Can anyone update it?


    Furkan Aldemir F 6-9 230 08/09/1991 Galatasaray/Turkey R

    Jerome Jordan was cut.

    Then he played for the Knicks summer league team.

    And sucked.

    Josh Harrelson was also waived - according to ESPN's offseason movement chart.

    I realize that roster might have some players that may amount to something in the future but that list overall looks horrendous. Yikes.

    All I know is Morey is working hard this offseason. We are lucky to have such an active GM.

    I'm confident in my guessing. ;)

    I'm confident Douglas, Lin, and Asik are here to stay, for at least one year.

    Going off tweets from Feigen, I'm confident those guys who are 'not in the plans' are not in the plans, ha.

    I'm confident that Jones through White, those are your trade assets, either for Dwight or someone else, or those are guys who you rebuild with and are here to stay.(Except for Martin--he won't be back.)

    I'm Furkan confident that Aldemir won't be coming over soon and will be staying overseas.

    The rest of those guys, you're right, guessing on my part. I'm not sure of their status or the plans for those guys.

    Stinks about Harrellson - he was worth a hard look as a 3rd center. Makes nothing, so I don't get dropping him.

    The only ones that are guaranteed of staying are Asik and Lin IMO.

    The rest including the guy's on the non-guaranteed contracts are candidates for a Dwight Howard traded.

    The non-guaranteed's and expiring's could allow us to take on another contract, further helping us to retain more assets in a Howard trade.

    Machado is awful, he forgot about him because he is forgettable. Why have Machado when we already have 3 guaranteed deal PGs on the roster? Lin, Douggie Fresh, and Livingston?

    Everyone needs to be done with the Machado love...its senseless.
