    You dont really need much help, if you have Harden, Durant, Howard, DMo, and Lawson. Just one or two solid sixthmen and scrubs to sprinkle in there throughout the game.

    Any one of those players can go off for 30 any night if healthy sans Dmo.

    Hopefully Dmo can develop into one though.

    This is a war between PHX management and Camp Dragic. You have to think at this point that Phoenix is really considering keeping him and calling his bluff.

    Ahhh the Dynex is finally factoring in, in a legitimate way.

    Obviously this "5th year isn't important" thing isn't going to cause NY, LA or MIA to suddenly decide to offer their minimal attractive assets. Is it supposed to incentivize the Suns to take a sub-par deal?

    Right!! I never figured Dragic to be such a vindictive guy. Holding a grudge against us, willing to part so poorly with Phoenix.

    If Knight is really available, I would love to get him. He and Harden would be out backcourt for the next decade or so.

    What would you guys think of a 3 team trade between the Rockets, Bucks and Nuggets?

    Bucks Out: Knight (3.6M)
    In: Lawson (11.6M), Terry (5.9M)

    Nuggets Out: Lawson (11.6M), McGee (11.3M)
    In: Jones (1.6M), Pap (4.8M), NOP pick

    Rockets Out: Jones (1.6M), Pap (4.8M) or Shved (3.3M), Terry (5.9M), NOP pick
    In: Knight (3.6M), McGee (11.3M)

    Bucks do it because they get a point guard with contract security. Terry is used to balance out salaries but he also has ties with Kidd so I could see that working out.

    Nuggets probably don't do it unless McGee is taken out of their hands, but they also get young players in Pap (or Shved as an expiring) and Jones, plus the NOP pick. Big thing here is that McGee is taken off their hands, something they have been reported to be looking for. Getting Pap and Jones might allow them to trade Wilson/Faried.

    With this move, the Rockets solve two problems: a starting caliber point guard that can play well with Harden and be a secondary playmaker and also find a solution at back-up center in McGee. McGee is a headache but he is a shot-blocker, therefore exponentially better than Dorsey. McGee's contract also ends in 2016. Maybe we could also snag Dudley from the Bucks if we trade Shved and Pap..

    Rotation could be:
    Knight / Bev
    Harden / Brewer
    Ariza / Dudley
    DMo / Smith
    Howard / McGee

    In my opinion, that's a championship roster.

    So it isn't about the money because Dragic wants the ball in his hands yet he wants to go to teams with ball-dominant players already established (Miami-Wade, Lakers-Kobe, Knicks-Carmelo)?

    I'm confused.

    I think it does the opposite actually. If the 5th year isn't important to him there is no reason for LA or NY to trade for him. Why give up assets when you aren't making the playoffs anyways and can just sign him in free agency for four years? If anything this helps the Rockets get a trade for him, but implies he is almost certainly a rental if he does end up in Houston

    Disagree. He is saying it doesn't matter if you keep me because I do not care about the money... I will leave regardless. When in reality it is probably about the money mixed with the PG spot.
