    I think perhaps you give Marion his MLE deal if you were able to swing a trade for Dragic. Marion is your primary backup SF and can backup PF as well. DMo backs up PF and SF. You still need a defensive backup center presence. Not sure who that would be. Maybe Okafor.

    In any case... not happening, so dreaming over.

    Matt Jackson tweeted the Drew dude. Mattj, is he legit? Or is that even your twitter handle?

    Mattj is a local sports radio personality for years and fairly connected. What did he tweet? Not sure if that is his twitter handle or not though. Stupid twitter.

    That has always been rumored, and there was some level of justification at the time. Lin had just come off of "Linsanity" and Dragic was a good player, but not a game changer.

    The NBA lives on the margin. Players may take small paycuts to play for a winner, but they don't take huge ones. Likewise for FOs/owners, they may sign lesser players vs better players based on non-basketball reasons, but not if one is SIGNIFICANTLY better than the other.

    The reason it hurts now is because of the Harden trade. No doubt Morey was thinking "tank" when he signed Lin, hoping that Lin could put up big stats and become a good trade asset. When we got Harden, the whole direction of the franchise changed.

    Anything new on the trade front? Any chance this gets delayed until September (when Gee and Hopson are eligible to be traded)?

    Marion would be nice, but he would have to be a primary 4.

    Only way for Marion (or anybody we sign) to get burn at the 3 (in our hypothetical roster) would be if were to completely cut Daniels out of the rotation, or if somebody were to be injured.

    Signing Marion would move Motiejunas into being our backup C.

    Dragic/Beverley
    Harden/Daniels
    Ariza/Harden
    Marion/Jones
    Howard/Motiejunas

    Would have to be our rotation unless we traded someone. That team would be stacked, you would still have Smith, Johnson, Adrian, Dorsey, Gee, Canaan glued to the bench.

    Wonder what plowman has to say, if anything?

    Saw him lurking. Maybe he's just checking in to see if anything's happened. "Not yet...not yet..."

    Sorry. I was asking Mattj if he thought Drew was legit.

    On Drew's feed:

    @MJ4Sports: If you were Phoenix and did not think Eric Bledsoe was a max player: Would you take Julius Randle and the Lakers 1st via Hou for him?

    @HoustonsOwnDrew: @MJ4Sports or TJones and NOs first

    @MJ4Sports: @HoustonsOwnDrew I guess it depends on opinion of Randle vs Jones. Rox would have lots of work to do to clear room for max offer.

    Welp folks. It's a wrap. Dragic must be packing once again.

    it is "the" Matt Jackson but, he did not tweet Drew directly. He just asked a question to his followers and Drew happened to answered him
