    Rockets love injury prone players, so Dante should fit right in...

    I guess. He was "fine" for a very low standard for his 24 games last year.

    Biggest take away is.... Harden is gone. People still crying about acquiring previously injured players like they going to be here when we contend again. That won't be for a minute. Are we tanking or not? Don't get your panties in a wad. We were never going to get equal value but this was pretty good to build for the future. Not win it all as Exum as our star. He is solid when healthy.

    There is a reason why he hasn’t been waived. Stone maybe looking to re-sign him.

    There is no need to re-sign an injured player with a history of long term absences. Nobody wanted his expensive expiring contract at the trading deadline.

    Sign-and-trade possibility to match salary in a larger trade.

    I don't know what anyone sees in either Exum or Frank Nitilikina ? Both are trash

    Exum has great size for his position and is still only 25 years old, but he’s not going to ever live up to his potential. Hell, he never has, and he’s just as injured now as ever. Even still, as stupid as it probably is, I’d still take a flyer on him maybe if it was a minimum deal. It’s hard to ignore that potential, even when you know he’s almost certainly never going to reach it.

    It's funny how these poor shooters lit the Rockets up when they last played on the opposing team from my latest recollections. IDK

    Very similar to how I feel about Anthony Bennett and plenty of other busts. It's like why can't you just put it together man. Even 50% of it.

    I figured he was a hold until the off-season and let him walk to clear cap space.

    I put him in the misfit toys bin next to the trash can which is just outside the restroom.

    Same bin I have Michael Carter Williams and Frank Nitilikina
