    It was just a tactic guys to make Silver feel sorry for us. No way in hell this was real. This has vibes of dragic and lin contract feud.

    Next up, offer another max contract to Wall but not really.

    I'm assuming they probably offered him an extension so that if he signed, it would be better for a trade. Not many teams wanna trade much for a rental.

    So keep Dipo for another season?

    Brilliant!

    Oladipo turned down his extension offer and Tucker supposedly has had one on the table? Seems obvious that both will be dealt, but teams probably lowballing the Rockets at the moment. Bucks interested in PJ? What do they have to realistically offer? Only hope is that contenders interested in PJ and Oladipo will create leverage, because at this point it seems PJ is getting his cardio workouts in and Oladipo isn't even in any kind of rhythm on the court. Impatiently waiting for trades to be made and for KPJ and even KJ Martin to join the team after the break (Wood returning as well)... at least give fans something to cheer for

    As most of you, hoping this is a tactic.
    I have not had a single fun moment of Oladipo in a Rocket Jersey. I would rather put those minutes on any youngster, even from the GLeague, better than this spiritless streaky combo guard

    Dipo had nothing to do with this tragedy masquerading as a game.

    At no point have I though he wanted to be here. And thank god. He's emotionally distant. And his play reflects it. While he is in fact good, he's a moral buster for an up and coming team. Good riddance.

    Victor Oladipo dodged a bullet. Tilman is the bullet.

    I heard through another post, lol, Silas was high on him. Didn’t think he and Wall could coexist. Similar games and both hurt to boot.

    I'm wondering about this myself. How much will this affect the team's ability to get a good trade done?

    If Stone is forced to let Oladipo go for nothing, that would be disappointing. But sadly, not very surprising.

    On a serious and a somber note;
    Harden trade resulted some picks and a 1 Dipo year rental. Please move Victor before the trade deadline.

    I just mean we are most likely gonna be top 7 in the draft this year and maybe into 2023. That excites me if we are able to hit on our picks.

    Now watching a young team get run over the next three years will definitely be tough.

    Reading this thread title over and over numbed my brain to the point I stopped remembering how it is actually spelled. Maybe the movie title has something to do with that too.

    And this is coming from someone who actually has two consecutive Ls and two consecutive Ts in his last name, and has to constantly spell it out for others.

    i should actually be embracing BULLETT
