Does the trade finally conclude any 'tanking' talk?

    Obviously, the whole 'tanking topic' has been thrown around quite abit over the last few months. Given that we now have the right to swap picks with the Knicks is that concept dead? Even given the recent poor run of losses, odds are the Rockets will not fall below the the Knicks who presently sit at a .339 winning %, therefor mathematically. the Knicks pick should be more valueable than most any Rockets pick - so we'll end up swapping anyway - so who cares where we finish - the picks going to the Knicks anyway....
    Personally, I'm against tanking regardless up potential upside - you play to win, etc... but I'm not looking for a debate on that topic, just wondering if the notion is now dead for this year... given the Knicks pick?

    The Knicks pick-swap is for 2011, so we'd have to be talking about tanking next year, which I haven't heard much of yet.

    The swap is for the 2011 draft.
