    Why would you get rid of very solid (starter quality) depth? He is by far your most versitale big on the team.

    Especially with Anderson's health record.

    I do know that DMO has been reported to have as many offers sheets as you and me:

    0

    Again, pretending like he has secret declined offer sheets is...speculation. Noting that he

    1. has no reported offer sheets
    2. was offered only the minimum by the rockets
    3. has back issues that have had serious impact on his NBA future, causing one team to reject him outright

    are all facts.

    Because if you don't you have to rely on Harrell to be your backup PF. I'm high on the kid's future, but he's very inconsistent right now.

    DMo is better than all 3 of them.

    Well let's certainly hope that's the case given how much money we threw at him. There's a chance he thrives in D'Antoni's system offensively, so let's just hope that happens.

    If D-Mo was even remotely close to Anderson, he would be fielding offers up the wazoo instead of us sitting around waiting to hear if he even gets a single offer, which like Bima says, is great for the Rockets.

    I think so too,but:
    -Anderson is paid a lot of money to be a "supersub"
    -Nene is an old solid vet ~> perfect to pair with Capela as he grows. (I understand the signing)
    -Capela is on rookie scale and his skill seem to fit the team's needs going forward.

    If not cheap there is no room for DMo.

    DMo & Anderson would be like lighting in a bottle.

    I would like to see DMo get both the 4/5 spots ~> starters minutes. For this to happen the Anderson / DMo combo needs a rebounding 3. (Which is not on the roster ~> a quicker Harrell or a banging Dekker. Maybe the answers are here and time will tell.)

    Only thing Anderson is better at is shooting 3s....overall DMo is better.

    That's possibly true, but let's hope that Anderson does really well in D'Antoni's system and his offense makes up for his lack of defense.

    LOL if you say so... If that was true, D-Mo would have signed with a team already for mad money.

    If arguing DMo vs. Anderson, then the question should be "who can rehab from injuries quicker?", not "who is the better player?".

    Say me at what facet of the game is Anderson better at than DMo other than 3pt and ft's? He played on a scrub team had best season in his career, still only had 6rebs in 30mins, shot only 6.0-14.1 .427 overall. Im not even talking about actual defence or passing which DMo is twice as good or even better than that.

    You are in huge dissapoint if you think Anderson is gonna get 15 shots a game in rockets.

    If he cant drain his 3pt = rides the bench for 20mil/season.

    If DMo were anything like you guys think he is the offers would be flying all over the place. Instead.......

    Looks like teams may not want to pay for Dmo's good but short stretch about 18 months ago.
