    This was from yesterday, implying OKC would match anything, but either way I think it helps the Rockets slightly that OKC aren't getting Kanter at a discount.

    <blockquoteclass="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">With the July moratorium ending tomorrow, feeling is either Kantersigns with OKC, or signs an offer sheet elsewhere that OKC then matches.</p>&mdash; Royce Young (@royceyoung) <a href="https://twitter.com/royceyoung/status/618897273913675776">July 8, 2015</a></blockquote> <script asyncsrc="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">OKC will likely match, + then look to deal Novak/Augustin/PJII for $0. But POR is forcing their hand.

    Oooh hope it happens. Anything to weaken a contender.

    So will they trade Durant or Westbrook to save money this time?

    Rockets should take calls for Augustin

    Augustin would be the perfect backup guard for this team. Could even start alongside James. He's got game and could run the second unit.

    I would love to have DJ Augustin on this team backing up Bev.

    Would love to grab DJ Augustin for this team. Excellent shooting, good passing, fantastic leadership skills. Buddies with KD for 2016 :)

    Why would anyone "love" DJ Augustin unless you are a longhorn fan?

    He's short and he isn't a good shooter.

    If Kanter wasn't in OKC then he would take no max offer. Portland only does it to make OKC pay.

    Excellent shooting?

    He's had some really good years and some mediocre years. More of a Beverley type offensive player than "excellent."

    Me too. The only reason to not get Augustin is if OKC refuses to deal him here because we're a Western Conference rival. With Papa's non-guaranteed deal at our disposal and Augustin due only 3 mil next season before coming off the books(i.e. it doesn't impact the Durant pipe dream), Morey has no excuse to not make the call to Presti.

    If a player like Kostas is given to OKC, and since his salary is Non Guaranteed? Does OKC have to pay it?

    If that is the case, perhaps we could nab Augustin and Morrow?

    They are going to give Kanter the max and pay luxury tax, but would not give Harden the max right after they made it to the finals....got it!

    Career 37% 3 PT shooter and shot 40% from the three on 332 attempts in 2013-2014 season. That's better than anyone else on our team.

    I'm not big on Augustin in general, but at $3M - go for it.
