    Bynum? For the love of all that's almighty, and as a Lakers fan, the Rockets should not ever sign him.

    1) His knees
    2) His attitude
    3) His knees

    We need to wait until Kevin Love becomes available he is the perfect fit.

    Or we could sign Howard/Bynum/Smith and trade to the t-wolves for k love

    I can sum up giving Bynum a big contract in one short video.

    Rockets summer strategy:

    1. Meet with Howard, give Ipad. Finish a close second to LA in D12 sweepstakes.
    2. Wait for Pau Gasol amnesty, use cap space for bid.
    3. Retain max cap room for summer 2014.

    I haven't given up on our bigs. Rather than any of the free agents, I'd like to see DM angle for Oladipo in the draft.

    I really hope Morey doesn't give a max to Bynum. Rox already had experience with falling into a blackhole as a huge chunk of salary given out to a big man is eclipsed by injury. Bynum's knees scare me. And his motor and iq can be questionable.

    I think that is a very likely scenario, but where does Gasol fit in the lineup?

    What's the big deal with the '14 free agency list?

    I certainly hope nobody is entertaining ideas that we'd get LeBron or something.

    I think the ideal pfs for this team are too unlikely to acquire like Kevin love and lamarcus Aldridge. How do you guys feel about gallinari? I know he plays sf but I think he can play power forward for this team. He's still not an easy get but a little more realistic and I honestly feel he would make us that much better as long as we have a banger backing him up, like a developing t rob

    maybe Morey is just trolling the other GMs so that one stupid team ould be in cap hell signing on of the three mentioned, then Morey pillages them eventually for picks and assets

    Never mind. For some reason I thought Denver would be in luxury tax soon but theyre in ok shape. Don't see them parting with danillo, especially to us. Ahh well, let's hope for gasol amnesty then

    You get Bynum, your whole offense goes down the drain. Plus as awesome as he is as posting up double and triple teams, he's the slowest player on the court who also sets the offensive tempo.

    Yesterday's game, I saw Lin attack Bogut and dish to Asik. Asik missed the layup. GSW rebounded and ran a fast break to their end and missed their layup. Guess who got the offensive board - Asik. The guy actually sprinted to the other end after his miss and was right under the basket to rebound.

    Bynum would've stayed at the other end watching. The guy can't run, he's the trailer in every possession, and there's nothing you can do about it.

    Harden hasn't been right ever since he hurt his knee.

    Seriously man, no sarcasm at all I would take Asik at 8 mil. who'll play every night and give you a defensive/pick setting stud over Bynum who'll be injured.
