    A trade that puts us under the hard cap enough to take on Green's contract.

    We currently have an empty roster spot. The issue is we have to reduce team salary to bring him back. Or late in the season when minimum salaries are prorated enough, we might be able to fit him in under the hardcap without any roster moves ... that last comment is a quote from one of bima’s tweets.

    The CBA does not allow teams/players to renegotiate contracts downwards

    Trade that sends out more money than Rockets take back.

    Or just trade Clemons to team with TPE.

    Would cost Rockets SRP at minimum.

    Even as part of a lifetime extension? Not that I want any more Harden. I'm just eager to get GG back already.

    Extensions and Renegotiations are defined CBA terms representing two different things. Renegotiating signed years downwards is not allowed.

    So Tillman doesn't wanna bring back Green to save chump change?

    This is ridiculous.

    Not to be that guy but if Rockets didn't guaranteed Boogie, could Gerald have returned sooner?

    As much as I love Gerald Green why would we sign him and play him over our rookies

    If Silas is rookes centric; Wall, Dipo, Tucker and Ego would be playing less minutes. I don't think adding Gerald is going to change that dynamic. If anything maybe reduce some of the other vet's minutes. Our 3pt shooting is doo doo, but the attempts are still there. If Rockets keep the attempts, get actual shooters.

    That and we just got blown out by the Bulls. Rockets is 4th worst in W-L in the league right now. For perspective, Wood's last team last year; the 2019-2020 Pistons was 5th worst. So if snapshot frozen, Christian actually came to a worse team. :(o_O Profound sadness.

    Guaranteeing Boogie has nothing to do with ability to sign Green, now.
    This thread is kinda irrelevant now to why Green had to be cut.

    We are no longer close to the Hard Cap, which is why we had to originally cut him.

    Post Harden Trade, we can now add salary, so we can cut someone (we have a full roster) at any time, guaranteed or not, and sign a replacement, with plenty of room below the Hard Cap.

    Gerald posted an instagram story during the blackout. He was sitting in the dark mad cussing out the power company. He was talking about all the taxes he pays and still sitting in the dark/cold.

    Metaphor for Tilman leaving him in the dark.
