    Try and actually get deep into the playoffs instead of being bounced in the first again.

    Also don't resign Parsons unless it doesn't go against the cap so we can all rejoice in the SUMMER OF LOVE.

    Plan Z -

    -Trade for Rondo.
    -Put everything into getting Dragic.... entice him with playoff basketball and the mistake we made for marketing reasons.
    -PG is needed. Lin is a negative and Beverly is good for 30 mpg.
    -DO NOT, no matter what, DO NOT wave the white flag and give Parsons $6m+ to stay on this team. include him in a trade
    -Prioritize wing defenders with length to start next to Harden. No big names necessary.
    -Bring in big bodies with mid range jumpers to play the 4. Ryan Anderson would be ideal and not cost us an arm and leg with all the injuries he had. RYAN ANDERSON. Look into moray. get your iPads out.

    If Lebron returns to Miami, Bosh does but Cleveland's offer for Love dissapears, so we'd have the best offer for Love.

    If Lebron goes to Cleveland, Cleveland trades for Love, but we'd have the best offer/situation for Bosh

    Morey's big 3 project has wasted the Rockets one year. If he traded Asik last year,signed Millsap, we had chance to win champion.
    I don't hope Morey will waste one more year to continue his great big 3 plan.
    Sign Jordan Hill 20mm/4years;
    sign Bazzmore 7mm/3year

    Get a better couch.
    Train young players better
    Improve team chemistry.
    Practice practice
    Improve rotation time mgmt.

    Retract position badly on certain players, and swallow the horror of bringing back a 54 win team.

    I'll get a heart attack if some how we can get Dragic back!!! Can we even get him back? He's not a FA so only option is trade right?

    What they should have done a year ago - start Lin, make Harden accountable for defense and try to get a backup centre. Replace Cisco with a solid wing defender.

    I was always on the 'Let's groom our own stars' bandwagon.

    Cheaper and gives us more time figuring out how to keep them

    The Jeremy Lin bandwagon has sailed.

    I might be wrong, but didn't Millsap agree to his contract several days before Dwight? I think our only realistic option left was Josh Smith or Ryan Anderson and Morey didn't believe they could put us over the top (and I tend to agree with him, though I wanted Smith back then).

    Morey doesn't trade away assets when he gets less in return. This offseason moving Asik means he can offer a near max to 3 star players - plus he gets a valuable pick.

    He can't really waste another year chasing the big 3. After this offseason we won't have max season for the next 3 years simply because of Harden, Howard and Parsons. So if he strikes out this year he will try to do whatever he can to use our capspace to sign or trade for valuable players and extend Parsons - later he might try to trade for a star.

    Plan Z? So no Melo, LeBron, Bosh, Love or Rondo? I'd be ok with Deng and Stephenson or someone like Jordan Hill - 2 of those 3 would be nice. If we could somehow get Millsap I'd be ecstatic.
