    We need to be mindful as a front office to not trade away our 2022 and 2023 draft picks. Because that is our tank window. 1 one year window type trade would definitely be to trade Eric Gordon for a star on expiring contract. that way it’s a win win situation rebuilding wise and winning wise.

    If demar Derozan opts in Cp3 style and requests a trade to Houston. Eric Gordon and House straight up for Derozan makes sense as a deal for both parties. Spurs can raise EGs value and trade him again in a year or 2. House gets to develop and become the player he’s supposed to be. Rockets get cap clearing money in a rebuild year for 2022.
    And we have a formidable roster for 1 season.

    russ/rivers
    Harden/green/McLemore
    Derozan/Nwaba
    Covington/Jeff Green
    PJ/Noel

    you got a 1 year title run team just need to bring back maybe a Luc/ and maybe give demare another chance with a real coach. And we got ourselves a 1 year title chase team

    my main point is whatever move you make. And DEROZAN TRADE IS JUST AN EXAMPLE. YOU TRADE FOR AN EXPIRING CONTRACT. AND DO NOT MOVE 2022 and 2023 picks. A TOP 8 pick in 2022 Can be a STAR

    True. But u gotta find low value. Like I feel like the only star that isn’t worth draft picks right now is Blake Griffin maybe Kevin love but he has a decent market now

    pretty sure our 2023 pick can’t even be traded because of the Stepien Rule

    DEROZAN?!??!?! DEROZAN?!?!?!?! Let me get this straight. We just watched our Rockets get pummeled because we had a guy on our roster who couldn't hit the 3; allowing the Lakers to leave him open and double Harden all game. And you want to add a second guy who can't shoot threes? You want Harden triple teamed?!?!?!

    In a perfect world rockets could pull this off. It would take 1st and 2nd more likely. Spurs can get more for him elsewhere.

    If this is a farewell tour, they are going to present Harden and Westbrook with motorcycles in empty visiting arenas for the farewell tour.

    Derozan still isn't the player.

    We need front court depth and height badly.

    More Offense in the front court as well.

    Derozan is a guard that plays the SF that's all.

    I am tired of amassing childhood friends of James Edward Harden.

    And also stay away from WB's friend Love for now.

    The Spurs have White, Dejountey, Lonnie, enough young players, they do no need Eric Gordon.

    You are not getting Derozan for EG! Spurs would laugh out loud for that offer.

    Sooooooo we just want players that can't shoot? How bad do we want to tank? Derozan is a terrible idea!

    It's going to be a painful next 10 years either way.

    Just expect nothing and hopefully you won't be disappointed.

    pretty sure the only farewell tour in the coming future are long-time rox fans leaving.
