    Quit and take a job at Fox Sports 1 for a year as an NBA analyst. They pay a lot and there's no pressure because no one will actually watch Fox Sports 1. And during that year I'll closely analyze all the league's owners to see who would be a good one to work for.

    *Insert Morey / Harden picture at Treasures*

    (Ty Lawson / Jones / Beverley) in the background.

    Sign / Trade for Jordan Hill, Mike Scott, PJ Hairston, One of the Morris Brothers, Sefolosha, Antic.

    All players with arrest history. We go down as the new BAD BOYS.

    What he said.

    Les is doing exactly what Daniel Synder did to my Washington Redskins: meddling in the short and longer term planning of a sports franchise. Thankfully, Snyder has back off for the past 2 years since hiring one of the best football minds in Scot Mccloughan.

    Retool around Harden, Capela, Beasley, possibly Dekker, Harrell, McDaniels.

    Let Dwight walk when he doesn't opt in
    Sign and trade Jones and Dmo for picks
    Trade Ariza, Brewer, Beverley, Goudelock away with those picks for cap space
    At that point you only have about ~$26M in committed salary
    Sign Batum, Horford, Seth Curry, Ryan Anderson, Llull, Jared Dudley with cap space. If the salaries don't work then sign Barnes instead of Batum.

    Fill out roster with min salary finds.
    New Roster:

    Llull/Curry
    Harden/McDaniels
    Batum/Dekker
    Anderson/Beasley/Harrell
    Horford/Capela

    They won't stop anyone, but that's not really D'antoni's way, is it?

    I would do what Sam Hinkey did and step down if I can't do my job.

    Buy a night club, invest in Qualcomm stocks, tell Harden to tell Khloe if Kendall is seeing anyone.

    If I were GM this summer:

    step 1: Fire D'Antoni
    step 2: trade Brewer and Beverley for expirings
    step 3: let all the RFAs walk if they get an offer above their QO (ie, sign them to it and then wait and see)
    step 4: swing for the fences in free agency

    If failing in free agency

    step 5: re-hire D'Antoni so that we can get the #1 pick.

    Why fans here don't think Morey want MDA???
    I see Les is trying to protect Morey. And don't trust what those Media saying.

    For the last freaking time.....Morey picked Dantoni and did it with the approval of Les. It was Morey's pick and Les did not have issue with it. Houston is the only sportstown which comes up with its own narratives to protect a subpar GM.

    This narrative that Mike ANthony was entirely Les' pick is baseless. Mauri is responsible for firing and hiring coaches. He fired Adelman, hired McFail, decided on JBB and now hired Pringles.

    Mauri fanboys are pointing fingers at Les for this hire but watch this same group turn around and laud Murray if Mike Anthony turns out to be a success

    So truth. But I see Les is protecting Morey too.which mean Morey and Harden's group are in somewhat serious trouble now.
