    Alperen Şengün is back, set to face the team that traded him away. Kevin Porter Jr. still seems a ways away from a return. ŞenHub, trade deadline (it's February!) and more -- We're talking Houston Rockets at 11:00am CT.

    We're Talking Rockets!

Is the relationship with Ryno salvageable if we attain Melo via buyout?

    I think he's a professional and would swallow his pride. I'm sure he knows Melo and Paul are great friends, he's been in the NBA a while and moved around. It's not a slight to Anderson if you consider that we can get a hall of famer for him. That's somewhat of a compliment.

    "You're still here because we thought you were equal value for Melo and they did not. I hope you're not offended that we valued you so highly."

    Definitely. We're paying the man 20 million a year.

    You mean like Ryan Anderson who was slow and unathletic and had 0 big man skills too?

    I'm just teasing. But at the same time, there's a reason Ryan Anderson makes $20m, and it's not because he just did what he was told. It's because he worked hard to become one of the best shooters on the planet, despite a couple of decades of being told he has to play like a traditional 6'10 guy.

    Raise your hand if ou give a **** what Anderson thinks?

    Did Ryan even raise HIS OWN hand?

    Maybe charlotte will take him to reunite him with Dwight and send a couple players to ny for us.

    1. Ryan is a pro.

    2. Ryan is not a star. Rockets are not ruining his legacy by sending him to purgatory.

    3. Ryan is getting paid a generous 60m over the next 3 years. I'm sure he won't lose much sleep over it.

    I don't care for rynos' feelings. We paid the man much more than he's worth.

    Force Ryan Anderson to retire temporarily, so he can go honeymoon and marry for this upcoming season.

    Ryan would be probably the #7 or #8 guy off the bench. I think he accepts his role and keeps cashing them nasty big checks. On a positive side, that 2nd team would be filthy--James/CP3 with Gordon, Tuck or Luc, Ryan and Nene--offense & defense gone wild!

    The Knicks are not buying out Melo. I think that's pretty clear at this point.
