    Hello Rockets Fan,

    So I see ATL, LA CLIPPERS, and DEN are doing a 3 team trade. Seems Jamal Crawford might be traded to ATL. Word is he might be bought out or traded. I believe he would be a good fit on our bench. What do you guys think.

    Nope. He and Lou are of the same breed. Streaky scorers in bunch that can mostly just create for themselves. We need team oriented basketball to maximize Eric Gordon and Nene off the bench.

    All depending on money. Price should be right.

    Where are the cheaper Troy Danielses and Robert Covingtons now?

    Yes if he is bought out.
    Good scorer and shooter.

    Absolutely! Chances are he goes ring chasing. So his only options Houston, GS, and Cleveland.

    MDA has already said Harden or Paul will be on the court at all times. So a second unit of:
    Paul/Harden
    Gordon
    Jamal
    Tucker
    Nene

    Solid!

    Yes absolutely! Vet presence similar to what jason terry was who is hungry and can hit the 3's. We need that kind of presence. It's guys like him eddie jones, an older robert horry that can still hit a clutch 3 that are the deadliest come playoffs. We are going for the Chip not 2nd round. Save him for the playoffs with our depth and let him go bonkers. He'd also make a great back up pg for sparing minutes which he can do.

    no way...we don't need a 1 dimensional chucker who play zero defense and is inefficient

    he sucks in the playoffs and is unplayable against GS

    For the vet min.... hell yeah and twice on sunday.

    Still has juice. Veteran, can score at will {(though streaky).... with EG off the bench, we wouldnt miss a beat. I would get him in a heartbeat if he wanted to play here. No questions asked.

    Wouldn't want him here. Clips fans absolutely hate him with a deep passion for a reason.

    At this point in his career, he's is the definition of a chucker. Sometimes he gets hot, some times he makes crazy shots, most of the time he's bricking and taking infuriatingly horrible shot selection. Playing horrible defense, being black hole and a chucker on offense. No thanks.

    Would much rather sign someone like Thabo who's going to give effort on both sides of the court.
