    Meh.

    Pre-draft Rockets news is normally VERY active and then there isn't a payoff.

    I wonder why? Would even be able to afford all these picks at this point?

    You can always pay a first rounder without cap space or exceptions.

    So trade the 32nd for the first and a future 2nd rounder?

    Jones to OkC or Boston for 14th or 16th

    Fits the bill of Denver seeking two firsts for Lawson.

    Definitely something to consider if we're planning to operate OVER the cap (and maybe even under the cap).

    By operating over, we would need to use a portion of the MLE to sign the #32 pick, which decreases our potential offer to Llull. By trading into the 1st, no need to use any of the MLE.

    I'd really like to get Justin Anderson at #25 if he's there.
