    Do we really want to be locked up with Ryan Anderson and Al Horford?

    Holy crap we are in trouble. We need a miracle. We need one of these young guys to develop into a stud, and FAST.

    Can someone say cheap.
    If the home team is offering 70million, why not offer more to steal him away?

    I bet the Morey got Les really drunk to even agree to 70 million.

    We're going to lose Harden if we don't! I'm not ready to blow it up!

    Didn't some of the fans crying right now actually said "the subtraction of Dwight will improve this team instantly"?

    nothing screams "I want a trade" faster than having two scrubs making a shtload more money than you en route to another trainwreck of a season. Harden will be gone after next year.

    Why don't we go after Dwyane Wade?

    I think he is far better than these scrubs.

    That's just not smart at all. He's already being overpaid as it is. Oh ok let's even overpay a ton more. Hou just isn't a attractive destination right now. People just need to accept that

    I really hope the 76ers will offer a max contract to DMO just to make a statement :

    "FORK YOU MOREY FOR SENDING SAM HINKIE TO US AND RUINED OUR FRANCHISE".

    Wade is looking for a team to drive up his price.
    Miami for life

    How in the hell is that cheap. So I guess Atlanta is cheap to because they offered the same thing.

    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Bazemore will have a player option on the fourth season of his deal to return to Atlanta, sources tell The Vertical.</p>&mdash; Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) <a href="https://twitter.com/ShamsCharania/status/749071609915289601">July 2, 2016</a></blockquote>
    <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

    ...and we have our answer why he turned us down. Morey doesn't like player options.

    It's looking more and more that way. But I wouldn't rule out the possibility of a trade or that they could make some shrewd signings this season, improve and acquire another star player before the trade deadline or next summer.

    I think Morey will do everything in his power to keep Harden in Houston. At this point, though, I just don't know that anything he can do will be enough. He doesn't have the assets he's had in the past when he's won big deals, and the team doesn't have momentum to attract free agents like they did three years ago with Dwight.

    It didn't even come down to $ so ΓΌ shouldn't even be complaining. He chose what he felt is a better situation over playing with this team. Can't really blame him

    Lol, how does it feel to be a Rockets fan folks, James Harden is observing what others are doing and he is possibly sure to follow after the other free agents?

    Did you not see all the signs at the draft? "Trust the Process", "Hinkie died for our sins", and several fans chanting HINKIE. The got Simmons so im sure they are not holding a grudge lol
