    Wow 3 players, 2 who have a great chance of making this years team for only 1 future 2nd and Mr. Alexander's money.

    We have a great owner and who cares about that future 2nd he will just buy another pick if need be that year!

    I'm impressed with Morey once again. We turn 0 picks in a draft into THREE.

    And all of them are low risk. Who knows what'll happen next?

    well i dont think its hard to buy 3 second rounders, the hard part is choosing the 3, but i think he did a great job, seems like Morey loves taking low risk players and building them up.

    I don't mean to be rude, but...

    That's like saying I had 0 onions before I went to the supermarket.

    This really didn't deserve its own thread.

    to think we drafted steve novak with the 32nd overall pick 2 years ago, and we get a better version of him with the 43rd pick.

    About 6 or 7 million of Les Alexanders bucks and a future 2nd round pick for Detroit.

    For all the Yao haters who say that the money the cash cow Yao Ming brings to the Rockets don't help the team:

    Yao's boon to Les Alexander's businesses and his pockets are a big reason why we got 3 draft picks tonight, from 0.

    chase is not the accomplished college player that Novak was.

    Novak was a taller JJ Redick in college.

    chase is . . . athletic.
