    I thought Leslie Alexander said he would have no problem going over the luxury tax.

    I have a hard time believing Morey didn't think this was a real possibility. I still trust Morey.

    Morey has three days before I burst into his office and throw him out the window. :grin:

    Oh man, at this point I'm not even shocked or mad. I pretty much had a feeling in my gut that the Rockets luck was going to run out. Harden and Howard back to back? Yup, here comes the karmic gut punch.
    Still holding out hope that Morey pulls a miracle in the time allotted.

    Now Morey likely clears the Lin capspace and signs any decent player he can (Ariza, Deng, Lance, etc.) before the contract match period ends.

    Huh? Since the Harden trade, Morey signed Howard... he also got Patrick Beverley for nothing, drafted TJones....

    ALOT is going too happen tomorrow. 3 days is a lot of time with how quickly things can pick up on July 10th.

    Not worried at all. Have no reason too believe Morey doesn't have great plans for every possible scenario.

    I can't imagine Morey would be willing to let CP walk AND strike out on Bosh. I also dont think CP would screw Houston like that...knowing he may still have to play for us.


    So, I think Morey knows he'll find out about Bosh soon and will either match CP's offer or sign Bosh and CP's replacement.

    Underpaid to Overpaid, evens out...just think of it as 49 mill over 6 years...around 8 mill, which is what parsons is worth. Rockets should match.

    screw it. Deng and Ariza are both cheaper and play D.

    Opinions?

    Parsons deserves whatever the market can bare - I don't blame him one bit for taking an offer - you know Morey would trade him in a heartbeat if he thought it would help the team.

    Business is business....

    Letting Parsons Walk and trading Lin should give us 20 million in Cap space.
