    Is Houston in danger of losing Theis and Nwaba?

    Start him at the 5 and Wood at the 4.

    Upside of the investigation into Chicago & New Orleans... might be new landing spots for Wall if those trades are disallowed... IJS

    Best to not get your hopes up.

    If it happens GREAT - but having Wall on team for another season or 2 does not have to be abyssmal for Rockets fans.

    If Silas can just figure out how to use him without short shrifting development of our young guns.

    No... I get it. I would have more faith if Wall, Wood, EGo, etc. spent time working out together this summer.

    Hopefully, it happens after summer league.

    My hope is Wall shows he can be a real team player by accepting a bench role after the season starts ( I def expect him to start this season) and the Clips (or Celts or Spurs) believes he can help their playoff push.

    agreed, but it necessitates trading away at least one of the other vets like Gordon, House or Augustine. Otherwise the math doesn’t work.

    I would be okay with it if its anything within 10-15 minutes a game off the bench and no chucking and dribbling a ton! just running plays and shoot if its a good open shot within the flow offense

    LOL

    Yeah, those 2 things are not going to happen.

    Wall is still top 5 player, at least, on the team AND Silas kisses his ass.

    I’d keep Gordon over Wall at this point. HOU needs as many 3 pt shots as they can get

    Plus his contract would be easier to move at trade deadline

    turning down 4/84 will likely go down as a top 5 NBA L for this decade

    The fact that Schroeder is not betting on himself, after betting big (by turning down the 4 yr/$84M), is pretty stupid lol. His agent needs to be fired. Schroeder needs to take this loss and take that 1 year deal.

    a loss this big is pretty hard to accept

    Schroder probably wants to Latrell Sprewell his agent

    It's going to hurt like hell when he puts his signature on that new contract. He has only himself to blame.
