    How about this trade for the Pelicans?

    Rockets send out John Wall, receive George Hill (Sixers)
    Sixers send out Ben Simmons, George Hill receive John Wall (Rockets) + 4 or 5 FRPs from New Orleans
    Pelicans send out 4 or 5 of the FRPs they've accumulated from Lakers/Milwaukee or their own, receive Simmons (Sixers)

    That definitely meets Morey's asking price plus gets John Wall lol.

    disagree that it’s a very good deal, and I’ll really laugh hard when Randle’s payday comes up and the Knicks end up re-signing him to a big deal

    Why wouldn't the knicks re-sign Randle? His max is like 26 mil/year, he's worth that.

    Very weird to me that you have Kevin Porter Jr playing small forward when the Rockets were playing him at point guard last year.

    he shot 30% from the field in the playoffs on 19 shots a game…if you’re paying Randle big money, that’s an L unless he’s like your 3rd best player at best

    I have to explain this to everybody lol

    I make charts based on defensive positions. Is Wall going to start if he's not traded? Yes. Do we expect Green to start? Idk but probably. KPJ? I'd like him off the bench but it seems like has ego problems, I could see us starting him to keep things smooth

    KPJ is bigger than Green and Wall, so if we expect all 3 to start, I slot him at the 3 because he likely guards the opposing SF.

    Rockets are in a weird spot where the need KPJ & Green playing together but also give Wall a chance to show he is still tradable

    Suns got that taste of the finals and went all in on CP3. Crazy money but it makes sense from their perspective.
