    I don’t even understand how this trade really helps us. So we move up a few spots next year...at the risk that we drop a few spots this year if our pick is swapped for Miami’s.

    Terrible deal.

    Because it would have made his agent upset. Stone isn't about to upset agents because he's a weak GM who can't bluff.

    Got it. What effect if any, does this have on our 2021 draft position?

    At this point I’m just waiting to have a top three worst record and have the ping pong balls give our pick to OKC.

    It helps us by getting Dipo out of here and losing more games. All while not bringing back any salary for next season.

    So the Rockets can trade the Brooklyn pick (which will likely be #27) for the Heat's pick (which likely will be like #25)....... in other words the Rockets got nothing.

    Whatever

    Just pray for Butler, Bam or Harden, Durant, Irving to miss all of next season.

    He works for the Rockets so he has no choice to be a mouth piece. Fran Blinebury a few years back during the McGrady mess went afterTmac and pretty much broke protocols and the Rockets Canned him. He went to NBA.com and worked there.

    Miami going to be a top 5 team? Ninja please.

    I'd guess that it is just as possible that they pick at 15. This could be us moving up 10+ spots in the draft.

    Olynyk and Bradley make less money than Oladipo, and will be bought out to save even more.

    The Rockets got what they cherish most...savings.

    The Heat pick is currently 16. I am not sure their pick is likely to be 25 next year.
