    I wonder how many more articles the media can squeeze out of a single sentence of a separate article.

    Miami would definitely want him but you can forget it if the expectation is Herro or Robinson.
    Most I could see them offering is Nunn and expiring (and I would think they’d wanna wait and use the Myers expiring rather than Olynek or Iggy).

    Oladipo is a solid player... but if I was him I’d be more focused on trying to prove I can stay healthy, play well, and try to cash in on free agency during the offseason. The Rockets seem like the perfect place to do that. He will only be here for a couple months. He’s likely getting flipped for another young player/ pick. Just play ball man and in the offseason you can literally pick where you want to go

    OK, until we actually hear someone other than Kevin O'Connor talk about this, can we put a moratorium on all "Oladipo wants to go to Miami" threads? At this point, the same source and info just keeps getting regurgitated, and it'd be nice if we could hold off on new threads until something new comes out.

    Imaging calling yourself "The Source" and you are reporting information from others. Are they really, the source? lol

    The source doesn’t seem to get that bagging on the rockets was so 2 days ago. Now we’re chippy underdogs.

    Well if they are choosing between Dipo and Beal that's not a very difficult decision.

    The decision would have to be Oladipo. Beal hasn’t been made available and they have no draft picks to trade if he was.

    "Oladipo wants Miami."
    "Oladipo prefers not to wear a mask inside businesses. Is Miami, FL an option?"
    "Oladipo likes to drink coffee. Butler makes coffee. Miami bound?"
    "Oladipo buys beachfront property. That beach in Miami?"

    Assuming Dipo would cost the max (who knows), they can easily have the room, but it would cost them more roster depth/assets than if they did something like sending us Precious to get him now.

    Dipo just has to wait the requisite 19 days before he is eligible to be traded for multiple assets.

    Trade#1
    https://tradenba.com/trades/mWRfRuLUD
    MIA: Victor Oladipo, Chris Clemons
    HOU: Tyler Herro, Kelly Olynyk, Kendrick Nunn, KZ Okpala

    Trade#2
    https://tradenba.com/trades/1AxsVMWcb
    ORL: Eric Gordon, Danuel House, Ben McLemore + 2 FRP
    HOU: Aaron Gordon, Mo Bamba

    Trade#3
    https://tradenba.com/trades/U_luvsiiy
    PHI: PJ Tucker, KJ Martin
    HOU: Matisse Thybulle + FRP

    *Rockets add more players under 30 as well as better spacers/3ball shooters and playmakers - great fits for Silas triple threat motion offense.

    *Starting roster and bench balanced with more length, defense and triple threat players.

    Wall/Nunn/Exum
    Herro/Brown/Nwaba
    Thybulle/Tate/Kurucs
    AG/Olynyk/KZ
    Wood/Boogie/Bamba

    *Wall + Boogie become trade deadline options for FRP or another young player with potential.

    *3 separate trades save Rockets $$$ and only lose 1 FRP from their huge FRP war chest of low first rounders.

    *Olynyk, Exum, Bamba, Nunn all expiring contracts.

    I always enjoy your posts, but man do you push Aaron Gordon trades hard. I'm convinced there's not a thread on Clutchfans where you couldn't find a way to sneak in an Aaron Gordon trade into the discussion. It could be a thread about Moochie Norris' hair, and you'd be like "You know who has great hair? Aaron Gordon. Check out this three-team trade I just came up with!"

    If Aaron Gordon ever does get traded to Houston, what are you going to post about?
