    Beverly will be healthy with a full year as a starter under his belt I see him getting better

    Harden will only get better

    Dwight looked like a complete animal in the playoffs get ready for a whole season of that

    Jones is about to make that second year as a starter jump he may turn the corner this year

    Nick Jones is looking like a steal and could be our 6th man replacing Lin

    With the Extra cap room we can bring over Clint Capela over this year and he could be jones and D12's backup plus he will be able to train with Hakeem and
    Mchale for a season.

    Cannan will have the backup job hopefully he's able to make the jump he already has the jumper

    Last but not least if we bring back Rfa Troy Daniels has the jumper to be a special player for us


    I'm ready to bring parsons back and start over

    I love your optimism! That's what we all need after the upset so that we can advance forward. With our core intact, all we need to do to improve from last year is to have consistent spark plugs to come off the bench. The only real thing that we will have a hard time to replace is Asik

    Right now for me...Motiejunas is the wildcard.

    He has a TON of skill...he just has to put it together man. He's still 23, he can still be a very good player in this league.

    We need to tell him to just stay in the post and stick to mid range shots and I bet he'd turn out to be a revelation for the Rockets...

    We still are really young, we just need better coaching and a deeper bench.

    LOL Nick JOnes......that's all I need to know about how desperate these fans are getting.

    It's Nick Johnson and he's not doing anything more than Scott Machado was.

    Young team? If you don't get something done in a year or 2...Dwight is opting out and leaving.

    Parsons is likely gone and he was one of the building blocks. So, I am not so optimistic.

    Yes. I ain't even worried. While I would love for Parsons to come back (but that contract, though), even if he doesn't, we're in good shape.

    If we don't get Parsons back, we can sign quality role players. Easier to do that than sign superstars.

    And all I need to know about your trash opinion is your sad name ( Knicks storm ) Lmfao

    Dude your crazy if you think Scott Machado did what Nick is doing I watched every game Machado played and he was always inconsistent on both offense and defense. Nick the PAC 12 player of the year ( not a mid major like Iona ) had always risen to his level of competition . I don't expect him to to be apart of the rotation early he may splend early on in the d league but he will come up early and contribute IMO . And the whole D12 opting out early is all wishful thinking by you . You sound like a bitter lin fan lol Please troll somewhere else

    Troy daniels looks like another luther head. Match parsons and let nick jones play. The kid looks ready to create. He reminds me of cassell. Tjones and dmo and lin's contract will be shipped out.

    So what is it with you?

    Are you still mad about 95 or something? Rockets are still miles ahead of the Knicks, as a franchise historically and today, so I'm not sure why you spend as much time as you do here insulting the team.

    Wrong, maybe you should have watched some of the summer league before you posted. I know it is summer league, but Johnson played well, and most of all he was consistent. I think he has a very good chance of becoming a role player in the upcoming season.

    This team is good and we can still make moves.

    This team needs a floor general( PG) and a new coach
