    Thoughts? (Can vote for more than one)

    Honestly, I think everyone benefited but portion of the Rockets fan base; since we're stuck with a tanking team and a future of unknown.

    I need to know what picks we've received and from who. I also want details on the swaps to see if they are opposite years from our OKC swaps or what. Very confusing.

    Depends on if Kyrie buys in / returns to the team (lol).

    Nets are the best team in the East right now, even without Irving.

    With Irving, the league doesn't stand a chance.

    We obviously don’t. Look what Pelicans got for AD in terms of players. Thank Tilman for that!

    The Lakers’ depth is pretty ridiculous. I think they may need an engaged Irving to beat them. Philly really missed the boat.

    No bench. No big man. How does harden play with Kyrie. It would be interesting. The team dynamic would be quite different.

    Winners so far:

    Harden for getting exactly what he wanted

    Oladipo for getting out of Indiana (what he wanted)

    Cavs for turning a Buck's 2021 1st (surely to be no better than 27) into Allen and Prince.


    Will assess again in a few years lol

    It's possible for everybody to win. But the Nets only win if they get a chip.

    This will eventually reap good benefits for us, if Brooklyn implodes it will be great benefits. Stone has honestly impressed the hell out of me, I think we got a winner. A superstar was never happening, and any team with harden was gonna be good for a few years, so no high picks for a few years either. This was the best he could do to get us back in position to rebuild long term

    And yes, our POS owner is gonna save his money. I f**king hate him with a passion, but whether I like it or not he's our owner. I enjoy Rockets basketball too much to give it up this easily, becoming Knicks south could change that eventually.

    Tillman gets another yacht. Obviously he’s the winner.

    According to ESPN; some info (not everything)

    "Houston also receives Brooklyn's three unprotected first-round draft picks -- 2022, 2024 and 2026 -- in the deal,
    The Rockets also get Cleveland's 2022 first-round pick, via the Milwaukee Bucks."


    The Rockets also get Cleveland's 2022 first-round pick, via the Milwaukee Bucks."
    "The Rockets have sent James Harden to the Nets in a blockbuster four-team trade that also involves the Pacers and Cavaliers, completing the unhappy star's exit from Houston and setting up a potential superteam in Brooklyn, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Ramona Shelburne.

    The Nets sent Houston a package that includes multiple players and draft picks and features guard Caris LeVert, who was then traded to the Pacers for Victor Oladipo, sources told ESPN.

    Center Jarrett Allen and forward Taurean Prince are headed from the Nets to the Cavs in the deal, according to sources, while the Rockets receive Cleveland guard Dante Exum and Brooklyn forward Rodions Kurucs.

    Cavs won this trade. They gave up a MKE late FRP for Allen...

    Idk why we gave away 3 years of cheap LaVert and Allen for peanuts unless Tilman refused to pay them.

    It's obvious Dipo is gonna get flipped at the dead for more picks since he's an expiring...

    We could really use a Jarrett Allen at the center, then Wood can play his natural position (the 4).

    Nets/Harden are the obvious winners.

    Remember how everyone hated the Nets package back when it was first reported? Fast forward a few months and a few Harden misbehavior and poor attitude later... wow look at all those shiny Nets draft picks!

    They somehow turn Levert, Allen, 3 picks and 3 swaps for James Harden. Originally people thought Dimwidee, Levert, Allen all their picks werent enough.

    Harden is also a winner. He acted like a toddler having a tantrum for 2 straight months and is rewarded by not only getting go out and play with his buddy in Brooklyn. He does so without ever losing a single game check or taking any responsibility for his actions. He leaves a Rocket franchise in a terrible spot (much of which through his action and influence) and joins a Nets teams ready to contend for the title.

    This was a great trade for the Rockets. Yeah, we lose on an all-time once in a generation player, but we get a super haul back and a good player in Oladipo. I can live with this trade. The team losing big name is always the loser but this is truly a best case scenario for a disgruntled superstar. Nice job Stone! Also, screw Fertits!
