    This should take us to the Trade Deadline March 25, 2021

    Thu, Mar 11 Philadelphia
    Fri, Mar 12 Miami
    Sun, Mar 14 Toronto
    Tue, Mar 16 Oklahoma City
    Wed, Mar 17 San Antonio
    Fri, Mar 19 Denver
    Sun, Mar 21 Detroit
    Mon, Mar 22 Utah
    Wed, Mar 24 Cleveland

    What do you expect from this team

    Wood will be back
    Center Position should be decent with WOOD and PATTON backing him up
    Power Forward is PJ Tucker and Tate?
    Small Forward - House should be back . . .
    Guards - Wall and Dipo

    I expect Dipo/Tucker and maybe House to be gone by the deadline

    Probably win some games they shouldn’t, miss the playoffs, and not get a top 4 pick.

    I expect Gordon, Dipo and Tucker, AND BROWN to be gone by deadline. Nwaba has lost all of his trade value which is a shame.

    I'm expecting the second half of the season to go something like this:

    I expect that the Rockets will play better with Wood back and KPJ being with the team but will lose about as much given the difficulty of the remaining games. I suspect that by the end of the month the tank will be in full gear despite some posters here claiming they are about to "make their move" or that the team would be a "tough out" for Utah...

    It really depends on who we can trade by the break. If we can trade Dipo for picks, he's going to get 25+ minutes between off guard and point guard duties.

    There is no reason to not give him substantial minutes. This team isn't going to the playoffs. Might as well develop the young talent.
