    Because the reported asking price to take on his salary is 2 first round picks. Probably the only way we'll see him gone is if he's traded for Melo. I could see the Knicks doing that just to get a disgruntled player away from Porzingis and Ntilikina before they're soured too.

    Please explain how Morey is going to move the guy if other teams don't want him.

    Morey can trade himself as a sweetener in a deal with Anderson to a bad managed team (you know for fact that Chicago or Sacramento owner would love to get Morey), and than fake a mental disorder and get bought out.

    You hit it yourself above. ESPN was reporting Rox is working on a deal with NYK for Melo. Ryno had to be involved.

    If it's a tough as it sounds then Houston will likely have to take on Courtney Lee's contract with the trade exception. That's incentive for the Knicks to do a deal..

    YOU MAKE 19 MILLION? We could have traded you to the Clippers instead of losing quality players like Quarterman and Hillard.

    Morey is terrible at his job.

    Chris Paul will make about 330k less than that next year. You are missing Shawn Long's non-guaranteed salary in 2018-19. Isaiah Taylor also has non-guaranteed salary in 2018-19. We won't be using cap space to sign anyone though, just the exceptions. I also still think the $11M TPE was a mistake made by Morey after a long long day in the office. There was no way this trade, or any of the trades today, created a TPE.

    Who?

    :)

    Morey just used the TPE wording, so he doesn't offend the players in question and their agents by calling them trade chips/assets. There is no TPE, but all the insignificant players on mostly non-guaranteed deals allow the Rockets to operate pretty much as if they did have one.

    Yes, but he waived most of it to make the trade work.
