    Shoots 35% from 3 last season, better 3P than Russ or EGo.

    Need to play Simmons at 5. He can be a point 5 like Russ and attack finish or attack and kick.

    I tweaked the trade:

    BOS: Chris Paul, Paul George, Pat Beverley
    PHI: Kemba Walker, Gordon Hayward (opt in)
    LAC: Russ Westbrook, Danuel House, Austin Rivers (opt in)
    HOU: Ben Simmons, Marcus Smart, Daniel Theis

    6'3 Smart (26)
    6'5 Harden (30)
    6'7 RoCo (29)
    6'8 Theis (28)
    6'10 Simmons (23)

    D Rock is on to something here:

    Vet min options: 6'8 Josh Jackson (fingers crossed), 6'8 Jeff Green, 6'9 Bruno Caboclo, 6'7 Ryan Broekhoff, 6'9 Jonah Bolden, 6'6 Justin Anderson, 6'6 Theo Pinson, 6'4 Tyler Johnson

    This is where our priority should be. We need to be looking and signing team friendly contracts with players that obviously obtainable even if a little above the minimum. Putting active players around 2 MVP talents is not only smart but doable. We don’t need someone else wanting the ball and having an options. Grateful for the opportunity and ready to help is the goal.

    that guy is full of ****. He was from California yesterday and Houston today. He’s a ****ing liar who is trying to troll.

    **** all The noise. Trades aren’t open yet and harden isn’t going anywhere yet.

    I mean, for the Rockets the Wolves would be a much better fit in a trade, better pick/s, more young players to take back...at the same time i can see Harden having no interest in playing in Minnie, and Gersson ain't moving the farm for a player that won't commit long term.

    More like two, he has a player option on the third year so, he can opt out and become a free agent in 2022.

    Ok. The 2 years would at least allow Minny to show Harden its potential

    Sure, but still...hard to imagine he would be ok with ending up in Minnie to play with crybaby Towns and chucker D.Lo, but that's just me. And fwiw i don't even see the fit there, Harden and D.Lo aren't made to play together imo, add Towns and you would also have an absolutely awful defense.

    More I think of it, keeping Philly and Morey out of this trade would make Tilly happier.

    LAC: Russ Westbrook, Al-Farouq Aminu
    BOS: Paul George, Terrence Ross, Landry Shamet, Jalen Lecque
    ORL: Gordon Hayward (opt in), Danuel House, Frank Kaminsky, Austin Rivers (opt in), Ben McLemore
    PHX: Pat Beverley, Romeo Langford, Vincent Poirer
    HOU: Aaron Gordon, Kelly Oubre, Marcus Smart, Mo Bamba

    Clips - Kawhi gets his superstar PG and another starter at forward, Russ goes home

    Celts - get superstar for expiring injured superstar; wing depth and young explosive guards

    Magic - 3's galore: superstar forward who is also playmaker and spacer; more 3ball shooters from 2-5; back up PG also 3ball shooter and creator to replace DJ

    Suns - elite defensive PG to run with Booker; young guard in Langford and 5 to replace Baynes

    Rockets - get younger, longer, more athletic, much better defensively.

    Smart (26)/EGo
    Harden
    Oubre (24)/Nwaba
    RoCo/PJ
    AG (25)/Bamba (22)

    MLE: Josh Jackson (23) or Harry Giles (22)

    https://www.chatsports.com/nba/a/Ro...ffering-Chandler-Parsons-A-Max-Contract-17705

    You remember the iconic Morey quote?

    "The teams that find the Chandler Parsons, not the ones that pay them the max, are the ones that succeed long term."

    https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id...ericks-stole-chandler-parsons-houston-rockets

    And Morey was right.

    The next Myles Turner is Mo Bamba. Except Bamba is younger, 3x cheaper, longer, more athletic, better ball handler, better disruptor, more switchable and possess an Ivy League IQ.

    Under Harden's mentorship, Bamba can finally unlock his potential like when Beard took Capela under his wing.

    But we need to act soon, other teams have taken notice and are taking Morey's famous words to heart.

    Only way I do this trade is Rockets expand it.

    ORL: Russ Westbrook, Frank Kaminsky, Ben McLemore
    PHX: Markelle Fultz, Al-Farouq Aminu
    HOU: Aaron Gordon, Kelly Oubre, Mo Bamba, Jalen Lecque + Magic SRP

    6'5 Harden/6'3 EGo/6'3 Jalen Lecque (20)
    6'7 Oubre (24)/6'5 Nwaba
    6'7 RoCo/6'6 House
    6'8 AG (25)/6'5 PJ
    7'0 Bamba (22)

    MLE: 6'10 Harry Giles (22) or 6'8 Josh Jackson (23)

    Tucker needs to go because we don’t need to pay him. You have him as a back up. His role could be cost cut with someone like Bolden or Bruno or even sign both and save. Signing both then flipping one as positive filler on Eric Gordon trade at the deadline.

    Well, if Tillman decides to blow it up ... new coach, new system and not quite rebuilding with All Stars Simmons and Booker running the show.

    https://basketball.realgm.com/wiretap/260118/Devin-Booker-Reportedly-Already-Wants-Out-Of-Phoenix

    First trade : http://www.espn.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=yxubr6nn = draft picks to the Suns via the 76ers, because the Rockets don't have any.

    Second trade : http://www.espn.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=yx92rzdj

    PG : Simmons/Rivers
    SG : Booker/Richardson
    SF : Oubre Jr./McLemore/Nwaba
    PF : Aaron Gordon/Scott/Caboclo
    C : Mo Bamba/Harry Giles (FA)/Chandler (veteran min if he wants)

    Release : Green, Carroll, Sefolosha and Mbah a Moute.
    Sign Harry Giles in free agency and fill in the other spots with veterans or prospects.

    Not going to happen I guess, but would be fun. :D

    How is this going to work with the cap situation? I like Hield.

    Hield just signed an extension so the salaries match up. I also feel like the Kings are an organization that would trade for Westbrook to make a push for the playoffs for the first time in a long time.

    Interesting, I would consider it if Nemenja wasn't weak on defense. His shooting is great, and he can pass, even get to the rim sometimes. A rich man's Ryan Anderson, I dare say. I like Buddy.
    I would appreciate your comments to my post.
