    If Stone gives up 3 FRP in any trade on this rebuilding Rockets team, I will owe you a beer.

    And you think I'm delusional about AG and Bamba but you have to give up on the Mitchell Robinson dream.

    Robinson is a starter and core piece on the Knicks, especially under Thibs.

    That trade proposal is very fair IMO.

    Would be great if Rockets can piggyback on any Lowry trade.

    Sorry I wasn’t clear...

    Rockets
    In: Griffin, Toppin, Hampton, Nnaji
    Out: Wall, Oladipo, Tucker (one of the three House, McLemore or SRP) & FRP- Portland

    We get younger bigger and cheaper. Griffin is a placeholder of the CP3–> Westbrook—> Wall—> contract. With one less year on it than we owe now. (That is worth the Portland pick). Nnaji and Toppin are FRP from just last year in a position of need. Hampton (FRP 2 years ago) replaces Wall at point. We have space & time to develop the lot.

    All for getting rid of Wall, but for Griffin + giving up FRP?

    Yikes

    Wall has to be more value than Blake right now.

    No way. Blake Griffin and DeMarcus Cousins were both tricked into drinking from the same false "fountain-of-youth, Holy Grail" that killed off the sucker American Nazi villain at the end of "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade".

    "Hey, Blake, I'll pay you more than thirty million dollars a year to NEVER jump again."
    "You're on!"

    I hope to heaven that Heat sign Boogie and tank their season and further devalue their player assets.

    *fingers crossed*

    76ers have the picks/young players to entice Raptors and salary space to absorb Lowry.

    Trading for 34 year old Lowry is sign that Morey is going all in to win it all THIS season.

    Would need to give up Danny Green and Mike Scott to make up enough salary to trigger trade.

    That should make PJ Tucker even more attractive to 76ers IMO.

    Lowry-Simmons-Tobias-PJ-Embiid would be formidable on offense AND defense with Maxey, Seth, Dwight off the bench.

    Rockets should also be well positioned.

    Yes just to make Wall go away. (Addition by subtraction) No way Pistons take on another year without some compensation.

    There are rumors that Blake may be bought out.

    That's how bad he's been.

    I don’t want Griffin to play, just get paid and stay out of the way. Wall is like a roadblock for development and I don’t see anywhere else to unload him. It’s more of an overpay to say good bye to Wall than anything.

    Please remember that Wall declared himself our franchise player.

    Also no one is giving a FRP for a 2 month Oladipo rental.

    Sure they might?

    Because
    A. it isn't a rental only if Vic is keen to play on there.
    B. You get his bird rights and can keep him where you might otherwise not have been able to sign him in the off-season due to not being under the cap

    More candidates to add to Rockets HOUnds defense.

    Thybulle, RoCo, Nance, Simmons, Drummond and Noel are all elite disruptors and thieves.

    Sub in Toppin then. I don’t care.
    It’s all about MPJ. I’ve got a month to make this happen.

    Myles Turner is a freak at rim protection.

    Embiid, Capela, JA, Noel are all closely grouped together in 3rd tier.

    Literally every contending team in the East wants Tucker. Apart from the Nets we should consider every offer.

    Sixers he'd be great in a 3 man forward rotation with Harris & Simmons.
    Get Ferguson and 2*2nd.

    Milwaukee adds Tucker they can play Giannis at the 5 more regularly. Get DJ Wilson and a 1st from the Bucks

    Pacers perfect with Sabonis or Turner
    McDermott Warren can share the 3.
    Take both Holidays and a 1st.

    Toronto Tucker is perfect small ball. Might need to wait for the Lowry trade but a 1st and a possible piece would be ideal

    Miami Tucker is the perfect Crowder replacement
    Leonard and a 1st would do. Would've preferred this year. But seems unlikely.

    Boston Nesmith and a 2nd.
    Moves Brown Tatum to the wings and Smart Walker to fight for the starting PG. Tucker can play small or big.
    Imagine Walker(healthy) Smart Brown Tatum Tucker to close.
