    With the season over and the offseason excitement quickly approaching I figured it was time for a new “season” of random trade ideas. I’ll start it off with a big one.

    Two part shuffle to get younger and continue to contend.
    Trade One with Philadelphia
    Rockets trade: Harden, Gordon, Tucker
    76ers trade: Simmons, Richardson, pick(s), filler.
    Philly new roster is title worthy
    Harden Gordon Tucker Harris Embiid with Milton, Thybulle, Horford off bench
    Trade Two with Magic
    Rockets Trade Westbrook and pick
    Magic Trade Aaron Gordon, Bamba, filler
    Rockets 2020-21 roster
    Simmons
    Richardson
    Covington/House
    Aaron Gordon
    Bamba
    Plus potential cap room for free agents

    Did this trade even take into account the salary cap? You're sending Philly $64 million worth of salary while only taking back $40 million between Simmons and Richardson. Philly don't even have $20 million in filler salaries unless we're taking on Horford's contract too.

    It's awful, because it clearly benefits the opposing team instead of our Houston Rockets.

    Starting over and overhauling is what needs to happen. Y’all are quick to forget this “title” contender was a missed 3 pt shot by an undrafted rookie away from being a first round exit. My trade may be unrealistic and needs cap tweaks. This is the random trade ideas thread not the I’m actually the GM and this is what’s gonna happen thread. Ban me for having a little fun and suggesting something. Go for it.
