    I hate losing and watching my teams lose. I'd make a few trades to compete, with wall, wood, olidipo, cousins and tate as a pretty decent starting point.

    I wish we could tank but OKC has our picks. I wish we could compete, but that is not an option either. With Tilman running things I think we can expect sniffing the playoffs like the pre Harfen era for years to come. Our best approach would be the OKC approach of last season. Rehab peoples value and trade for picks.

    I actually think the team will be more fun to watch. I like Tucker, Gordon and House....but I think they 1 or all should get traded along with Clemons to free up a slot

    This is the correct answer. You tank. We have no choice but to build up through the draft. Its going to be really hard to move Wall.

    We can tank. We have our 2022 and 2023 first round picks. After that, we won’t be able to tank using our own picks until 2027.

    If the rockets go all in with a full rebuild right now, they might be able to compete in 2030.

    RUHFELL should be open for business.

    Tucker, Gordon, Oladipo...no player off limits.

    Trade oladipo if you can at the deadline for young player. Then trade wall next offseason and start a full rebuild

    Keep in mind that if this current team proves mediocre at the trade deadline, tanking might be our best bet. Oladipo would likely walk this summer, and Boogie is only signed for this year.

    there isn't any retooling with Victor Oladipo on an expiring.

    This team doesn't have its own pick this year so expect them to try to sneak into the playoffs now, let Oladipo walk for free in the offseason and attach newly acquired assets to dump Eric and Wall next offseason.

    This is a complete tear down with no control of the team's own destiny.

    Most egregious con job I've ever seen is Rafael helping Tilman buy the team so he could be his right hand man in cost savings!

    I'm curious how they will play in a new system with Harden gone. I have my misgivings about each of them, but thats alongside a ball-sucking diva.

    We don't have our own picks to tank. Mediocrity is on the horizon. Tilman ****ed us

    Meanwhile the Lakers, Mavs, and Clippers are fielding drones and are playing 2031 ball.
