    I don't think it's that bad... Olynyk is an upgrade at the 4 and backup 5... he can space and he's a legit big...

    Bradley is probably roughly the same as Oladipo defensively but with a better 3ball. He's probably better as a spot up shooter...

    No long term money back... they could actually be better from the deal if eric Gordon can come back to start...

    All I heard was Giannis was offered for Herro, Pat Riley said no.

    U know those 2 are gone and may never even suit up ? Also we are not trying to win anymore games. It's Tank Season.

    That "playoff push" was against injury ridden/weak teams. This was always what it was going to be.

    i don't get it, are there people who WANT the rockets to try to be the 8th seed this year/next year instead of tanking?

    But look at all the goodwill they created by trading Oladipo to his preferred destination! I get it for PJ and Harden, but who the hell cares where he wants to go. Get the best return available for him.

    A lot of folks are fans of a team, but don’t really follow the game - they only really know big names, kind of how Shaq and Barkley are on TNT ..

    Rockets already tanking this season to try and protect top 4 pick

    LeVert and Dipo are clones ...neither would move this franchise in the next couple of years

    Once a player makes it known they only want to be traded to (insert teams) it kills their value - this is not the old NBA where trades just popped up out the blue and players went with flow

    Miami wasn’t giving up Duncan Robertson or Herro for Dipo because he was coming there already this summer

    So we would be a playoff team, had Wood not gotten injured?

    As strange as it sounds, Rondo was the 3rd best player on the team that won the championship last year. Not that the haul for Oladipo isn't embarrassing.

    Rockets have turned into the punching bags for players. If I am Danuel House and I have strippers in New York, I am demanding a trade for 6-8 weeks only to NYC and Stone will make it happen for you.

    Tilman refused to resign Trevor Ariza to the salary he is currently at and he is still more valuable than what the Rockets got for Oladipo lmao it’s too perfect.

    The Rockets should be clowned on. Bunch of clowns.

    I really don’t care what they say. Everyone on The 4 letter network is a hater, everyone is a front runner.

    I will say that to me, this whole thing is Tilman’s fault. That’s all I have to say about that.

    I believe he would have dealt with Philly if they were willing to throw in Maxey. why not? he dealt him to Brooklyn where Mike D is. what is the difference ? Mike probably hates him more than morey does.

    there would have been a chance. Rockets were playing very well on defense and offense.
