    Guess Tilman and Stone are preparing for both scenarios:
    - no trade for Harden --> use it
    - Harden deal presents itself --> save money

    @BimaThug
    I'm shocked at the outcome from the draft. I'm embarrassed to ask you what is the current cap space for the Rockets right now? Is the NTMLE available for the Rockets?

    The only way to do that would be to acquire Harkless and Noel. They could have easily kept Ro-Co, and gotten Noel with the smaller MLE. A vet minimum pickup of Trey Burke would have completed the team. House could continue as the SF.

    You’re on crack cocaine....no way we get Wood for 10 million a year. He’s going to easily get 20+ a year offers from several teams. Best player in the NBA next to LeBron.

    In all fairness, it should be a pretty good second rounder as there are no protections on it.

    Tired of all you non-Tilman believers!!! 100% guaranteed that he uses a PORTION of the MLE to appease the fans.

    I’ve heard they are targeting Gordon Hayward. Gallo wants to play for a contender. My guess is the Lakers or Heat or someone like that.

    We need Woods so that we get the Clint Harden connection plus a 5 that can shoot and guard on switches

    Wow didn’t see that. That’s huge for them. Must be offering tons of money to both.
