    Well, it's not like we are getting anybody else of equal value. We have no assets.

    Someone check on DaDakota. He is buying out the bar somewhere.

    Good news. I like D-Mo.

    LOL thats SAD . He is restricted they can keep him. Are they asking him to turn down a high dollar contract from another team so they can have cap space???

    I think its really good news. He is a really good defensive player that I think will fit the Mike D'Antoni offense really well. I absolutely see a lot of DMo / Beasley front court next season.

    Definitely would like him back, we shouldn't overpay though. He's a good depth guy. With him and Capela we can at the very least say we have two good rotation bigs. Beasley gives you some minutes too.

    For a restricted free agent?

    I guess we're trying to convince him to take less

    I think this is fair for DMo. With the injuries and the lack luster '15-'16 year, this is not a bad offer.

    I wonder how he feels after they tried to pawn him off to Detroit for a pick back in Febraury

    Tks for the info, Clutch! DMo's a very good rotational player when healthy. He gives us good offense, boxes out nicely on defense & runs the court well. Really excited to see what he can do in Pring's system.

    Do your thing, Clutch!!! :grin:

    Hey DMo, sorry we traded you. It's not that we didn't want you, we really did want you, we just didn't know it at the time. You know what we mean. Well, we may not have wanted you back then, but we REALLY REALLY want you now. Since the Rockets are the only team that Durant has said he's not considering, we really do want you back DMo.

    Here DMo, we got you an IPad 4 and a new Dynex 37" TV to show you how much we want you back. This isn't something we do for all our free agents. Oh, and Clutch the bear made you a cake.
