    That goes back to the league has jurisdiction with actual punishment which i already mentioned. NBA teams are free to waive/release players any time they want. Separate from the punishment referenced here. Ala Spurs got rid of Primo and moved on immediately

    KPJ:

    Causing arguments and frustration in the garm since 2020.


    Trade him, cut him. Just get rid of him.

    This is recycled incorrect information from Woj. The "can't waive" part is incorrect. The rest is correct.

    Well, actually, the "By-Laws" part isn't really correct. Most of what is stated there is in the CBA, not the By-Laws.

    Over the past two decades, I've seen media get their CBA facts wrong often, even Woj.

    Wasn't his trade value garbage even b4 this abuse incident? It should have tanked and stay there when he quit on the team.

    Thank you!!! Obviously, they don’t believe us, may they will believe Bima!

    The Rockets need to ADD or keep salary, thus he has to trade KPJ....I still dont know how they think Tilman is being cheap

    Is KPJ's contract expiring soon? The Rockets may not guarantee the contract after the recent incident, which would free up a roster spot and 20m in cap space, right? Who else in free agency could be signed for 20m if he isn't traded now? I'm a bit confused about the situation and the thread's title. Can someone help clarify?

    ..... the fact that I have to spell this out, SMH.


    They are attempting to move a toxic asset for some kind of positive asset.

    I get that overly emotional simple minded fans just want something, anything, done immediately... but there's a reason those kinds of people don't get to make ANY decisions that matter.

    Again grant people time, why is is so important to you that people come around instantly.....

    Tilman is not necessarily cheap all the time but he is not the greatest of owners.

    So what. Other teams have stars, has everyone been successful?

    Why should anyone coddle toxic morons throwing emotional temper tantrums about things they don't understand?

    The solution is for them to be better, not for everyone to just allow them to continue to fling their feces at everyone.

    Whining and throwing feces is part of being a fan , but instead of feces tomatoes and eggs.

    They signed him to a “4-year” contract.

    Only the first year is guaranteed (and the Rockets or whoever his next team is have non-guaranteed years on the final 3 years).

    https://www.spotrac.com/nba/houston-rockets/kevin-porter-jr-31589/

    2023-24 $15,860,000 ($4,758,000 incentives)
    2024-25 $15,860,000 ($4,758,000 incentives); non-guaranteed, $1 million guaranteed on 7/1/23, $3 million guaranteed on Opening Night, $6 million guaranteed 5 days after 2024 trade deadline (est. 2/28/24), fully guaranteed on 6/30/24
    2025-26 $15,860,000 ($4,758,000 incentives); non-guaranteed, fully guaranteed on 6/30/24
    2026-27 $15,860,000 ($4,758,000 incentives); Club Option/non-guaranteed, fully guaranteed on 6/30/25

    Total Incentives: $19,032,000
    2023-24: $0 LTBE, $4,758,000 ULTBE (>=60 reg season games, team wins + playoff metric)
    2024-25: $0 LTBE, $4,758,000 ULTBE (>=60 reg season games, team wins + playoff metric)
    2025-26: $0 LTBE, $4,758,000 ULTBE(>=60 reg season games, team wins + playoff metric)
    2026-27: $0 LTBE, $4,758,000 ULTBE (>=60 reg season games, team wins + playoff metric)

    Unless the NBA voids his contract (and even then I’m unsure…), the Rockets won’t pick up or have $15M in cap space, they won’t have $15M to go spend (if they release him).

    I swear, you guys will literally find any reason to hate on this organization. Who wouldn't be looking to trade him? That's what you should be asking.

    Okay, that's totally fair if we're talking about during a game, I'm just saying there's a time and place for that sort of thing. Being crazy unhinged during the offseason over how the team is getting rid of a toxic player is just not it.

    A shitty longer term contract isn't a positive asset.

    That's not necessarily true depending on the player, the contract, and what the team plans to do with it.

    There's no defending the moronic emotional whining.

    @BimaThug how much can the Rockets spend right now to replace KPJ if they waived him and have to eat the salary?

    Embarrassing he's still on the team. Waive him. Immediately.

    He's a billionaire for crying out loud. $15 million is barely a drop in the bucket.
