    Is it possible to get Lee and Gordon at $10 mil per each?

    Gordon/Bev
    Harden/
    Barnes/KJ
    Anderson/Beasley
    Motie/Capela

    We need to sign Barnes and somehow sign-and-trade for Gordon :cool:

    Not sure what to think of a potential Eric Gordon signing.

    Does Harden play the 1? Is Ariza and/or Brewer gone? Or is Gordon coming of the bench?

    Ryno's signing should leave us with about 27M to spend.

    my bet is gordon (who will probably play half a season) will sign for half of what we have remaining (4/60) which would save some money for a PG.

    MDA would probably want something like:

    dmo-capela-onuaku
    ryno-beasley-harrell
    harden-ariza-dekker
    gordon-brew-KJ
    ???-beverley-GP2

    seth curry would fit the bill at the 1.

    Lee wants to be a starter. Would be great if Rockets wanted to make that happen.

    I fear in this market Gordon might be more like 4/68. :(

    If we had other key pieces, I would not mind going after him, but as it is, feels like we are trying to revamp our lineup with some pieces from one of the most underachieving teams from last year. Maybe that's why they're available though.

    Don't know if it's been posted, but :

    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Gordon, FWIW, is repped by the same agent as James Harden.

    Gordon has been a solid defender for years. What are you guys watching?

    Just when think you already saw the lows with the Anderson contract, here comes a new lower!

    17 for Gordon, then throw our remaining 10 at Llull to come over?

    He only played 45 games last year.

    What injury was he dealing with?

    I he fully recovered now?

    Similar health concerns as An_erson but Gordon is younger, better scorer and helluva better defender. This is not a bad signing.

    I love my rockets but that team isn't worth watching. I'm not entertained.

    Would like him at a salary that allows for the option of adding a max deal next year.

    We would definitely have some scorers but no go to offensive creator outside of Harden once again.

    Not the big 3

    But..... Eric Gordon when healthy, with Harden, would be a contender for the best offensive backcourt in the nba. Ryan Anderson will bring more to this team than I think most people realize offensively. His value is not in what he does but in how he makes those around him better. It's possible harden, Anderson and Gordon could put up 65ppg between them.

    Why not try to trade for Bledsoe instead?

    And it would be awful defensively, but dmo at the 5 with Anderson, harden, and Gordon would be an offensive circus in D'antoni's system.
