    Harden has always been PG on team. Neither Anderson or Gordon will push Ariza or even Brewer off roster. More like Bev is now coming off bench again.

    Harden
    Gordon
    Ariza
    Anderson
    Capela (unless D-Mo is signed)

    Codman said the BIRDS are coming, i.e. the Pelicans i.e. Anderson & Gordon!

    Gordon 3pt shot was a difference-maker for the last year's Pelicans team (they were horrible anyway)

    Eric made around 50% on his threes in wins and 33% in losses.

    That's a much better Marcus Thornton for this team

    Too injury prone. I don't thino you guys understand that this guy has missed half of his career sitting on the sideline in a suit.

    I really do not want Eric Gordon. I would rather throw money at Barnes and move Harden to PG.

    Rather get Thornton back. Should be much cheaper too.

    Yep...the plus side is that people wanted shooters and the Rockets are trying to get shooters...so that's a good thing.

    Gordon is not bad at a Jeremy Lin base type deal of 12 mil for 3 years. Morey could possibly add incentive clause for potentially more if he meets a games played minimum.

    This off-season is not only different for the Rockets because of the salary cap but because of the style of play they are trying to transition to. Howard couldn't get on board with it and it caused chemistry issues. Anderson and Gordon would have no issue jumping on board.

    They question is could these guys play just enough to defense to still be able to outscore everyone. The big question mark here is going to be Capela's defense and rebounding. I am sure they might try Dmo at 5 in some lineups since at times he showed good positional dejense. However, he is not a shot blocker and mediocre rebounder at best. Anderson is an underrated defensive rebounder.

    Not saying that I agree with all these changes but I see what they are trying to do. Instead of whining I am trying to be positive and hope for the best. The NBA as a whole is changing and to be honest this is what Harden wants. In case you haven't noticed, stars run the league now.
