    GP2 didn’t have a cheap team option hanging over his head. But yeah that GP2 contract is a lot.

    THAT'S a huge difference. It makes much more sense now. Good job, Stone.

    Who? ;)

    I'm waiting on the training wheels to come off before I get back into watching the Rockets.

    Don’t like tying up any cap space on limited players like Tate. At least the third year is a TO and he should be pretty easy to trade.

    This won’t make a dent in our enormous 2023 cap space. We probably could still absorb two max contracts even with this signing.

    Tate is a solid piece. He has a niche in the NBA.

    keeping him was a good move.

    Wow, Houston for once actually did the declining contract? And included a team option, which will likely be at a number below the taxpayer MLE by 2024-2025, and also has unlikely bonuses?

    I'm so happy...Is this what BimaThug feels like when any team generates a trade exception?

    @Phillyrocket how you liking your Philly Rockets? :p

    The Tate deal feels like an overpay. Tate on a very bad NBA team next year will be coming off of the bench, if Smith and Eason pan out. I don't think that there will be much trade interest in Tate the next 2/3 years. I also think that Tate signs for less this offseason if he was a UFA.

    The long play here is that upcoming FAs will see we treat our players right.

    LOL. There’s no way to view this as an “overpay.” If Tate was an unrestricted FA, he’d get way, way more. Just look at the deals other teams are shelling out. You can’t argue that Tate would somehow land less he got, especially since the last year is a team option.

    Tate knows what is coming to the Rockets. He wants along for the ride.

    That is a sensational deal for Tate. Very good chance he significantly outperforms that, and on a 2 year deal almost zero chance it becomes a bad deal in any way.
