    No signing Austin Rivers until he changes his name to Houston Rivers!

    I’m not as concerned as many people are about this signing, but I have a lot of reservations.

    First, we have to assume that this was first passed by both Harden and CP3. Also there is no trade market right now, and if people think there is you’re not looking.

    Every single team in the West is competitive (even the Suns now...) and in the East no one is in a tank mode either. I think Morey and the team decided it was better to shore up the support now versus waiting for a market that may not be available until closer to trade deadline.

    Also I think it’s good that we’re bringing in someone who’s not buddy-buddy with the team. We saw how Melo turned out. For all of the nonsense Rivers has done to the Rockets we do know that he is competitive and wants to win. And if Rivers thinks Tucker or Nene will allow him to act a fool you know he has another thing coming.

    So... I’m going to hope for a Jason Terry here.

    Cleverly disguised 'make CP3 request a buyout' moves.

    I want Austin to act maturely and be an asset to the Rockets. It is a desperate move and probably not a good one.

    I think we'd need someone who is more of a pure point guard.

    He got his 25 minutes and one of his worst stretches of a season, you could forget it.

    The Wizards are a ish show so you could forget it anyways.

    Last season however was his best season statswise. Career highs.

    No one wants him. He has been out of the game for too long.
