    To be fair, we don't know anything about this year's picks as NBA players (yet). I love the picks, but let's see them play a bit before saying they are successes!!

    Not quite. These guys are young. I mean OKC got KD/WB/Harden b2b2b for good reason.

    Being patient and awaiting this moment was always the move.

    Glad it’s all over with now.

    .....and immediately became a 50 win team. If these guys can't even do 30, it says a lot of bad things about their talent level, that's a SUPER low bar.

    Pending an Eric Gordon trade - hypothetically does this open the window to stick it to the Nets and actually extend Kyrie and Durant with our rookies?
    Sengun
    Jabari
    Durant
    Green
    Irving
    Porter - sixth man

    I disagree. The WC is really deep and very few truly bad teams. Even in the East, the teams who have been "tanking" all got a lot of talent in the past 2 years. They could easily be a much better team and still only win say 25-29 games.

    If that's all they win, Silas has to be gone for sure and they should probably have Stone on the hot seat. They won 22 while actively trying to tank with less talent. A 3 game improvement would be a serious disappointment.

    30 wins was good for 5th 6th 10th 6h worst records in the last 4 82 game seasons. I had to bet that is about where they will end up, 4-9th worst record.

    That was year 3.

    Year 1: draft KD - win 20 games
    Year 2: draft Westbrook - win 23 games
    Year 3: draft Harden/Ibaka - win 50 games

    ...and that's 3 future MVPs

    We just finished year 1...

    The Rockets really don't get anything out of this, other than a few million off the contract and whatever the team that signs him pays off as well, but it was good karma to do it, and that has to be noticed around the league's players.

    Him going does nothing to help, but it does show some compassion by the franchise towards Wall, and I am sure players around the league are noticing.

    End of an error. Bum couldn't even play well enough to warrant a pick from the Fakers.

    Nope. The Rockets are paying Wall 40 million dollars! Amazing he was able to get that buyout.

    Curious what the insurance/tax write off Tilman got on his whole contract.

    New team doesn't have to pay anything off the old contract. That's why it's a buyout. In Tilman's mind, this move pays for Jabari's first year.

    You say this as if we don't have a literal example of it.
