    Rockets renounced the rights to Bullard, Sean Colson and Devon Gray tonight as well.

    I know we can still and actually might resign Bull but I wonder if this latest trade is telling us that Bullard is actually going to play in Charlotte.

    Is there no way to bring Bullard back under the cap now? I could see Bull come back if the Rockets move walt. I'd prefer him to Langhi and Morris is a rookie.

    Old School,

    Due to redundancy or Cap? If Cap, he has Bird rights, right?

    Cohen,

    I don't have any certain reason why he won't be coming back, just that he won't. With Rice and a younger, cheaper, Langhi, I don't think he is needed as much now anyway. I hate to see him leave but that's bid'ness.

    Since he got renounced, the Rockets could not use his Bird rights until next season if they re-signed him.

    He can come back, but for the minimum. A wink-wink, in effect, something that I don't see likely.
