    I still want Lance ****ing Stephenson. We could always gets Brooks or Aug with the bi annual exception or part of the MLE.

    But it looks like Morey isn't even glancing in his direction.

    Good value. Love the way the contract has been structured. Half the cost for about the same production Parsons can bring you, with better defense.

    I don't know about re-signing Parsons now. I don't believe he could cut it as a stretch 4. Offensively it could make some sense, but defensively a lineup of Howard/Parsons/Ariza/Harden/Beverley gets killed by the big boys like OKC, SA and the Clippers.

    That's actually a steal compared to Parsons and exactly what we needed, a lockdown perimeter defender.

    Seems to be getting a better reception here than on twitter. Honestly, if the Bosh thing didn't almost happen, I think most Rockets fans are happy with the Ariza signing.

    I like Hawes shooting ability, I dislike his absolute zero rim protection. I think that would be a dangerous combination with how bad our perimeter defense has been for the past couple of seasons.

    good singning, but you know its a bad offseason when Melo and Bosh turns you down,and you lost Asik, Lin and Parsons (possibly) and all you get is Trevir Ariza

    so, is there hush hush money going to Ariza's pockets?

    Okafor would be a great addition to the bench. We could also use a point guard unless the front office REALLY loves Nick Johnson.

    Lets say we do keep Parsons and move him to the 4. He is definitely going to undersized, but on the flip side he might cause some defensive issues against other teams PF's because he can create shots off the dribble, drives and is fairly quick.

    Hopefully it is to replace Casspi, not Parsons

    Beverly/ Augustin
    Harden/ Daniels
    Ariza/Parsons
    Marion?/Jones/Dmo
    Dwight Howard/Jermaine O'Neal/ Capella/DMO

    Do we have the cap space available to get Jameer and Birdman then also match Parsons after that ?

    Both Ajinca and Withey are serviceable backup centers, I'm sure we can demand one of them in our Asik trade, as well as possibly Anderson instead of their draft pick.

    To the people who say that Parsons shouldn't/isn't being resigned. Stop.

    Ariza at this value makes him an asset, and can be moved for a bigger piece (his declining contract).

    If you think Morey is rolling into this season with Ariza as our only SF, with another subpar 4, then you are mistaken.

    Morey is in it to win it. Parsons needs to be matched.
