    We need to start working on the 2nd and 3rd roster spots, not the 15th and 16th.

    In other words, Morey is going to have a pathetic offseason in FA market again.

    Ok, can't complain about missing out on Jackson now.

    A defensive C, a defensive PG and a stash prospect with potential. Guess I can't b**** tonight.

    I believe John Lucas III actually played more regular NBA games for the bulls than for the Rockets.
