    depends on boogie/wall health at the beginning of the season.

    i could see a wall/eg/harden/wood/cousins being our best lineup. but im curious what kind of defense wood and cousins can play

    I think House may start. But if boogie can play. I rather slide PJ to the SF spot. He's a better defender than House, although House has improved. PJ also does some of the defense audibles. Harden and PJ will have to do some of that, as the new faces might not know which spots to stand in the Rockets system at the beginning of the season.

    In most games PJ may not have to uphill battle opposing team's tallest guy. That could translate to restful legs to get his corner 3pters back up.

    Wall
    Harden
    PJ
    Wood
    Cousins

    Offense isn't too much of a concern, we need to have better defense this year.

    Can we use that Wall 1st round pick to move Eric Gordon now?

    3 teams near the bottom in team salary stand out:
    Hornets $105M
    Knicks $93M
    Thunder $93M

    don’t want to trade him to Thunder with all their 1st’s and 2nd’s........but to Hornets or Knicks?

    Awhhh what the heck:

    Houston in : Darius Bazeley (6’8” PF)

    x

    Thunder in : Eric Gordon

    https://tradenba.com/trades/OgwG7KhSM

    I will take it to the trade thread. Saves us $14M off our payroll.

    So you want to move him for nothing of value coming back when you are trying to compete for a title? I don’t understand the logic in here at times.

    Because we have a million guards. Most wont get playing time.

    Wall
    Eric Gordon
    McLemore
    Gerald Green
    Sterling Brown
    Harden
    Nwaba
    Jerian Grant
    M Jones
    Clemons

    Not all need to make the team......but Eric Gordon is completely overrated and clogs up the works.

    Harden and Wall are the only guards that are better than EG. Everyone else on that list is a scrub. Comeon man. Dude had a bad year last year but the team as a whole wasn’t very good. He will bounce back.

    You got Harden coming off the bench? Bold play.

    My take exactly, people excited about green coming back or bmac and other new signing thinking they are better than EG hahaha. In the last playoffs he carried us in game 7 vs okc and played big in every win. Against the lakers, they played box in 1 with him as the only offensive threat on the floor. Thats called respect, something a lot of rockets fans dont have for eg unfortunately.

    And EG did a good job guarding CP3 in the playoffs.

    That is the best starting five from a talent standpoint we can throw out their and it also gives us EG and House off the bench to shoot threes and score. Both have show they can hit 5-6 threes in a game but also miss every shot they take that’s why since neither is as good at D as tucker I’d put them both on the bench.
