    I really don't understand the reasoning why Mobley would refuse. Doesn't make any sense. Even if there are rumors, that's literally not a good reason to skip it. What do you have to lose by working out with the Rox

    What do you mean especially Suggs? He was never going to be picked #2

    The reports coming out about Cade have all pointed to Detroit drafting him. The only exception is if Rockets traded down to #1

    If we can’t get BPA then trade the pick. Saying Green is the guy because the other won’t work out is wasting the pick in many ways. So use the pick in a different way and get the full benefits of OWNERSHIP of the 2nd pick. Gain assets by trading the spot or pick the best player available without working them out. Not using the pick to its full potential is like not having the pick.

    Nope I'm fully on the green train, since day 1. I just don't like of the thinking fans have about players. I can like green all day long. But I want the best guy and ain't gonna lock myself in to side things like other feeling or friendships. Its no place for that in this point of the rebuild. Its a rebuild, so no one is untouchable until we 100 percent have a franchise guy. I would trade kpj rn for cade. I like him, but your past is on you. So I don't trust him yet

    Since going 2 would be out of expectation, I'd imagine suggs would've wanted the chance to take the opportunity. Like applying to be assistant regional manager of a paper company but suddenly having the chance to interview for the manager position.

    Ultimately it's not a big deal either way. I'm guessing Suggs & Mobley or their agents (both share the same agency -Wasserman) found out Rockets already promised to take Green.

    Trades happen and if invited they should work out. They should fire their agent because he is costing them potential earnings. Acting like everything is in “Stone” shows the amount of nativity the agent has. (Pun intended)

    Green should be the pick. Detroit will take Cade and Green will have a huge chip on his shoulder because he feels he’s the number 1 prospect.

    Leggggoooo!

    This is true, however, I'm hoping he doesn't feel slighted because of the rumors of Houston willing to trade up to get Cade. I don't mind the Rockets trying to get the #1 but to announce in some way that it's for Cade is just stupid. They should have made it to where they felt the Pistons could take the player they were going for.

    Well, they’re worth a workout even if we traded down. I’d say Suggs and Mobley are officially blackballed. I’d rather have Giddey or Kai Jones anyways.

    He'll need that energy coming off the bench.

    What if all of this noise is a smoke screen because the FO are that hyped on Green and don’t want the Pistons pulling a fast one on them?

    Get the Filipino Gazelle then. Green Mamba it is.

    Bonus points for the Office reference.

    #2 draft makes a little more salary than #3, and #3 > #4. Plus no income tax in TX.

    Sure the goal is the future bag, but a rookie never knows where they'll be in a few years.

    Maybe the Rockets don’t look good in the eyes of Mobley and Suggs, by saying they don’t know what they want and they don’t know what route they are going to take.

    If Mobley and Suggs don’t like being paid $8 million a year to be developed, they can kick rocks. I trust the FO’s approach with financials and building a team with the right attitude. Phoenix and Milwaukee proved that culture > clout.

    Not a good look, and it was more than someone. Multiple people would have had to f that up.

    You may need to add Green to list of no workout with Rockets.

    More rumblings that he wants to be picked #1.
