    That's the scenario i'd like to see us end up with, but i do wonder if that's even possibile, i don't see anyone moving down the top 6 picks, i feel like we might get there if we trade Wood too, but i don't know, what teams could've interest in Wood? Toronto and the Warriors if they move Wiseman for Beal maybe.

    Are we thinking, in your opinion, of stapling the #13 to the #2 for the #1?

    EGO, #23, #24, #2 for #1?

    Or #2 Green and #13 Whomever our Boy Happens 2 B?

    Sorry if something was lost in translation for me. We're buying a townhome and between real estate, insurance, mortgage.........brain, boom.

    This works out perfect for all teams regarding the trade rumor of Houston/Pacers/Rockets. Charlotte doesn't need more picks, they need better players, and Myles Turner fits perfectly into their current timeline. They give up the 11th pick for him. Indiana gets that 11th pick for taking on EG. Rockets get the 13th pick for EG. Sounds crazy, but it actually works out well for Indiana since they seem to be ready to move on from Myles.

    This would make sense though do we know if Charlotte can take on that contract? Also don’t think the 11th pick is available and some future picks of theirs as well as our 23 & 24th pick.

    Yes Charlotte can take on the contract since they are going to have some cap room (trade may need to happen when free agency begins, Charlotte likely renounces some players). Why isn't the 11th pick available? If trade happens after selection and after start of new NBA year (I guess when free agency starts), it shouldn't be a problem if you are trying to tell me that Charlotte conveyed their pick last year and isn't available to be conveyed this year.

    I don't see why Charlotte gets an additional pick. Myles Turner is a good player for their system. Maybe Indiana asks for one of our picks, which I'd do, but don't agree that we would have to give up two picks in the process.

    I was thinking Turner goes to CHA too ...
    If there are any Hornets involved, it can only be Terry Rozier coming here
    Not too excited about that ... except that he's expiring

    I'd be all for it the other way
    To net #11 & #13 ... I'd easily part with all of these:
    - EGo & House
    - #23 & 24
    - 2 FFRPs from wherever (top 10 protected)

    Seems too good to be true
    If we somehow pulled this off, I'd be ecstatic to come away with Moody & Wagner as our future at the Forwards

    I like it; can Hornets fit Turner’s contract without renouncements?

    I would prefer Turner to any draft picks... he is legit... the kids are guesses

    But i do get it.

    If we do end up with another lottery pick and select Kai Jones.... I would consider that a win-win

    I like our options for tomorrow.

    Gordon, and our two late picks for #13 (or #11?)

    Wood to Sac for Bagley / #9

    I'd be targeting Mitchell and Wagner. I like the shoot and defend guys. Get your guards / wings all set for the future and have two more terrible years to nab a franchise big, as the next two drafts are loaded with quality big prospects.

    Mitchell
    KPJ / Brooks
    Green / Tate
    Wagner / KMJ

    You must be on helluva magician to be making 95 million franchise guy disappear like that

    Knicks having a hard time trading 19 and 21 to get a pick between 11-14, so I doubt the rockets will do so with just 23 and 24.

    Draft tiers:
    1-6
    7-13 (yes please)
    14-24 (meh)
    24 - 30 (...)

    It's borderline between tier 2 and tier3 in the draft. What the heck, get that swap.

    Trading two picks for a diminutive 23 year old point guard doesn’t make much sense even if they could dump Gordon’s contract. Trade up for a Sengun-type player or just stay put and take a couple shots in the #20s.

    Not really a depth chart, a breakout of core pieces moving forward. Pieces that are actually important for the Rockets moving forward.

    Depth charts are useful for a team trying to win, as you know, that isn't us.

    Wall is is limbo, he doesn't belong here. He is just attached to us until he isn't. /shurg

    edit - and personally I don't get why teams pretend like you have to play guys. Just send Wall home for two years. Make him WANT a buyout.

    I have to imagine that would cause a huge stir with players, agents, coaches, media, players union... hell everybody all around the NBA. Can't DNP a player with Walls resume if he's healthy and wanting to play without making a lot of people angry which would be terrible for a number of reasons. Obviously, with us sending everybody where they want, we care about player and agent relations
