    apparently when the bogut trade rumours when spreading around the league like fire, and morey was reported to be showing great interest in the trade, and then suddenly a few tweets came around saying "the rockets have now stopped pursuing bogut, suddenly moving onto another trade". I totally thought it was gonna be someone BETTER AND BIGGER than Bogut, e.g. Gasol or Howard. It all turns out that we were moving to pursue Derek Fisher.

    Any truth to the rumor that Scola will be meeting Fisher at the airport when his flight arrives?

    Lowry probably won't be back for at LEAST another week, probably more. At least Fisher takes care of the ball and doesn't get beat on every. Single. Possession. When he tries to play defense... unlike Flynn.

    I'm okay with Fisher as backup PG 15 minutes a game for a couple weeks. Any longer than that and I don't know if I can deal.

    Not true. The Fisher deal was sort of last minute after the Lakers trade with Minnesota fell through. We may never know who Morey was really after.

    So if we miss the playoffs, we will have 3 first round picks in a stacked draft. Probably one top ten, one 10-20, and one 20-30. Thats pretty solid in my book.

    Aha!!! I finally figured it out!!

    Darryl brought in Fish to help him negotiate a contract extension with ole Les!!!!

    Yup!


    In all seriousness, I think I know why Daryl traded for Fish. Will tell you in a little bit.

    Getting rid of hill is like addition by subtraction.

    Hill was terrible.

    If we can get anything out of that pick then it's worth it as well for that too.

    Even if we do keep fisher he is still at best going to be 3rd string and perhaps a stabilizer here and there for rest of season and playoffs. That is worth more on its own than flynn and what flynn would bring. Honestly hill wasn't giving us anything we have now a chance at a pick.

    You have to look at the trades more as camby,fisher,pick for flynn, Thabeet, Hill..
    to me clearly we won and got rid of baggage in the process. Getting camby out of the shiatshow that was flynn thabeet and hill is enough on it's own. give me a just in case vet (who will be 3rd stringer btw) with 6 rings and a pick too and camby? yeah sure I'll will take it

    Hill wasn't terrible, he was servicable and we got consistently outrebounded when he was out. Stop making things up.

    Agreed, he wasn't terrible. But at the same time I think Camby is a pretty significant upgrade.

    A most generous analysis. What it proves to me is that Morey is a chess player where it is good to think several moves ahead, but this isn't chess, and it appears that the moves he lines up never materialize and we are stuck with taking out the trash.

    Well a first round pick is a first round pick.

    That is all.

    Because we get a first rounder in a stacked draft class and don't have to watch Jonny Flynn pretend he can play basketball anymore.

    Yeah IF we miss the playoffs. A lot of smart people here are saying these trades will propel us to the playoffs.

    So did we get the Dallas pick or the Lakers?

    I don't know why you guys are so upset. Fisher has been averaging around his career numbers in every category besides his shooting %. I think he will fit this offense well until we get Lowry back.
