    We will probably buy out Fisher and he will re sign with the Lakers.

    How does this benefit the lakers? Cap room I'm guessing?

    I assume that Laker fans are even more confused..

    First solid move of the night, Hill was worth nothing and we get a very valuable 1st pick. Keep it coming, Morey.

    Correction: Fisher

    WojYahooNBA: Check that: The Lakers will send the Rockets its 2012 first-round pick (via Dallas) as part of the deal. [via Twitter]

    I hope Fisher rots on the bench!

    OK, since we are getting and not dealing the 1st round pick, this is better.

    Still not great, and we must be trading Dragic if we got Fisher - unless the injury to Lowry concerns the Rockets front office enough to get Fisher as a fill-in.

    Please Fish take a buyout and go back to Lala Land. I don't want that guy on my team.

    This move completely upsets me. Nothing splashy at the deadline, typical Morey. We love our chances to get that big star when the opportunity comes.

    derek fisher has a player option for next season. morey fails :mad:

    delfino has an expiring contract.

    this trade blows.

    Hmm. So the Rockets purposely add salary for the offseason. Which makes me think Morey isn't going to try to make some sort of huge FA splash. I guess there's still money for DWill if for some bizzare reason he wants to come here. But otherwise I guess fairly good use of the cap room. Fisher also means we don't have to play Flynn anymore.
