    Well, he didn't play too much, so I can't say I will miss him. I hope he gets a steady 15-20 minutes per game in Brooklyn. I thinks this works out for all parties involved. Excited to see what happens next, guys!

    With the Rockets trading K.J. McDaniels to the Nets it creates $3.3 million in cap space. Rockets will use that space, according to a source, to acquire another player who is brought out of his contract or a current free agent.

    Corey complained (this was when he was playing decently) he'd been "traded for a bag of potato chips." Now KJ will be able to say he was traded for nothing?

    fwiw: in BimaThug's expanded Lou Williams trade to get an expiring to trade, this nets Louis Scola.

    "Then if Nets have under 75 wins 2017 thru 2019, Nets keep the pick and it rolls over into a 31 thru 59 protection for only 2020"

    Rockets probably will NEVER see this condtional "pick".

    Jimmer? Is Emeka Okafor in shape? Ben Gordon? Sanders? Who else is available out there in NBA limbo?

    none of the cops that got killed by the Dallas shooter killed any unarmed people... They were actually protecting a BLM protest/rally thing..

    @MasonGinsbergDid not realize Houston is now below the cap with that KJ trade. Morey is sneaky, man.

    My point is he has never been truly "healthy" since he completely blew out his right shooting elbow. He has had to make due using his left hand and arm mostly. Given his talent, he has been effective the last couple of years especially on the Warriors who only asked him to set picks and play gritty defense. He has been a little banged up this year but seems to be getting as healthy as he can be.

    It is really a shame about his elbow injury because he could have had an even better career than he has now although he can say he has a ring at least. If he comes to the Rockets hopefully he can get a 2nd ring with us. I still don't know if I want him on this squad but he will definitely be a player you like to have on your team and hate him on someone else's (ala Beverley).

    I don't want anyone killed, but clearly you have no problem if certain people are killed..
