Rockets would be dumb to let Houston sports media/Blogs influence them into trading Jalen Green

    With smoke there is fire somewhere. Last season someone posted that the Rockets don't see Jalen Green as the main piece to build around. There have been rumors that the Rockets wanted Bridges and wanted the trade centered around a Green package.
    The media and nothing is influencing whether or not to trade Jalen. I believe the Rockets want to trade Green. The bigger question right now is what is Stone holding on to Green for right now? Is there a package or player in sight that we are gunning for that we just don't know about? Something is in the works. Ime was definitely not brought in for a rebuild. Stone better work his magic real fast this offseason.

    Rockets gonna get the Marvin Bagley return when they trade this dude in the offseason…a mediocre guy who might be a rotation player and some 2nd round picks

    and that would still upgrade the roster

    Did you catch the 'insert X amount of games before this one'

    LMFAO. On one hand I want you to stay as stupid as you are basketball wise because it's hilarious. On the other hand for your sake I want you to develop just a LITTLE bit of basketball IQ.

    He was great tonight. God it's frustrating not knowing what you're going to get from him on any given night!

    According to you, he wasn't able to have games like this. You said his 5 game stretch was a fluke. Is he still the worst player on the team?

    Good game Jalen. Please keep it up for the rest of the season to raise your trade value.

    I'd assume he's worth either a good 2nd rd pick OR a mediocre player.

    Maybe the rockets can trade Jalen to the Suns since he has played well against them this year.

    But, I wouldn't be surprised if Jalen puts on his regular end of the year show and the Rockets hold onto him next year 'just in case he has breakout year'

    He’s not the best.. or 2nd best. Maybe 4th? Not what we looking for in terms of franchise player

    So you disagree with your counterparts that he's apparently the worst player on the team? And trash

    I'm not sold yet. He needs to keep playing like this consistently.

    One game doesn't change a players value.

    Let me know if he can play at that level 70+% of the time over a full month, and then maybe, I will eat crow.

    Does Jalen have small hands? He gets stripped so easily when he tries to drive through a crowd. Is he dribbling too high? It’s so frustrating.
