    That 16th pick is key to everything.

    How is it a salary dump when they have the same amount of years and money remaining?

    That’s not a given coming back from a serious injury. I know he looks good in the off-season, but he’s not been healthy in forever.

    I want to get rid of Russ, but I’m not so sure Wall is a winning player either. He’s definitely not worth the contract.

    It’s gotta include Beal and #9.

    Russ/Gordon
    Wall/Beal/2020 #9

    The rockets aren’t winning regardless and neither is westbrick. Which is why his value is garbage. Wall at least has the favorable attitudes. Cf’s loves the unknown logic. It’s apparently better than what harden and the rockets were the last several years

    I agree the Rockets aren’t going to win unless they surprise the hell out of all of us. I just don’t want to exchange one bad contract for another unless we can add some really good picks or young talent with it.

    For how many games? He may be, but that contract along with his injury history scare the hell out of me.

    wall will be on limited minutes and heavy load management this year. next year he might be able to play starters minutes but not on b2b and will probably be a shell of his former self. maybe he's a strong starter next year, no more all star level play.

    to take that on for Westbrook who, we need to keep repeating, made an all nba team this season, requires significant assets coming our way.

    I would want:

    • move up from 16-9
    • 2 future firsts (1 pick for each year I have to eat walls contract)
    • Wagner
    • bonga

    they can keep brown and hachimura those guys are overrated.

    It’s 50/50. But next to harden wall doesn’t need to do that much. He can play more like Chris Paul and come playoffs try to play like his old self

    honestly, he was injured for 2 seasons, people make it out that he has been injured for 5-6 years

    previous to the last 2 seasons, he played at least 77 games 4 seasons in a row and he looks good now

    If Wall has his speed back, then he would be a great pick up. He looks good in the video i posted. Shooting isn't his strong point, but he hit a few outside shots in the youtube clip

    not so sure he'll be playing next to harden. and no telling what he'll look like after 2 years without playing basketball and another year of playing limited minutes. Rose went from MVP to great 6th man pretty quickly. chance are wall is headed to the same level of play. that's why Washington is willing to pay us to take him for Westbrook. IF he manages to regain starter level play he still won't be worth his max contract. basically he'll be a negative asset the rest of the way. that's ok because the direction is to rebuild not to contend. we don't need him to play well. we need him to come with young players and picks.

    John Wall looks great in pickup.

    Wall going against Harden in Pickup.

    He looks so smooth shooting 3 pointers.

    You drinking some serious kool-aid. Three of those guys(Wall, Cousins, Ariza) should be in a wheel chair next season. One of them(PJ) is close.

    Hey man, If you get enough picks back and get to take a roll of the dice, why not?

    Wall might net us the 9th pick and Rui for the inevitable rebuild.

    Why not?

    Also, PJ has shown no signs of slowing down. Just as good as ever. Surely good enough for one final run.

    Rockets had to blow up their team to make Westbrook effective and he ended up being just as bad in the playoffs this year (terrible) as he’s been the past three years.
