    People on here still sleeping on wall. He's looked good when Harden doesn't play. People will be shocked

    Silas is building up his value.

    Rockets choose to feature him instead of Harden so do not be surprised when he is moved at trade deadline or sooner.

    If TF is still the owner, expect many of the players from those picks to be paid forward for future picks as well. Rookie deals help you make mega yacht payments.

    Simmons is signed for longer than this year so never going to happen.

    his value doesn't change. even if he turns into an all nba wall, nobody is making a move for his super max deal anytime soon. all the super max guys have already essentially gone full circle. makes 0 sense for basically any contending team. he's not harden

    We arent competing later with those picks either. I would rather have used Simmons to get better picks. Maxey is also a good prospect, this deal wasnt good.

    I prefer the Philly deal but I also would want Simmons gone. I'd want him moved for something else, either picks or a young player, either way I absolutely do not want that guy on the rockets. But I still definitely prefer the Philly deal.

    Harden and KD are both skilled players who will age well. Kyrie will come back and get traded at worst.

    Lol...worse team still have better odds. We arent getting any great picks.

    I would rather had, Maxey, picks, Thybulled and flipped Simmons for Assets.

    That's not gonna have good value. You are gambling on Giannis getting injured, that pick is worhtless.

    As an asset I like Simmons more than anything we got.

    We dodged a bullet. Simmons and Wall out on the court together would have been awful. Both of them are not heavy scorers... and Simmons cannot shoot at all. The other teams would have backed off both of them and packed the paint.
