  2. It's officially NBA Draft Week! Dave Hardisty and David Weiner discuss the options before the Houston Rockets as they approach the June 26th NBA Draft, holding the #3 pick and the #44 pick. Is it really down to Donovan Clingan and Reed Sheppard? The pair also discuss trade-down possibilities and whether Devin Carter could be intriguing to Ime Udoka. And are the Rockets a darkhorse for a Paul George trade?

Should we take a look at Ben Gordon?

    We need to work on our front court more than our back court.

    Man, when I saw this thread I got worried Thornton may have died or something.

    What a relief it was based on a bad idea and not some sort of catastrophic tragedy.

    no one wants an electric scorer and instant offense off the bench? this dude can go off for 40 on any given night.

    I tend to agree man (although when was the last time he scored 40 lol). I think you can never have enough shooters.

    You're not good with your "big name hype" approach.

    Gordon has NOT been "that" guy for a while now. Ever since he left Chicago. But his overall deficiencies now (bad passing/playmaking, defense) make it where he is not a contributing player. Gordon has always been empty scoring. He'll score 40, 20 next game, but he's given up 75 points.

    I dont want to say he's washed up. But he's looking more like a China league star player than a useful player.

    we don't need a player who can't pass the ball.
