    Lol the team harden goes to getting bounced or maybe making the playoffs doesn’t matter. He’s a diva that screwed this org, it’s not a question of whether to rebuild it’s when. The prudent thing would be to trade him to a dumpster team for lotto picks

    We have our MLE to work with and can package EG and House for something substantive

    That is not a what a professional should think about.

    This league has been a joke with players dictating what they want.

    WB is a joke in the playoffs, if Harden is so loyal to Brodie, then good luck!

    He just ain't that good to put your head on the line for him.

    Then we shouldn’t listen to him on picking the next coach.

    We should hire Silas and when the time comes trade James.

    If the Rockets add Silas or JVG and find a way to get Christian Wood added to this core, they will be a true contender. I have no doubts.

    The smart thing would be to move him now for peak value, but Tilman is in control here, Morey is gone.

    We should trade Harden now, try to trade WB as well if we can, but no rush on moving him his value is already terrible.

    What I expect is to stand pat, maybe use MLE, maybe flip try to flip Gordon for some cap savings or a big. Until Harden has 1 year left and demands out.

    What trades do you see that will put us in the nba finals? Just using that as a bar since he's taken the team to the conference finals a couple times.

    Tilman is so arrogant that he thinks he can keep James happy and compete for a title.

    That'd be a disaster. Forcing him to go to some dumpster team. No one will want to play for Tillman.
    You pretty much have to trade him to a contender or make a contender with him. I'd only see him being happy going to Phoenix to team up with Booker and Ayton with trash and picks in return for us. That's about the only current dumpster he'd give the okay to. Outside of that, GS, or Philly would be most likely.

    Trust me, with the Reputation Tilly has already built it doesn’t matter. His HC and GM (who is basically the identity of this team) quit in the span of a month.

    Great. Trade them both. Start rebuilding. Lucas is excellent to develop new players.

    Yes trade harden to a real team. Let tilmen have fun pinching pennies with his no draft pick, no players, bottom feeder rockets

    For the fate of our Rockets future...maybe we hope Harden demands it. WB and Harden gone. Lose fans. No playoffs. TIlly keeps losing money and is forced to sell the team. That guys got to go. I can't imagine the next 30 or so years i've got left on this earth being spent rooting for cheap, asshole Fertita and his offspring.
