    I'm sick as a dog today...fever and dizzy.( pardon any errors)

    but:

    Did hear the Rockets remain in contact (like many, many other teams) (That Til pic is cool, but it's rare for owners to be so direct about a potential player in a trade. But, if so, get it done...right?

    -Jimmy is first prize, but with another team involved (possibly), the "prize" is subjective.
    -One ear said it doesn't feel desperate for Rockets...(in comparison to the hardcore recruit of D12 long ago)
    -Ear: Third team is better so Rockets don't lose more of the core; Tucker loss would be devastating to to James and team. Says he's still hands off...
    -Miami is noisy.

    That's all I've got. Again, my "ears" in Minny are minimal. Cyber has this; it's his thread.


    PS...some of you forget how important EGo was for us, especially in the WCF. Without his 3s in two consecutive games, that series may have been awful. Also, EGo is happy here...that's important for a player. He isn't a "FreeBird" or the dysfunctional brat in KJ MCDonothings.

    I see that this has been posted several times already. My bad. I don't believe anything until it is official.

    Seems like something is happening based on Cyber’s posts last night and Iko’s tweets. It “feels” like something is going to get done soon, but I’m going to wait for a WOJ/Shams bomb before I get too excited.

    Didn’t he also mention Ariza looking at PHX 1st too? I can’t remember, but I think it was him.

    From my ears, NO.

    There is a scenario of us getting Jim

    There is another where we get parts to build depth. (My preference)

    Sounds as though Morey will not give up everything for one year....but Morey is elusive...so...

    Also, Kings have dangled Kosta at us for a bit...If they get involved, he'll be a Rocket. (nothing solid there though)
