    You don't have to take a player back if the other team has the cap room to absorb the contract

    I wonder if either of those options is too late to draft the key international prospects currently projected to go in the teens? If so, could we see DM trade back from that on draft night, or out of the draft altogether?

    Also, once the trade is made, are the Rockets then able to trade their 2014 pick if necessary? Say DM has fallen in love with someone in the top 5 or 8 - albeit no rumors of that and doesn't seem very likely - and is willing to move someone (like Lin) and a pick to move up. No tlikely, just pointing it out.

    I believe that is known in the industry as a deal breaker.

    FWIW

    Cleveland is under the cap, but Chicago is definitely over the cap. So by my math, we'd have to take a player back from Chicago (unless they have a trade exception) but not from Cleveland.

    I'm not expert, though.

    btw: there is another thread in the Dish, which might need this posted by you, too. That's makes three threads needing you to monitor for the same trade.

    T-Rob is going to be a beast if he gets traded to the Cavs.

    The Houston Rockets have been openly shopping forward Thomas Robinson in an effort to clear more cap space for a run at Dwight Howard and have been confident that they will shed Robinson's contract by Thursday night.

    Houston is looking to move Robinson to a team that can absorb his salary (either because it is under the cap or possesses the requisite trade exception) and get back a first-round pick in return. And two teams appear to have emerged as serious suitors: Cleveland and Chicago. Sources close to the situation say both teams would be willing to give up a first-round pick in this draft to land Robinson, who went No. 5 overall in the 2012 draft.

    The Cavs, though, have also been linked to a potential trade with Dallas for Shawn Marion and the 13th pick that could cost them the second of their two first-round picks, No. 19 overall. They've also made an unsuccessful run at Minnesota's Kevin Love and continue to send signals that they want to make a "big" trade this week. But if Cleveland doesn't need No. 19 for one of those transactions, look for them to try to acquire Robinson from the Rockets.

    Sources say that the Bulls, meanwhile, also covet Robinson and are offering the 20th pick. Chicago doesn't have cap space to absorb Robinson's contract but does possess a trade exception that Robinson could slide into.

    Who would the Rockets take if they meet their objective to shed Robinson for a late first-rounder? It's virtually guaranteed to be an international player that they can stash overseas and thus keep unwanted additional salary off of their books. Russia's Sergey Karasev, Greece's Giannis Antetokounmpo, Brazil's Lucas Nogueira, Germany's Dennis Schroeder and France's Rudy Gobert are all known targets for the Rockets.

    I'd be satisfied with their 20th pick, trade exeption for TRob. If we could get a second round pick with it, that would be gravy.

    No one is gonna wanna touch Royce White. :mad:

    Is there anyway we can trade trob for the trade exception and the rights to mirotic? Thats better than the 20th pick easy.

    Someone will take White, but it will be closer to the trade deadline. He will have a team option so any team will view him as an expiring contract.

    Draft rights and draft picks don't hit the cap at all, which is what makes them so easy to trade.
