    Does this give them room for Aldridge?

    Twins are better off together. Split apart again.

    If he goes to the Suns... he's not actually about winning or he isn't very smart about what it takes to win.

    If he moves to Suns rather Spurs i can see this as a big win for Rockets, as if he went to Spurs they would be very very hard to beat.

    Exactly. Another Portland with less talent.

    Both Phoenix and San Antonio are making the same mistake the Rockets made last year. They shouldn't trade players without first getting a firm commitment from LMA. Hope Phoenix got it before making this trade. That's why I think it's so quite on the Rockets' side. They don't want to make the same mistake.

    Similar team to what he had in Portland.
    Knight would be a less talented Lilliard
    chandler = lopez
    Tucker = Wes Matthews

    Why would he want to do this ? I don't see him going there.

    Maybe Detroit has better lawyers than Phoenix, hence Marcus wanted this trade.

    I just want Jordan to sign with either LA team to seal Dallas ' fate. No way Aldridge would go to Dallas if Jordan wasn't there. As long as they don't touch our FA's I'm happy.
