    Of course. If there’s anyway to get MPJ next to Wood, the Rockets should make it happen.

    I'd give up a lot to land MPJ. A lot.

    Add Otto in the offseason and we can be the Law Firm of Porter, Porter and Porter

    You guys are right. Denver really wants DIPO because he has shown himself to be a super stud this season. They would jump on the opportunity to get DIPO and super long contract.

    I have never seen MPJ pass. MPJ passing footage is harder to find than videos of yeti’s. He can score but will he be the next Kevin Durant or Michael Beasley? His comments during last year’s playoffs were pretty telling that he has a pretty big ego and over inflated view of his game. He also doesn’t play a lick of defense. These are all mental shortcomings that can be fixed over time but he’s definitely a gamble.

    If Dipo wasn't playing so poorly, you could probably get Denver to talk about Tucker and Dipo with a pick for Porter and Gary Harris.

    A healthy Tucker and Oladipo would actually complement Jokic and Murray really well, and Gary Harris needs a change of scenery.

    I love passing, but also love making shots. This team that the Rockets are throwing out there is pretty damn boring. They brick a lot. I say, bring MPJ and let him throw up 25 shots for all I care.

    I really would love it if we could pry away MPJ from Denver, but I doubt that will happen, but if it does, by all means give them whatever the hell they want (within reason of course).

    He is available for sure. If he is moved or not depends on the offers that Denver receives. He does not mesh well with Jokic and that is what is frustrating for Denver. You have an MVP caliber player who makes everyone better and yet MPJ and him can’t play on the court together. We will suck until we land a superstar so I’m all for taking chances but I just want everyone to know buyer beware with him.

    I think Eric Gordon would be a really nice fit there, and he is under contract unlike Vic.

    I'm sure we'd have to take back Gary's corpse too, oh well.

    Any Porter thread that don’t include Otto Porter is not really a thread at all.

    Is he really available? I haven't seen an article. Would love a link if you have one.

    In the meantime, I have a proposal:

    trade.jpg

    Gets rid of the drama that is MPJ and Gary Harris isn't that good. You can get rid of his salary and get a look at how Oladipo can fit into that team that is trying to contend for a championship while also acquiring Tucker, another solid player that could help them out. Probably fantasy on my end, but worth a try.

    Harris would play well here. He needs more opportunities and there just isn’t many in Denver right now for him. He definitely will not make this team a winner but he will be able to show other teams that he is a good asset and he will be $20million expiring contract next year.

    @ElPigto there are no direct quotes but read up on MPJ and the Nuggets and you can read between the lines. Also you have to remember this is a business, in business everything is for sale at the right price. Denver will weigh the pros and cons of a MPJ offer but in the back of their minds will be the fact that they will be $20+ million over the cap line and moving Gary Harris and MPJ for let’s say PJ and HoláDepot and then letting them walk as well as Millsap at the end of the year should free up close to max money for a free agent.

    Send Harris to Boston for a FRP. Send that pick to Denver, send Portland’s pick to Denver. Then it becomes somewhat realistic I think.

    Rockets get MPJ.

    Denver gets Oladipo, Tucker, 2FRP

    Boston gets Harris.

    I dig that as well. That would be a solid package for MPJ. Thank goodness that Boston has that large TPE.
