    Would love to get Mandry back, but I think someone will sign him for more. Also, if they brought in Landry, what would that mean for the future of Jones & D-Mo next year? My guess is the front office really wants to see what these guys can do next year before moving them.

    More than likely its going to be Corey Brewer Im almost certain. Nobody in the NBA runs the court like Brewer... the guy is a cheetah out there, and gets easy buckets on the outlet pass better than anyone in the NBA just by sheer quickness and hustle.

    The only question is whether or not the Rockets will keep that style of play next year with Dwight now on board? If they still want to play uptempo Brewer is the guy they want hands down. Fits like a glove.

    Brewer will require more than the room exception most likely. Denver will try to keep him especially after losing iggy

    Corey Brewer is the perfect guy man....this guy attacks the basketball relentlessly. He doesn't just take jump shot, he drive and attack and get to the line too. This is the PERFECT FIT if we can get him.

    If Brewer is smart he takes our offer and agrees to play for less money! We have 15 players signed right?:

    Lin, Beverley, Canaan, Harden, Anderson, Garcia, Parsons, Casspi, D-Mo, TJ, Covington, Olbrecht, Asik, Smith, Howard

    Who is the best defensive 2 guard?
    ( seem like we could use someone to slow down the opposing 2 when Harden rests)

    Lol... no thanks.

    Artest turned his back on us when we needed him the most. And now he comes crawling back? I hope Utah claims him off the amnesty waivers. That would be hilarious.

    I don't see Artest being a "fit" on this Rockets team.

    Having Howard/Harden in the Rockets back pocket....ah, what a luxury to now be able to selectively "cherry pick" role players to fill out the roster.

    Morey's having fun now! ;)

    Hell no, Artest has mocked us on several occassions. Also with the name change, do not want!

    How did he do that? The Rockets didn't offer him a contract and instead offered a contract to Trevor Ariza.

    I would love to have Anthony Morrow and Corey Brewer on this team for the veteran minimum of course.
