    We should be able to pry him away Denver is in win now mode and need vets.

    The rockets on the other hand need to a young star we can build around for the future and put ourselves in position to win a championship. Could Bol Bol be that piece? Possibly or pair him with another good young star.

    Can he defend on the perimeter? That seems to be a requirement.

    You forgot to mention that Denver wants Eric Gordon. Everyone wants Eric Gordon the shooting gawd.

    Rockets will be able to restock their team so easily by dangling his bargain contract.

    Denver is not trading Bol Bol. They feel they got a steal...on the cheap. They are ESPECIALLY not trading him to help the Rockets.

    that is how i feel...they were scared of us when we had capela, so why would they trade with us when they could trade him to a team that wouldn't hurt them? also, we're cheap, so who would they want from us that matched salary? seems like they' wouldn't want anything we would offer

    Why is Denver in win-now mode? Jokic is 25 and locked up until 2023. Murray is 23 and locked up until 2022. They have time to tinker with their roster and fit pieces around those 2.

    It's absolutely wrong timing to trade Bol, MPJ or anyone else they think has value.

    Also, they're going to have cap space (I think) since Millsap's huge contract expires after this postseason run is done.

    Denver doesn't have to make any win-now moves.

    Re-Sign and Play Bruno.

    Sign Bobby Portis.

    try to trade for Mitchell Robinson.

    All three are more realistic options

    Depends on who we give up. Our deep bench guys seem to only serve as injury contingency and garbage time.

    Even if Bol is here for two seasons, trades (Bol or someone else) is worth considering. Very few teams have the exact same roster for consecutive years.

    GSW is back next season. Bubble opportunity is slipping away. Some shake up is needed.

    Bolbol is an SF not a center. Thats what people missed and thats why he dropped IMO. He sucks as a traditional big man but his thin frame is ok as a forward.

    Bol Bol would make a great benchmarker... Those guys were so valuable in the 90s.... So versatile with setting picks, throwing the ball in, and participating in pranks...
