    Listen most players drink alcohol when they step out to clubs. He obviously seems like the type that is out n about (Harden as well) - He just made dumb decisions for driving. He sounded completely fine on the TMZ video b4 his arrest.

    He just has to make better decisions and get ppl to drive him. I do not think the alcohol thing is a big issue. The guy has this attitude on the court. He doesn't like to lose. I love that.

    Funny thing that they were trying to trade him to the Kings for their first rounder earlier

    I just imagine harden having to play 30-35 min a game because a lawson / bev combo would be lethal in its own right

    any chance we could convince lawson to come off the bench? feel like that would work better in terms of fit, and allow the 2nd unit to really really run.

    Doesn't matter is Lawson starts or not.... Now in every single competitive game you will have a legitimate playmaker on the court.... When the game is close and Harden needs a few minutes, Lawson stays in and Beverley comes in.... When Lawson needs a few minutes, Harden stays in and Beverley replaces Lawson.... Ariza needs a few? Run Brewer and Lawson and Jones and Capela.

    The club still has weaknesses, and we don't know if Lawson stays clean.... But this was an excellent buy low opportunity. Feigen was lying out his mouth when he said Lawson isn't a good fit... He is nearly a perfect fit offensively, he can run and penetrate, doesn't turn the ball over and is a very good open shooter. Defensively he was pretty bad last year and he is small, but in the past he has been adequate and has done well against smallish guys like Parker, Paul and even Curry.

    Does this mean we are out of the KD sweepstakes next year?

    Jones is still with us. Wood is partially guaranteed, and likely will be waived.
    Terrence is much better than Wood. I am sorry you mentioned Jones, and I didn't read that.

    First of all I truly hope Woj is correct. What worries me is that
    I tried running this trade through ESPN's trade machine. It failed due to the Rockets receiving mover than 125% back in salaries plus $100K:

    http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=q2bztgr

    We're only trading out $8.39M in salaries, and receiving $12.40 back.
    What's the story here cap experts? Is this trade possible as currently structured?

    The following tweet also worries be a bit on the final structure of this deal:

    Bobby Marks ‏@BobbyMarks42 29m29 minutes ago
    Not saying he is in the deal but Sam Dekker is eligible to be traded. Has not signed his rookie contract yet.
