    We didn't give up Jones or Capela.. we didn't give up Dekker or Harrell... we gave up one protected late first while getting a unprotected early 2nd in return...PLUS we got them to eat Dorsey's contract...

    Insane.

    plot twist part 2: Lawson's contract gets voided. Extra cap space for Durant chase next year.

    Rockets send 2016 protected first to Denver. Probably lottery protected.

    I was absolutely positive it would cost Terrence Jones.

    Stunned...absolutely stunned.

    This team is going to win 60+.

    why?

    He would likely just lose his license. Maybe that would get him to hire a full time driver.

    FYI - PJ Tucker got a 3 game suspension for his DUI. Greg Monroe 2 games.

    There's no way he gets even a 25 game suspension. The standard is 2-3 games for a DUI conviction. There's no way a 2nd would be that severe.

    Assuming he is legally able to play . I want him to come off the bench . We set the tone with defense . The offense and pace comes up when our opponents are broken from not being able to get points.

    It's funny that he will be able to recreate most of those highlights to Faried now to Harrell!

    I know that he will be suspended for a few games but I don't expect him to miss more than 2 months. We should be able to hold down the fort until he gets back. He definitely has to go to rehab for 30 days but beyond that I don't think he is getting any jail time or anything. I am kinda confused as to who else we are trying to bring in. I would love to see Allan Williams but I have heard rumors that we were looking to bring in Chuck Hayes and then of course bringing Terry back. I guess with the trade of Johnson and Prigioni and the suspension that is still looming that Terry has to be the guy unless we can somehow bring in Nate Robinson or something.

    This is a great trade. I was starting to doubt Morey. It has instantly become a good offseason. Sucks about smoove but those shots are better allocated to DMO and Ty.

    Seriously? He checked into rehab, didn't he? He'll still get a suspension even after that? It better not be for too long.
