    Lawson Trade

    Agreed. We probably had this lined up but most likely TJones was involved. After Lawson's second DUI, we took Jones off the table and reduced our offer. This also explains why we let Josh Smith go so easily since he signed with the Clippers right after Lawson's DUI.

    07 - 09 - 2015. The day I got over games 1&2 of the 2015 WCF. So it was written.

    Morey wins. Trolls get trolled (by what we gave up). Haters get dominated. We have the most opportunistic GM in professional sports. Done. Move on. #DebateOver

    By trading Dorsey and losing Smith, in one week, we went from having 4 guys teams can hack to 2. I like it.

    Yes, his DUIs are bad. Yes, I suggested he be suspended after the one in January.

    ...and he probably will be suspended.

    But someone (hopefully they were being sarcastic) said somewhere between 25-50 games.

    Hah! No way. A few games.

    Hopefully he gets the help he needs (rehab, John Lucas, whom/whatever) and gets his life straightened out.

    You need to get the sand out of your vagina over Josh Smith leaving.

    Bang! Great trade considering how little we had to give up. It's a risk I know, but just about any trade is. Welcome to H-Town!

    the only thing that could happen that would make my head explode now is to trade for dirk at the trade deadline.

    Un-****ing-real...

    I just can't believe we got Ty Lawson for basically nothing. Western Conference is going to be ridiculous this season.

    This. JR Smith got 7 games when he literally killed a guy.

    So you think this trade was discussed with Smith and Morey gave him the option of staying or finding something better? This would make sense if it happened that way but having Smith would have made us SUPER stacked.

    The Lakes are hungrier for talent than us. They likely kept talents like Randle out of this.
