    Someone give Rusty Hardin's number to Lawson. He'll do his voodoo, and California will somehow end up owing reparations to Lawson and Adam Silver will find himself suspended for the first 20 games of the season before he realizes what happened.

    If I had to guess I would assume LA wouldn't include a first round pick. I mean I don't see how you can really get worse from a player stand point then our offer lol

    Rockets gave up almost nothing to get Lawson. Another high way robbery for DM!

    props to les for making the deal and confirming that we will almost assuredly pay the LT this season.

    when was the last time he paid the LT!?

    The best part of it all is that the Rockets opened up several roster spots by cutting loose some scrubs to make room for guys like Allen Williams, Harrell, Capella, and Dekker.

    LOLOLOL

    Kinda feel bad for them.

    They sold so low and did so so early. Morey pounced.

    I understand he has his issues but damn!

    From this deal, Nugget fans can look forward to the first round pick and maybe Johnson.

    My guess? Nick Young (for salary reasons), Earl Clarkson, and a few fliers. LA probably didn't want to give up a 1st rounder, and for all we know Denver might be high on Johnson or something.

    For the record, I don't know why LA would trade for Lawson if they already drafted D'Angelo Russell. Unless they planned to flip him for Cousins or something, in which case I could see Hibbert going to Denver straight up.

    Yeah, and Capela and Howard will likely never be on the court together, and both provide enough of an advantage defensively to (kind of) make up for their lack of FT shooting.
