    Just going over the LT for the last 3 yrs could have solved these problems.

    We need some defense in the front court. Someone like Shaq Harrison would be a good option for replacing the Rivers role.

    Your #4 guard should be on a minimum deal, so I’m ok missing out on the guys that have signed so far.

    Good list. I've always been a fan of Ilyasova. He's a very solid vet with super fundamentals. Although he's older now, he'll still knock down the 3, rebound and be a solid locker room guy. E'T's game has grown on me over the years and he's a plus as your 9th or 10th guy on the bench.

    I like both of these guys as vet mins off the bench especially Illyasova. Would be a solid fit with his shooting and rebounding ability. Defense seems decent enough still but not sure we would be able to switch much with him on there?

    Not sure what our defense will look like next year, but hopefully it takes into account the talent and capabilities we'll have on our team.

    Vet minimum you sign Taj Gibson then you trade Gordon and fillers for a starting caliber SF

    I wouldn’t mind damyean Dotson coming home if we get rid of Gordon...more shooting off the bench never hurts, so also broekhoff

    For sure though go after bolden bender Or dedmon


    Mainly though since in my mind harden is going no matter what we do, I want younger players that can still grow


    Edit—-didn’t think about bringing hartenstein back, no way he’d accept that would he?

    Jonah Bolden is still my choice. Right size, skills, mindless & price. He needs a D. House deal & playing time. If given more than a minimum so he can be deal filler going forward.

    I was waiting on someone to bring him up. Why is this guy still available? What is making teams hesitant to sign this guy?

    Looks like nobody wants Eric Gordon. Morey extension was basicly to keep him. Teams look at him with his season before as downgrading. Only way rockets get fair value is he plays good, and then you trade him at deadline. Look at Per lol

    Hes Rank #82 that sad, hes highly overpaid.
