    Cousins deciding on Houston is a likely sign that Wall is on his way as well. Cousins could have signed with other legitimate contenders, but the theme of today’s NBA is the buddy system.

    Would be a huge swing, hit or miss from the front office to rely on both cousins and wall with their injury history.
    Either way, it will be fun to see!

    Gotta respect the new GM for his work so far.

    I'm so glad you made this thread. It hasn't been discussed in the other Boogie threads. Thanks for your contribution.

    “Guy paid millions to run billion dollar business says no fraud whatsoever”
    -Headline about Bernie Madoff, probably

    I hope the trade doesn’t happen, but a GM denying everything that hurts his bargaining power is par for the course.

    Should we be expecting a Houston Chronicle headline soon?

    (Chron) Harden was working out with John Wall this offseason

    Or could be because he's trying to resurrect a career so he has gone to a good team with no competition at his position.

    It sounds like Harden may be staying. If that’s the case, they likely aren’t moving Russ.

    He signed a 1 year deal, on a team that had NO centers....he knows he can prove himself and earn a bigger contract.

    This was pure biz on his part.

    To the extent there is any fire behind the smoke... then if it gets Wall wanting a trade to HOU and therefor requesting as such with the Wizards and being a malcontent and therefor convincing them to part with more assets... that’d be nice.

    wall for Russ doesn’t work for me straight up because Walls likely to play like 45 games.

    Please stop posting about Wall. Seriously Russ is on another level and healthier than wall. Quit it
