    One other problem we have is lack of size and inside scoring.

    And how do you propose that with a 5 million taxpayer mid level exception?

    How about you think about something before you post it

    Another problem we have is lack of available cap space.

    .
    Julius Randall can put it on the floor and create for himself. Has range out to the 3 line offers the same in terms of rebounding and defense and can hit his free throws. If I could i would swap Capela and Randle in a heartbeat. If James turned Clint Capela into an NBA player with virtually no offensive game imagine what he could do for Randle!

    He doesn’t offer the same towards defense and rebounding based on the advanced numbers. You’re trading defense for more offense. I’ve never seen Randle run a lot of PNR that our system relies on.

    I still have Capela over Randle along with advanced numbers. Just my opinion.

    Can people please just educate themselves on our cap situation? It doesn’t take much to realize that Julius Randle to HOU would never happen...

    Lol no im not angry. Just tired of seeing people post about impossible nonsense snd not understanding how basic contracts or salary cap work.

    I see him signing for a contract the rockets cant offer.
    Next.
