    Lance is a headcase and Deng went for $10M/yr and was worse than Ariza last season

    Rockets want three point shooting and defense next to Harden. Ariza may not be as good defensively, but he is a better 3 point shooter than these two.

    Also, Ariza dribbles basketballs, not his girlfriend's head.

    Ariza is solid, and lance probably wanted to start, which he couldn't do because Harden

    Lance said that he would have came here if we kept parsons. So i guess that means he has no interest in us anymore

    I think ESPN said he would have gone to DALLAS if we matched Parsons.

    Hmm...Dallas would have been interesting with him instead of Parsons.

    After the whole Royce White mess, I don't blame the Rockets for staying away from oddball characters.

    Well, Morey sure doesn't seems to be a big Lance fan.

    After Bosh decided on going back to MIA, Houston could have:

    1) kept Parsons, and squeezed both Ariza and Lance into their cap space;
    2) kept Parsons, signed Lance but not Ariza;
    3) let Parsons go, signed Lance and Ariza
    4) let Parsons go, signed Lance but not Ariza.

    Maybe Lance just prefers the role he'd have in Charlotte or likes Michael Jordan more than he does Les Alexander or whatever, but there was never any report of the Rockets even glancing at Lance while the team's interest in other significant FAs (Melo, Bosh, Deng, Ariza) was all over the news.

    Stephenson like World Peace can play the ball. They are abnormal sometimes, but at this price, he is one this team really need.
