    40.4%
  3. They will add minor pieces and keep powder dry for later but not because of luxury tax

    Morey has always been high on Randle.
    The question is if Julius values winning.
    Youngins almost always opt for money and opportunity.

    Not sure.

    im guessing the Lakers didn’t come big for Capela.

    See the lineup as currently:

    1) CP3...2) Harden... ?X? ...3) Tucker...4) ?Capela? (Soon to be)
    ...5) E Gordon........6) GG.............7) Ryan Anderson/ 8) Nene
    ....9) Melton....................................................................10) Zhou Qi /11) Nanu / 12) V Edwards? 13) Gary Clark?

    Can the Rockets bring in player X......and sign Luc MaM? Luc could be the starter, but I’m hoping for a Tyreke
    Evans or trade for Chandler Wilson. Maybe James Nunnally as deep bench back up SF.

    Edited: scratch T Evans

    Maybe. If so then we could offer him a role here (assuming RA is gone or glued to bench) on one of the top 5 teams in the NBA, so that could be enticing.

    I think he'll get the $8+ MLE, but if he can be had for $5 that would be great for us.

    smh...

    I could not have possibly made it more obvious. "Above post edited" and "2 yard line".

    But hey, do what you gotta do.

    Randle is not a 3 point shooter. This line up would kill our spacing. If Randle comes here, he would have to come as a back up 5. No way he starts and kills our space.

    I’d be happy with a Evans signing to save face from loosing Ariza. I think he would actually be a great fit at starting 3 who can play the 1!!! Gives you a SF that can actually dribble a basketball!!

    If we could get rid of Anderson and sign Evans while keeping Capela, would be a GREAT start to next year.

    Why not? We can't just live by the 3, die by the 3. Look at how well it worked out for us against GSW.

    This is yet another good thing for re-signing Capela.

    Indiana would have been an ideal landing spot for Randle, now that's no longer an option.

    So who will sign Randle (and therefore withdraw themselves from the CC sweepstakes) Only about 4 teams left with over 10+ mill in cap space, Hawks, Kings, Bulls, and Philly.

    EDIT but it looks like this Evans to the Pacers is only a rumor currently.

    Scratch Evans.....we may be slightly screwed!!
    It will be a sight to see if Morey can improve the Roster.Capela isn’t the question as much as who will start at 3??? Gordon?James? A combination of LmmB/Green?? Very interesting situation

    I did what I said I'd do. I'll add that it's not at all obvious that your post was a "joke." If this was a dead part of the off-season, who cares? It's not. Most of us are looking for breaking news, which your "joke" pretended to be. You are assuming that everyone read what you say you were referring to. If the members here read every word posted in the GARM, they need to see a shrink. You could offer an apology, but that obviously hasn't occurred to you. Hope you enjoyed your "joke."
