    This is sad. It was non-serious and silly. I am sorry that is offensive to you.

    If he wants the tax payer MLE or the minimum, sure.

    I'll admit, it's weird what's happening. We don't seem to be in on ANYONE that is getting real money and the contract we let Ariza leave for is not crazy.

    It makes me believe they have moves they are working on.

    Thank you. That's all I wanted. I read very fast, but I don't catch everything. I'm sorry if it seems I overreacted, but while I enjoy a joke as much as the next guy, this is a very intense time of the year. Maybe we need to cut back on some of that stuff in the GARM until things slow down. If @Clutch sees this, blow it off, big guy. :cool:

    They should try a sign and trade with capells snd gasol. They want to get younger, he wants to get paid, snd we're trying to win a title within the next 3yrs.

    Anyone hearing anything on we send Anderson and a 1st to Bulls, Hornets unload salary and send us Batum (3 yrs-$70mil)? I like that deal if true.

    Well if the Boogie signing stands, perhaps "basketball reasons" will happen, then the price for Capela dropped.

    I haven't followed him since he left Portland. How good is he now? Also where did you get this rumor?

    What's our best case outlandish scenario ?

    Resign Clint and Luc .

    Swap Ryan for bazemore.

    Sign a motivated and mature/focused Melo and Dwight for vet min .

    I'd roll with that **** .

    That being said , it's got a smaller chance of happening than me getting an orgy with the hottest World Cup women .

    Chris / Eric
    James / Eric/ baze
    Luc / melo/ baze
    Pj / melo
    Clint / Dwight

    The chance that Dwight and melo both gain 30 iq/ maturity points is pretty low outside of them signing with us for vet min

    Vince Carter is the last chance now. He has outlasted his younger own cousin, TMac

    From a friend of mine. Batum would fit perfectly in this system. He can score and play make from the wing.

    not resigning Ariza for 1 year 15 million looks like an obvious "dont want to pay more tax" move. Sure 15$ million for Ariza is an overpay, but it is for 1 year. It doesn't negatively affect the Rockets ability to sign players this year or in the future, since the rockets are already over the cap AND Ariza's contract will be finished next year.

    by not resigning Ariza, the Rockets basically let go of the team's best perimeter defender and a good role player, while hoping PjTucker, green, and whoever they sign for the mle or vet minimum can replace his contribution.

    No he ****ing can't. He's a three and d guy that can't shoot the three. 33 ****ing percent, his ball handling is atrocious. He's a power forward playing small forward and if he's on this roster you will hate him.
