    Why do we trade for Jalen Smith when he's a FG this summer?

    It wouldn't hurt to bring him in and evaluate what kind of potential he has away from playing with Chris Paul. The kid has underwhelmed so far but the talent is there. If he plays well for the remainder of the season it's not a bad investment to give him a reasonable contract. if he sucks then we just cut our losses.

    Still ... a bit redundant with Garuba and KJ, no?

    We need size, length, rim protection, and outside shooting from any future Big additions to best complement our current squad of brick-laying midgets

    KJ was in the trade
    Garuba isn't getting minutes
    Precious Achiuwa can actually defend the 5 unlike Wood

    the team that has him has the same limitations for resigning that the Suns have. Thus, trade for him and he produces at all? You’re ‘automatically’ outbid.

    close IMO: EGo/Tate - - Dragic/Boucher FRP & SRP. Deal with Heat, Rox trade for GD and buy him out to sign in South Beach then: Nwaba for fillers & FRP.

    I am a big EGO fan, but I wonder how much of his success this year is a result of him not playing much defense?

    Non homers can live with it, its a question of whether EG can take it. How long can he take a secondary even tertiary role to players he can outplay... and lose games on the regular. For his sake, we hope he gets to a winning team. Or of we really love him so much, just buy him out so he can choose his landing spot.

    Teams I would like to see Eric Gordon go to so he could contend for a title: Phoenix, Philly, Chicago, Memphis, (maybe) Golden State

    Other teams that could be a good assets match for the Rockets: Cleveland, New York, Dallas, Charlotte, Boston, Atlanta

    Teams that would be perfect for Gordon but bad match for the Rockets: Brooklyn, Milwaukee, Miami, LA Clippers, LA Lakers, Utah, Denver

    Maybe we trade for him and tell him to rent a room at John Wall's place because he's going to be hanging out with him the rest of the season.

    Sounds like Gordon getting traded is inevitable. Part of me don't want to see him help other teams; especially certain teams that I don't like; Jazz, Warriors, Mavs or Lakers.

    I think he likes Houston, but the losing is probably harder to take. It is what it is.

    what solid vet, rotational on any team, wants to be stuck, yes stuck, on a team rebuilding with teenagers? Knot a nock on EGo, knot a nock on Rox, just what it is.
