  2. It's officially NBA Draft Week! Dave Hardisty and David Weiner discuss the options before the Houston Rockets as they approach the June 26th NBA Draft, holding the #3 pick and the #44 pick. Is it really down to Donovan Clingan and Reed Sheppard? The pair also discuss trade-down possibilities and whether Devin Carter could be intriguing to Ime Udoka. And are the Rockets a darkhorse for a Paul George trade?

what is the highest pick we could get for jalen in this draft

    The projection is hilarious. The Rockets were already trying to dump Jalen last season, but no one wanted him. This is your last stand....the last season Jalen is under contract before the team moves on, enjoy the summer because the lies and excuses you guys have been pushing for 3 years won't keep the draft bust on the roster for much longer.

    BTW, Evan Mobley is expected to get a max contract this summer....

    Cade Cunningham is expected to get a max extension this summer.....

    Scottie Barnes is expected to get a max extension this summer....

    Jalen Green is unlikely to have ANY extension offer.

    Funny how that is.

    At this stage, the question Stone should be asking is "what can I get for Green + 3rd pick as the starting basis for a major trade".

    However, Washington at #2 and Charlotte at #6 are possibilities for a Green centered trade.

    He had just signed a $170M max extension prior to this ACL injury occurring that you posted. Do you really think the team had any other option than to hope he made a comeback? Teams do not come knocking on your door when you've given someone a max extension and they suffer a major injury. This is a ridiculous narrative you are pushing for, it does not apply to a player who would have positive value in the league. Not a relevant comparison being made.

    this is not funny

    :(

    I want a superstar, so hopefully we can package Jalen and #3 for someone who will make an impact on Game 1 this season.

    I'd take this in a hearbeat as a Rockets fan, not sure why Detroit does that though?

    Watch our offense plummet to a new level if this trade happens.

    That would be very interesting, what if it was Jaden Ivey instead of Ausar?

    Ivey has been a big disappointment.

    It is Detroit....I think he still has major value and upside as an attacking PG.

    i would trade 5 down to 11 or above and take Edey if the pistons would actually give us 5

    charlotte may give us 6 for him..dunno

    or portland at 7 and some cap relief for the blazers

    throw in tate with jalen for brogdon and 7


    i still think we should be working on jalen trades regardless of who we take at 3.

    kenard and #9 would work as well if the grizz want him.

    11 and ball for jalen and tate would also be ok with me
