    Dear Mister Stone, so far I have held you in high esteem,
    At present I am perplexed and troubled by the in actions, so far by our team management

    1) You gave us a big splash wen we heard that you were going after a tall Center ?
    When will we find out who it is?
    2) When will we hear about the players who need to be trades or gotten rid of , Or even paid off by the owner/?
    The players I am concerned about are :-MARTIN, GORDON, GARUBA ( he only averaged 2 points per game last season) also NEWBA, and T. BURKE

    3) So far you have gotten rid of several players who could have been making a significant contribution to the Rockets as they climb away from the bottom rung .
    WOOD, SCHRODER, FERNANDO WALL and QUEEN.
    ( I cant understand about Queen?)

    I hope that there is still enough time for you and your staff to take care of upgrading the Roster before the start of the 2022 - 2023 season Y

    Tate, KJ, Sengun, Christopher, KPJ:

    those are the players Stone deserves credit for drafting, signing, or trading for above and beyond what other GMs would do in a similar situation, and that’s pretty good.

    wood is a wash because, while we did get a late 1st for him, his overall affect on the team was not positive.

    Wall and Dipo turned out to be mistakes, albeit not super costly ones.

    I don’t share the overly rosy, or overly harsh assessments of Stone. To me he’s a mixed bag, but more on the positive side. I’m continuing to be patient; trying to evaluate him fairly.

    I caught a couple of Fernando Wall shows back in the 90s - first album was fine but then they tried to go too pop and it ****ing sucked

    I'm very surprised you can't believe we let Queen go. He was really only good at being a 1st option and he'll never be that on the Rockets.

    Wood had to go. He didn't play defense. He didn't set picks or screens. He was going to be out for his to try to get paid after this contract expires. And he would have eaten up Jabari's minutes. Schroder doesn't have a future with the team and we have a glut at guard anyway. Wall didn't have a future with the team and didn't want to come off the bench. And while I was a little disappointed they didn't bring back Bruno Fernando too, I just can't be too upset about letting the 3rd or 4th big off the bench walk.

    Hi, this is Mister Stone,
    I am really sorry that you are unhappy with the free agency so far. I, and the team management will work tirelessly to rectify this.

    1) I can tell you right now that the big center that we will get is definitely big and a center. Wen we finalize the trade you'll hear about it.
    Then you will know.
    2) You will also hear about the players that we plan to get rid of , and/or paid off by Tallman Fritatta/.
    We are open to trading MARTIN and GORDON for the right pieces, but it's hard to find a deal for NEWBA as he doesn't have a lot of trade value/.

    3) All the players that we have gotten rid of would have directly taken minutes away from our future core and because young players need development we needed to make these moves.
    WOOD, SCHRODER and FERNANDO WALL also did not fit this team's timeline, and QUEEN would be better off getting minutes elsewhere.
    ( I hope you understand.)

    We are trying very hard to give our younger players more minutes, and whatever upgrades the Roster receives before the start of the 2022 - 2023 season Y probably won't be in the form of older players

    Yetti gets overexcited and blurts out such stuff from time to time. This post is his most unusual one! Lol!

    I definitely wonder how your Garuba take will age.
