    Wow. A year ago, the Rockets turned what seemed like the fourth worst contract in the NBA into the second worst. Now they've turned it into the worst contract in the entire league. Good times.

    If Wall is healthy this can really work.

    EVERYONE GET IN HERE!

    Don’t know how I feel about it. Definitely feel like WB has a higher upside in terms of season to season play. If we do have to trade harden for Simmons I definitely don’t like the fit.

    Whoa. I'm leaning towards liking this trade, but need to think it over a bit more.

    I am definitely glad that Westbrook is gone.

    Wall is a better fit next to Harden...much smarter, and just a better facilitator/decision maker while not commanding 20+ shots and extremely high usage

    Wall is also the better defender

    I hope the pick is unprotected, otherwise what's the point. Also, everyone better start praying Wall stays healthy.

    Like, we trying to get worse?

    Chris Paul —> Westbrook —> Wall, coming off Achilles, hasn’t played in 2 years

    Maybe it’ll work?
