    Wonder if the Rockets will pursue him for a low price.

    Not every available player would fit with the Rockets.

    Except Hedo would. He was a big part of that 09 team and would come cheap.

    I think Turk would fit with a role coming off the bench as a stretch 4 to spread the floor and also handle the Pointforward role from time to time.

    Wouldn't hurt, if he came cheap.

    Would also help a lot with bench scoring, which we are definitely in need of.

    I want Hedo to come here as much as I want to get AIDS. In fact, I think I almost want AIDS more so...

    He's a shot creator off the bench, he would definitely fit our needs. In fact he'd probably solidify our bench if we signed him.

    He's guaranteed $6mil this year ($12mil contract for the year) so I imagine his buyout is a substantial amount, so he might be willing to come for a reduced rate to try and win.

    I like the fit and the price. Need veterans off the bench and he's proven to play well off Dwight.

    Garcia, Beverley, Turkoglu, Asik and D-Mo is a nice bench unit.
