    This and the fact that this team is in a WIN NOW mode. You don't fork over $160 million to Chris Paul over the next 4 years in hopes to build for a future. The time to strike for the Rockets is now.

    I can't believe I'm letting a BS Zach Lowe article detract me from The Otto Porter Movement.....

    Anyone who thinks they couldn't beat GS with Hardhead, Paul and Kawhi, should really consider getting off the Warriors nuts.

    Tbh, EG to me is a high quality player

    Capela and EG and picks to me is better then what Lakers are offering and they stick it to the Lakers by doing so and what’s worse him joining Lebron or us

    In my 3 way trade, the Rockets would still have Capela and PJ Tucker

    Capela
    Tucker
    Kawhi
    Harden
    Paul

    If that lineup can't beat the Warriors, toe-to-toe, 100% healthy on both ends....then I don't know what will.

    The perfect scenario would be to make this deal for Kawhi, then pick up the phone and snatch Dwight from Washington's grasp. Then just sit back and watch the confetti fall.

    He wasn't even bringing up dark horse candidates. It was more like a bunch of nearly impossible what if scenarios. Nothing to see here.

    Cool! Brandon Paul is a good young player. Plus, it's good to see CP3 playing with his son.

    It is a big distraction.

    I love it but the only way they get to keep Capela is for Morey to pull a gun on Pop during negotiations.

    Lol. Pop would rather trade Kawhi to his division rival than the Lakers...for less of a package?

    BAHAHAHA

    PG:Chris Paul/Michael Carter Williams
    SG:James Harden/RJ Hunter
    SF:Kawhi Leonard/Luc Mbah a Moute/Gerald Green
    PF:Carmelo Anthony/PJ Tucker/Michael Beasley
    C:Greg Monroe or Brook Lopez/Zhou Qi

    This roster could beat the Warriors!!!!

    This offseason has truly broken Clutchfans' collective brains.

    I have seen more dumb trade ideas and more mindless rationalizing than ever before.

    This would be a terrible trade for the Rockets if it were even remotely possible. Kawhi might be one and done and you give San Antonio another talented center that Pop could mold into a perennial all-star. No thank you. Capela should be borderline untouchable, because he is the best fit for MDA's system and the dude has unlimited potential at such a young age. I will be extremely disappointed if they let Capela go to another team.
