    CheatSheet said Wicky Wubio may be available.

    I can't wait to see Wicky play off James Hawden. Wicky = championship. Get 'r done Mooreez!

    As for Zach, only (career) 26% from 3. Not the stretch four Mooree or Kevin is looking for.

    This is the last piece to the puzzle, i would go all in sending.....

    T.Jones, KJ, and 1st round pick.

    or whatever it takes.

    To answer the question, yes. Randolph can still play.

    Randolph would be a great all-in move for this year. He will fall off massively over the next year or so, it'd be risky.

    Randolph would help this team. Don't want to give up Motiejunas, though.

    Does not put us over the top on the WC, much less the Finals. Just say no.

    it would be suicide for Memphis to trade Zach to the Rox

    What are you going to give up to get "Zack the Leggo Maniac"?

    Why would Memphis trade him to us in the first place?

    Depends on who you give up.

    If the Rockets cannot win the West with Harden/Howard/Lawson/Randolph; then they need to just fold up shop.

    Mmmmm, yeah, they can't win the West with HHL and a 34-year old PF who doesn't play good D, doesn't run the floor, and who takes up a lot of possessions facing up from 17 feet, thereby clogging the floor for us. So, ummmm, yeah. We can't win the West with HHL and him.

    Then what do you suggest? Nobody better is walking through that door and we need a PF pretty badly.

    Our championship window is not that large (as of right now)

    That being said, you don't trade the farm but if they would take something reasonable ... Jones, 1st, KJ... (filler to make the money work) you do it.

    basically if they get zbo they are admitting that a duo of jones/dmo can't do it. they also are sacrificing some trade salary like brewer that could be handy down the line.

    Jones, 1st and KJ is way too much for a rental.

    Glad you aren't the GM having a panic attack 7 games in.

    I suggest we keep our assets and wait for a better deal to shake loose.
