I doubt the Rox would deal with us, but I wouldn't mind Covington if they're getting cheap and there's a way. Looks like his contract is $11.3M for next year. That's the type of versatile bench player we could use with Iguodala gone.
That would be extreme for the Rockets to let go of RoCo. The team would literally just be Russ & James harden haha.
Look at their payroll. They're already headed that way
$131 already committed for next season for only 10 players
We know that egomanic isn't gonna pay the tax despite his hilarious proclamations otherwise.
The cap already gonna get wrecked, they're probably gonna have to artificially freeze the tax line at the same level it is now - $132M
So if you got $131M committed to 10 guys and the tax is $132M and you need minimum 13 players . . .
Tucker, Gordon, or Roco has to go. They'll probably deem Tucker untouchable given he's the key to their defense. Gordon has 4 years $75M (thats right . . $75M) STARTING next year, so good luck finding someone taking that remaining deal.
That leaves Roco who has a very reasonable $25m/2years left. Basically any contender would be happy to have him on that deal as a starter or key bench guy.
