I knew it I knew it all along I knew it that Carmelo is the ONLY difference between being a 25 win team and beating the warriors by 30 I knew it I knew it

Yeah one more wing. Thabo isn't getting much run in Utah. Wonder if they'd be willing to do business with Houston though

My guess is that the Suns will trade or buy out Ariza and then Ariza comes home.

it's smaller
we definitely need another long wing defender that can switch on PF/SF/SG
well known poster with inside info on CF drop a hint "welcome home ------"
best guess is someone from Houston or former Rockets player coming back and his name has 6 letters
idk
Brewer?
definitely not Butler

They didn't scapegoat him they just had no where in the rotation for him because he isn't good and Clark is better for what the team needs at the 4

Yeah one more wing. Thabo isn't getting much run in Utah. Wonder if they'd be willing to do business with Houston though

I could see it. Maybe for a 1st? We'd also wanna keep our cap space untouched next season.

An expiring player that's out of your rotation isn't returning a first unless that first comes with a really bad contract. I was thinking Chriss to match salary as an expiring (Melo and MCW works too if they prefer) a second and cash

That's probably his value. But he's probably worth more than market to the Jazz, and the Jazz seem to not care at all about 2nd rounders (see Korver trade). A lot probably depends on whether he can get back into the lineup as he comes back from his injury. He might be able to do poor/homeless man's Ariza things for you. But if a first is off the table, we probably can't get anything done.

Looking forward to the game tonight. You guys are turning things around lately, and with Chris Paul back and Harden not leaving in the 4th quarter, I expect a very tough matchup.

Thabo for a 1st rounder is nonsense. Utah clearly overpaid for Korver.

Rockets should try and trade Melo and Chriss for a random expiring like Jason Smith or someone making just under $6M just to help match salaries at the deadline. Melo and Chriss can return about$6M combined and Smith cab return about a million more while only taking up one roster spot

Utah could probably use Sefolosha more than just about any other expiring, so I guess it's just not a possibility.

Carmelo + Chriss + top 8 protected pick to Brooklyn Nets for Joe Harris
Harden is still a work-in-progress. He can score, but he can't help his teammate that much - Yao Ming
