Post#1 » by DeathLineup » Sat Jun 20, 2020 12:26 pm

I'm gonna hit first. Feel free to contribute, but you should specify the source of the rumor.

1. Rockets interested in Tyler Johnson (https://www.houstonchronicle.com/texas-sports-nation/rockets/article/Source-Rockets-roster-move-guard-Tyler-Johnson-15352724.php)

Shams reporting Noah signing for the rest of the year with the Clippers. I think he was on a 10-day?

If he even remotely isn't 100% to return, he needs to sit it out and rehab the rest of this offseason and see how he looks in October/November. I think he really only has one more chance left to possibly work his way back to big money deals (even though his first year or two back will likely be very small money, short term deals).

Rockets sign David nwaba who’s out for the year with an Achilles injury. I actually loved nwaba pre-injury but he won’t be the defender he was before

I dunno.
He is a bit of a freak of nature to begin with as was Dominque athletically. I can't imagine he's ready to play, but I'd have taken him for next season. His 3 was coming on before he went down, which made losing his D all that painful. He was only going to get better with age and experience as well.

Just a note but the Nets now signed Johnson after giving him an offer sheet that was matched, and traded for Crabbe after giving him a sheet that was matched. Think we need Otto Porter and they're set?

So Paul George is the reason Carmelo Anthony struggled on defense all these years...

Rockets released Isaiah hartenstein. I’m guessing he can’t be signed by anyone for the bubble, but whoever gets him for next year will get a good player

If that's true I'm assuming MKG is the odd man out since Dallas values Courtney Lee in the room and want him in Orlando even though he can't play. Don't really understand the Burke desire though. I would have thought The Accountant might be brought back to replace Lee.
