This is the reason that the nets pkg of kind of good players like dinwiddie and levert might be appealing for them. Ultimately I think that trade ends with them bottoming out anyways.


He literally could go bankrupt.

The rockets are so screwed. Everything is working against them, it seems like. The best package is for Simmons and why wouldn’t he try to force his way out, too? What player would want to get in that asset-poor situation with that ownership group? Doomed to mediocrity until like 2030 unless they luck out in the draft.

I don't think it was bad at all, divincenzo isn't a bad player and bogdanovic is one of those guys who is going to deserve/make an amount of money that locks you into mediocrity unless you already have your stars aligned.

What's the most the Rockets could get from the Wizards in a deal like this? #9 or Rui?

This would be good for the warriors if Carter can stay healthy.

Is it too late for them to back out of the jrue deal?

I do too. At least for the fans. The front office doesn’t deserve to keep their jobs if they can’t fix this.
