Rockets Hope To Create Josh Smith's Roster Spot Via Trade 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Dec 26, 2014 5:13 am

The Houston Rockets still hope to open up a roster spot to sign Josh Smith by completing a trade on Friday.


Smith has already agreed to sign with the Rockets after clearing waivers.


The Rockets would have to waive a player if a trade is not found by Daryl Morey.

The Sixers would be willing to help out with that. Papanikalou and Terry for Kirilenko?

Yes, it's slanted in the Sixers favor. HOU is the one that needs the roster spot, yes?

Morey is trying to attain a future asset for one of his scrubs while opening up a roster spot?
