I'm sure the Rockettes want all of our non-shooters ...

My guess is they would want future picks

Randle goes, just about automatically due to $$.

So start with Julius and next year's ......say... top 10 protected....# 1.

Build it.

Or just be a nudge and criticize.

You propose a deal, you set parameters that ridiculously take our only good assets off the table, and I'm supposed to complete the trade for you.  You've obviously been living in Trumpland too long ...

Nah, man - you underrate everyone so much that you cant even get into a proper conversation.

Surely the new HOU prez/GM would be happy building with my starting point

Of course other teams will be making pitches as well - thats how the business works.

Nudge away.

I'd be happy to include this year's #8 if that's what it takes.
No- Mitchell.
Hard to swallow- Barrett.
No- Future picks.
Ok- anybody else.

Not me who wants Westbrook.
Sure watching Rustbrook fly around and do his one man gang routine would be somewhat entertaining.  But Russ and a lot of kids who can't shoot will lose a ton.

I'm sure HOU wants Randle since he complements Harden so well.
I doubt many teams will be looking to add Westbrook.  Moist have PG's and he's a highly paid divisive player who doesn't impact winning.

Knix would do it, because that's what the Knix do.  Add star attractions who help fill seats, assuming there will be actually fans attending games.

I posted this when he was still in OK and there were trade rumors ...

Russ's OKC teams were 226 games over .500 his last ten years (discounting only his rookie campaign)

One year with Rockets - 16 games over

A conference champ

106 playoff games played in his ten playoff seasons (must have won a few of those)

"Not a winner" is absurd talk.

OKC put together good teams.
Westbrook was paired with Durant for 8 years, while they had Ibaka and Harden for a number of those years.
Later Durant, Westbrook Steven Adams.

Without Durant they dropped under 50 W's every year.
Paul George joining Westbrook & Adams -- finished an underwhelming 48 & 49 W's.
Swap Chris Paul for Westbrook and OKC had a better winning %.

It's been a well-run, well-coached team for a long time.  Drafting excellently when they had high picks (Durant, Westbrook, Harden in consecutive years) and pretty well with lower picks (Reg Jax #24; Adams #12, Brandon Clarke #21, got #11 Sabonis in the Ibaka trade).
And they've always brought in useful role players. 

The last few years, Westbrook has had trouble working well with Paul George and Harden.  Westbrook turns 32 the week after the election, and his inefficiency and injury risk are only going to increase.  Not a player likely to age well, as he's stubbornly unwilling to alter his game.

I could watch Westbrook zoom around for a couple of years if it only comes at the cost of Randle and Knox or whatever.  But it's not going to be a winning formula, and hopefully wouldn't detract from our yute.  I'd hate to give up 1st rounders for aging Russ.

While Randle is one of the least Rocket players around.  Though they could be new-directioning.  If they have any interest in Julius, i'd be trying to trade him for Covington.

Assuming there is no miracle vaccine by January 1st...

The NBA needs to go back to the bubble.  Maybe not under the "full season" concept.  But some kind of 6-8 week tournament.

Take a break from March to May, then come back again June 1st for another tournament.

There needs to be something, but it doesn't have to resemble anything we've seen before.

CARMELO ANTHONY likely to return to Knicks, with CHRIS PAUL (if Paul is dealt here)

Interesting.

LEON ROSE says Anthony is welcome to come whether or not CP3 is acquired.

I've been kicking around an idea on UK that is related.

I think trading for RW in relative isolation is not a good idea and all the nightmare scenarios would have a chance of coming to fruition.

However, if Thibs and the FO sat down with a pad that had two columns;  wish list/pragmatic acquisitions, I think RW for lots of reasons winds up on the pragmatic side of the ledger.

Other names might include Minnesota's Beasley, The Clipper's Harrell, Houston's House, and maybe a few others.

 Could some combination of (Randle, Portis, Ellington, Payton, Harkless, Knox, and DSJ) get it done with only minor draft pick exchange, I think there might be interest.

Alan Hahn on Facebook makes a compelling argument for RW - inexpensively, no picks - no youth core disruption (he picks on Frankie but that's his schtick).  If we assume House then no picks/no Frankie or Knox.

A bit of a badboy team.
