    Astros also get Frances Martes and Marlins get Kike Hernandez and Austin Wates.

    You'll love Kike. Can play anywhere on the diamond and great contact hitter with some pop.

    yes it is. Johnson was a 2nd round pick who hasn't played a minute, and Beverly was the starter on a 54 win playoff team and all 2nd team defense. I like Johnson, but that's way premature.

    So Ariza for 4 yr/32 mil. I like it honestly. It's front loaded and then de-escilates in value amount per year. He shoots the 3 well and has that perimeter D we lacked. Could play the 3 or the 2 for...

    Bosh has talked to the front office and his agent has basically ironed out an agreement. If he wants to go, it's set up to move very quickly.

    And really? You think that Bosh would pass up $88 mil...

    No. Beverly isn't going anywhere. If they need to dump more salary the most likely candidate is D-Mo since he counts about 1.5 mil against the cap and would be behind jones, bosh, and howard in the...

    Parsons is a RFA and they have bird rights. Meaning that once the rockets get the offer sheet (according to reports Nelson said that will happen tonight so the clock hasn't started yet), they have a...

    The max anyone can offer parsons is 14.5 mil base of the CBA rules. If the rockets sign bosh, they will get capped out, so really what's the difference in 12 mil and 14.5? Probably just the luxury...
