I have the feeling that the NBA labor dispute is going to make the NFL's (non)negotiations look like a friendly meeting of the local book club over tea and scones.
    I know man

    After the draft its going to be very lame.

    I would think that you guys had the inside scoop on getting Deandre Jordan. There was an article where he said growing up, that he always wanted to be a rocket.

    it would be amazing, the problem is that he is restricted and choice isn't his, if the clips match all offers we won't have the money to sign him, but maybe sign and trade, i would love him, he has no offensive skills, but he is a monster on D, he blocks and he isvery strong, with a scorer PF like scola he would fix perfectly

    Jordan has some offensive skills(finishing around the rim and put backs), but he is not a monster on D. He's super athletic and blocks a lot of shots, but also fouls a ton and is not disiplined at all. Not saying I don't want him, but he's not the fix all player we need.

    Why is that? The Rockets should be around 49 million if they pick up the options on Bud and Dragic. Obviously none of us know where the hard cap will be, but I imagine it would be somewhere near the low/mid 60's (it was 58 this season with the luxury tax starting at 70.3 - so I figure split the diff). That being the case, we could spend somewhere around 10 to 15 million on a free agent. Dallas on the other hand is at 61 million already for next season with Chandler, Barea, Stevenson and Butler off the books. They will need to resign Barea or back fill their PG position, since Kidd will be the only PG on the team at that point. They can play Terry there, but then they'll only have two SG's on the team, Beaubois and the rookie Jones, since Butler and Stevenson are gone. They've still got Marion and Brewer at the 3, only Dirk at the 4 and Haywood/Mahinmi signed for next season at center. They have to pick up 1's and 4's before they can worry about a 3rd center, IMO. Not to mention they won't have any cash to sign him anyway, if there is a hard cap.

    Teams that are in better cap shape that us next season are Denver (Nene/Andersen), Indy (Hibbert), LAC (Kaman), Bucks (Bogut), Twolves (Darko/Randolph), NJ (Lopez), NY (Stoudamire), Sac (*nobody*), Tor (Bargs?) and Was (Blache/McGee). Of those teams Sac and Tor have little or no money tied up at the 5 and a need at the center position. I think as a FA, Houston would be a more attractive destination than those two.

    ^ They are talking about lowering the cap though. Not raising it.

    If the owners want a hard cap, there is no way they can lower the cap. The elite teams in the league are all just about over the cap or right there at it, do anybody actually think stern is gonna do something to hurt his cash-cow franchises?

    I think he is, he is a taller hayes with a great block shot ability, I think he would fix pretty amzing here with scola at PF and ayeas and patterson comming off the bench, I would sign him in a heartbeat, the problems is his discipline and his price

    I know there has been talk of grandfathering in the old contracts as a percentage of the new cap... I also know a lot of the motivation behind wanting a hard cap has to do with a large segment of the owners wanting to do away with any sort of revenue sharing (luxury tax). Which is coincidentally part of the motivation behind the NFL labor talks, a group of owners has basically said revenue sharing needs to stop or be significantly reduced.

    If we're looking for a cheap Center.. Sign Eddy Curry, we could sign him for $1-2M..
