    SO...

    Harden - $15m

    Asik - $8.37M

    Total Cap hit - $31.7M

    The backload of the contract is only how much they take home on their paycheck, for Houston it's not the amount that gets counted against their cap.

    They also have a number of expirings and non-guaranteed contracts that they can dump, trade, waive, etc.

    They have enough room to get a Max player if they want one.


    Funny seeing people's comments about large contracts when they're misinformed.

    All 3 of them can bounce to a new team, and I wanted be shocked.

    The rockets have enough $$$ for a max contract even after considering rookie deals for next years draft and if they pick up options on Parsons, Morris, Patterson.

    Also it's a great testament to Morey's foresight as a GM in how he structures his contracts for 2nd round picks. 2 years guaranteed, 2 more as Team Options. Imagine if parsons has a good year and then we'd have to worry about teams poison pulling him with deals like we did with asik and Lin.

    It was already a tax free state so it might be attractive to a second or 3rd tier star.

    Ever since Lebron left and went to his biggest rival in the East, nothing surprises me. Especially those 3 who have shown very little loyalty (not saying they're unloyal guys, but they all wanted to leave -- cept Bynum, but he didnt mind leaving kobe's team).

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    Thanks MJ-Bulls for the picture.

    I doubt it. I would say their best bet is Bynum

    Don't bother, many don't realize how difficult it is to find a legit big man in today's nba.

    I actually think asik could be a most improved player candidate...

    Ew...just saying lol. XD
    Texas is way better than California economically speaking. Tax-free state, Top business state, great weather, top economic climate, good education, budget surplus, it's own electrical grid (there is 3 in the country eastern U.S., Western U.S., and Texas) meaning lower energy costs (this leads to lower goods costs such as food, clothing, and luxury). Many athletes make Texas home in the off-season.Usually when athletes come here they stay.

    Having Harden locked up quickly, and STILL having max contract room will probably change that next year, as the Rockets can even get involved in a SnT with a lot of young assets they still have. I don't think they make the playoffs this season as they are, but they sped up their rebuilding process in a huge way.
    Exactly. The Rockets still have a lot of Assets. They can sign a max, pick up all options, and still sign another $ 11 million contract. I doubt they would do that more apt to do a S&T.
