    Should we? Could We? Taj Gibson?

    Read a story this morning about Taj and apparently he's in the exact same grabbable situation as Harden was. The question is, should we? He's fairly young, pretty explosive at times, and might mix in well with what we're doing here. Do you go for such a deal just for the sake of making the deal, or do you hold out and pursue mid-season or next season ventures (aka Josh Smith)

    No. I don't see how he is a big improvement over cheaper and younger guys like Motiejunas, Jones and Patterson. He is already 28 I believe and he's going to demand some money, I'm fine with the 4 position right now, let's see what Jones and Motiejunas can do.

    I love Taj Gibson, but the problem I have is that he's a defensive-minded four and he'd be playing next to a defensive-minded five in Asik. I think Houston needs to have at least one offensive big man in the starting rotation.

    I see this...

    ...and I want to see LOTS of it here. I agree, we're stacked deep at the 4, and the youth need their shot, but if that's a cheap'ish pickup, it makes you wonder if it's worth the offer.

    I don't want to trade for another big name player, if we are going to get one, I'd rather sign him as a FA, we have already given up so much and have enough room to sign another max contract after Harden.

    It's REALLY early to make that declaration. He wasn't even the second best PF in the preseason. He'll be third on the depth chart and have to show a marked improvement before I would make a prediction like that.

    Gibson isn't very good, not any better than what we have

    Offensively he's not. But defensively, I'd say he's one of the best defensive bigs in the NBA. I think Chicago will eventually amnesty Boozer and give Gibson starter minutes.

    The Boozer signing was a huge mistake, not that he isn't a good player or don't deserve the contract, but that money could be way better expended. Gibson and Noah would be a scary duo defensively.

    I believe in him, I really think he will make strides during the season.

    Actually I don't think he is that good of a player or that he did deserve the contract he was given. It's probably one of the 10 worst contracts in the NBA today and I wouldn't be shocked if Chicago amnestied him after this season.

    Well, he signed an extension. 4 years 38 mil. I am huge on Jones. I honestly think the Rockets should trade Morris/Patterson/Douglas for a shooter/scorer off the bench to make room for Jones/Dmo and fill a need.
