Couldn't you guys offer Vucevic, Reddick, Harkless, and a 1st? Not saying you would have to give up that much, but you guys could put a solid offer on the table forsure.
That's seems like the actual deal if it would happen tbh. But I would probably pass. And lol at your sig bet. Do these people actually leave when they lose?
Magic. Red Sox. Colts. Knights.
In other news..... Harden is 5th in the league in scoring at 26.3 ppg (10 straight games with 25 +) while shooting just under 47%. 4.3 rebounds, 5.3 apg and 1.8 spg. Though you're right, def doesn't look like a #1 scoring option to me
Derrick Rose's stats last year
21.8 ppg - 3.4 rpg - 7.9 apg - .9 spg on 43.5% shooting. Shhhh don't tell anyone, but Hardens stats are better then Roses....also Chicago is still winning without Rose, just like they were when Rose got injured.
Add to that he's only 23 years old and still another 4-5 years away from his prime. On top of that he has his team 4 games over 500 at 18-14 record. That's with players like Asik, Delfino, Lin, Parsons, Anderson around him.
Off topic I know but I just wanted to check in on you to see how much you like that crow, since you've been eating alot of it. Also keep my quote up. I like people seeing I saw it coming well before he was a #1 option.
Rap do you like the fact that you're getting eaten up in the main forum on this exact same topic? Like I said, keep my quote up. I like seeing you look like a dumbass in here everyday.
Rap just stop it. You always made it sound like Harden wasn't a #1 option and he didn't even belong in the same catagory as Rose, now that he is a #1 option and putting up better stats then Rose while leading his team to victories you're still being stubborn.
Here's Raps quote in the main forum which he is now getting crap for by ever poster who has any type of common sense.
The Rockets are beating bad teams and losing to good teams...lots a teams do this. He's putting up good numbers, no doubt. But he's not exactly beating good teams (and thats hard because no one is around him really) Put a guy thats lesser than he is, I still don't see them being able to compete with the big boys. Get him a player better than him, they'll be right up there. He's not a number 1 on a contending team. Have always said it, and will continue to say it
Put that next to my quote and we'll see who gets more laughs. Btw you disappeared from the main forum.....to many people calling you out at once????
There's not really any huge-impact free agents over the next couple of years that will leave their team anyway but having Amare cripples us financially and developmentally for a few more seasons. We're gonna be bad with him but not bad enough to secure a high pick. And who knows how his knees will hold up.
I like Vuc, Nicholson and Afflalo. Not sold on Harkless yet. I think Nicholson could be a Jeff Green-type player when he was on OKC. I'd like to sign Bledsoe when Nelson expires and draft a PF this summer like Anthony Bennett of Alex Polythress or maybe Shabazz Muhammed for insurance if we trade Afflalo. Or we could even look at signing Gay, John Wall or Danny Granger if we want a star.

Lol Rap you're to much man. Ok now you're going from he's not a #1 option to he's not an ELITE #1 option. You keep back peddling so much it's tough to keep up with you.
Incase you haven't noticed, noone called him a Lebron James or a Kevin Durrant. If you're talking "elite" there are only roughly 4-5 players who can even be in that catagory. Harden isn't there yet, "maybe" one day.
edit: Rap one more thing, if you can't even find ONE person to agree with you in the main forum, then that should tell you something.

And I'm saying best player on the team. As like Dwight, Lebron, Wade, Kobe, Dirk, Rose, Durant, Melo (this year) everyone is categorizing Harden with this group of players, and he's just not one of them
I guess they feel his character isn't worth it. But if it took Harkless and Vuc I'd definitely be all ears.The Orlando Magic were rumored to be one of the teams most likely to make a trade for Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins, according to a report from Kentucky Sports Radio, but Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reported Monday that the report is false, and that Orlando is "not interested" in such a trade.
Cousins, 22, fell to the Kings with the fifth pick in the 2010 NBA Draft due in large part to concerns about his maturity. Sacramento suspended him indefinitely for a confrontation he had with coach Keith Smart, whom the Kings hired in part for his ability to reach the Mobile, Alabama native. The suspension lasted only one game, but Smart held him out for another contest anyway, indicating that he may not have supported the decision to lift the suspension so soon.
Tom Ziller of Sactown Royalty believes that a package of second-year center Nikola Vučević and rookie forward Maurice Harkless could be good enough to entice the Kings to deal Cousins to Orlando; Robbins' report indicates, however, that the Magic aren't even the slightest bit interested in Cousins. The 270-pounder owns career averages of 15.9 points, 9.6 rebounds, 2.2 assists, and 1.3 steals on 43.5 percent shooting.
