02-20-2013, 09:30 PM
the rockets have 1 star, harden, 2 really really good role players (asik, parsons), and a very good role player (lin)

on top of that, they now have a a guy with legit star potential, 20/10 type potential.

so they could potentially have 2 stars with really good role players around them = championship in 2 years if t-rob develops

*Silver&Black*
02-20-2013, 09:31 PM
Kings, I will give you Josh Smith (expiring for cap space) and our 2 1st round picks for Cousins and a bad contract. :)

Because they're rookies and playing behind guys with more experience. Look at their insane numbers in the D-League and the fact that D-Mo has put up sick advanced numbers in limited playing time. Those guys have talent and are both first rounders themselves. Do I think they'll get more minutes than Robinson? I have no idea, but I think it will be a great battle between the three of them.

He's a half season into his NBA career. A guy who took a few years to develop in college is taking time to develop in the NBA, seriously how about giving him some time before we label the guy, Mel.

I don't think people are giving Patterson enough credit, because he's turned into a pretty solid stretch 4 this season who could be a low end starting 4 or one of the best bench bigs in the entire league. His biggest weakness is rebounding and it's a big one, but the guy has a very versatile offensive game and isn't a huge liability on defense.

I will say this much, though... I remember on draft night last year how disappointed I was when the Kings didn't take up the Rockets on their trade offer for all three of their first round picks. I knew at that point that no one else would trade back to give the Rockets the No. 5 pick and the chance to draft Drummond. But what would the Kings give now to go back in time and take that trade? And how hard would their front office have laughed if the Rockets had offered this deal to them on draft day?

Daryl Morey will be laughing his way to the bank...

patterson isnt "pretty damn good". his 15 footer is automatic, but he doesnt have many post moves, his D is so-so, and his rebounding is just plain bad. Robinson's potential is way more than that.

also hill was drafted 8th, was flipped for the dal pick sent to OKC in the harden deal, and has been a key reserve for the lakers the last year plus. not great, but far from a scrub

Sam Presti is arguably the best along with RC and maybe Mitch.

Presti has done a very good job, don't get me wrong, but look at what the guy has had to work with. He's had top 3-4 picks in three consecutive drafts and outside of Ibaka, hasn't exactly killed it with his other drafts. He also botched the Harden situation (probably should have dealt Westbrook) and has still yet to acquire a low post scorer. Basically, he got gifted on three straight drafts with top 10 players and he gets treated like royalty for it.

Morey, on the other hand, was gifted a franchise with two aging, injured superstars and a horrid cap situation and has turned it into one of the better cap situations in the entire league. Every year he turns mediocre draft picks into quality starters and rotational players and spins "meh" pieces into quality assets. And he has gambled on players when people said he was crazy to do so only for those players to pay huge dividends.

The guy turns water into wine. I'm going to start calling him GM Jesus.

He's never had the fortunes of drafting high in the lottery because the Rockets haven't been very bad under his watch. If you go back and track chronologically how he has set up this franchise to where they are today you'll realize how great of a GM he is. This is not the end game.

So much fail in this post. Westbrook was widely considered a stupid and reach pick..how did that turn out? He picked James Harden 3rd who was also considered a reach and many people said OKC was stupid for not taking Curry/Evans. Both picks have turned out to be awesome. He definitely SHOULD NOT have traded Westbrook who is locked up for 6 years and is a top 10 player in this league. He got a huge return for a guy who was on an expiring deal and had a bunch of question marks relating to performance as the man or on the big stage.

Ibaka was an amazing pick late in the draft. Reggie Jackson is a very good player who would be a bledsoe type of player if given the minutes. Maynor was a good pick-up. Trading green for a bruising center who got us to the WCF and Finals was a good move, although people like to criticize the contract (which isn't very good) but there were no other centers available. And if you remember, he did acquire Tyson Chandler which would have been an amazing bargain for him.

The only gift was Durant. Other than that, he has been a top 1-2 GM for the past 5 years and it really isn't debatable. Picking in the top 5 isn't easy especially when your team has so many needs (as is evident with the kings picking jimmer/robinson and the bobcats picking Biyombo/Morrison and with the Wizards picking Vessely etc).

poleandreel
02-20-2013, 10:46 PM
Also, we don't need a low post scorer. Miami doesn't have one and neither did the mavs. Durant plays on the block and has good post moves. Ibaka scores 15ppg on 56% shooting. Post scoring is overrated. We could have very easily won those 3 close games in the finals and have a championship. But because we lost 3 games by 5 points we have a HUGE NEED for a post player? No, that is completely false.

That being said, Morey is a good GM.

I'll give you some good news Patrick Patterson can ball. He has some post moves, he's played a bit of D, he hustles and can stroke the 3. Dougie will also help you. Cole Aldrich is crap. If I were SAC I'd send him to the D-League immediately.

02-20-2013, 10:57 PM
Westbrook was widely considered a stupid and reach pick..how did that turn out?
First off, he wasn't considered a huge reach and it was the fourth overall pick. Morey hasn't had anything REMOTELY close to the fourth overall pick and Presti had three straight, so don't tell me on this "huge reach" ********.


He picked James Harden 3rd who was also considered a reach and many people said OKC was stupid for not taking Curry/Evans.
You and I must have been watching different drafts then.


Both picks have turned out to be awesome. He definitely SHOULD NOT have traded Westbrook who is locked up for 6 years and is a top 10 player in this league. He got a huge return for a guy who was on an expiring deal and had a bunch of question marks relating to performance as the man or on the big stage.
Harden has clearly shown to be the better player this season and it's not debatable. Yes, it made sense at the time to deal Harden. But it still has proven to be the wrong move at this point in the year, and I think he compliments Durant's game far better than Westbrook's does.


Ibaka was an amazing pick late in the draft. Reggie Jackson is a very good player who would be a bledsoe type of player if given the minutes. Maynor was a good pick-up.Trading green for a bruising center who got us to the WCF and Finals was a good move, although people like to criticize the contract (which isn't very good) but there were no other centers available.
Oh really? Do you want me to go down the list on the unbelievable late picks and gambles that have paid off for Morey? Aaron Brooks. Carl Landry. Chase Budinger. Chandler Parsons. Dealing for Scola. Dealing McGrady for Martin. Dealing Alston for Lowry. Dealing Brooks for Dragic. Spending money on Asik. Spending a max on Harden.

Presti might have had a few lucky hits, but that's the norm for Darly Morey. He does this **** every season.


The only gift was Durant. Other than that, he has been a top 1-2 GM for the past 5 years and it really isn't debatable. Picking in the top 5 isn't easy especially when your team has so many needs (as is evident with the kings picking jimmer/robinson and the bobcats picking Biyombo/Morrison and with the Wizards picking Vessely etc).
I'm not saying picking in the top five is easy, but I'm saying it's a hell of a lot easier to build a team with three straight top four picks in really talented drafts than it is to do what Morey has done. And to try and say otherwise is completely ludicrous and ill-informed.

How do you figure on the bolded? Garcia is guaranteed next year isn't he?

Every site I've read has Garcia as a team option. Honeycutt also won't be back. So, basically Morey shipped two expiring contracts (Aldrich, Douglas) and two okay, young PFs with guaranteed money next year (Morris, Patterson) for Robinson, $1.6 million in cap space and two second round draft picks. If that's not rape I don't know what is.

T-Rob has 20-10 Potential, now give him some time to mature and slowly bring him WITH one of the best low post players in the history of the game (THE KEVIN MCchale) coaching him? Please... this was an easy deal for Houston to accept. Patterson was at best a 7th or 8th man to come into the game and stretch the floor (ala a Channing Frye, Lite). T-Rob was very very good in college.

As a Kings fan... I can say that I never was 100% on the T-Rob bandwagon. I actually wanted us to pick Lillard in the draft. He seemed like the perfect complement to Evans in the backcourt... but that ship has sailed.

As for this trade... the ONLY positive I can see is that we get a player who can shoot better, and played with Cousins. So, hopefully, they help each other improve. Maybe this motivates Cousins to care about the team more.

BUT... knowing that this trade is pretty bad, I can clearly say that this has NOTHING to do with any GM being smart... as it has more to do with our decision making being bad right now. I guess Morey can be praised for being a vulture and using his teams $$$ to suck talent from our team... but really, it has nothing to do with genius. If the roles were reversed, do you Morey could even buy lemonade with the Maloofs wallet?

Now... I'm not saying Petrie has been making the best decisions lately, but we don't know to what extent it is the ownership situation. And what part is his actually losing his abilities. I think it is definitely a combination of both. All I know, is that if you ask any kings fan on this forum, Jimmer was not our first pick, T-Rob was not a unanimous choice, and this trade would never have gone through. If the majority of us simpletons see the errors... can't understand how Petrie wouldn't.

I like the move for Houston and Phoenix. Houston did a smart thing by trading a young athletic PF due for a huge pay raise for someone with potential and secure parts for the future. They did have to take back salary in Garcia, but isn't he a short contract or expiring contract? Phoenix just got a salary/roster spot dump in Marcus Morris, where they get a young player. They can pair the Morris twins off the bench possibly.

They're the youngest team in the NBA and in the thick of the playoff race in the west while having played the third thoughest SOS.

The mayor has been never more certain about the Kings staying in SAC, but honestly, this was a useless salary dump of Francisco Garcia's contract.. which has a team option next season.. So the Rockets will drop him and pay nothing.. It was a salary dump ONLY for the Maloofs benefit.

Morris/Patterson were both soft as hell. Poor rebounders for the position and preferred to camp out rather than play in the post. Patterson wasn't a bad player though. Decent shooter/defender for the position. Robinson, from what I've seen (albeit isn't much) doesn't really play soft. He has tons of talent and will flourish on a pick and roll type of offense. The Rockets didn't have a great pick and roll finishing big man on the team. Hopefully Robinson can fill that void. He's gonna get a lot of easy attempts with Lin and Harden as the two primary ball-handlers.

Another thing this trade does is open up some playing time for some of their other young PF's in Donatas Montiejunas and Terrence Jones (assuming he stays). Plus Royce White is finally playing in D-League, who may be an after thought right now but can end up being a solid asset.

Extremely accurate on both accounts. Morris can be a versatile rotational big at the 3/4 and Patterson is an extremely versatile big man who can hit the 3-pointer and defend the 3-5 at times, but neither guy could rebound and neither guy had a consistent offensive post game to speak of.


Robinson, from what I've seen (albeit isn't much) doesn't really play soft. He has tons of talent and will flourish on a pick and roll type of offense. The Rockets didn't have a great pick and roll finishing big man on the team. Hopefully Robinson can fill that void. He's gonna get a lot of easy attempts with Lin and Harden as the two primary ball-handlers.
The pick and roll point you made is a good one. The Rockets have two of the best pick and roll creators in the NBA and no big man who excels at finishing them. Parsons often fills that roll, but he isn't strong enough when opposing bigs clog the pain, and Asik has been better than expected at this, but he loses the ball too often on the way to the basket and misses too many easy shots around the rim. A strong, athletic big like Robinson will thrive in that role and consistently get good looks every night because of that play. If he can rebound and play defense, McHale will give him the minutes to shine offensively.


Another thing this trade does is open up some playing time for some of their other young PF's in Donatas Montiejunas and Terrence Jones (assuming he stays). Plus Royce White is finally playing in D-League, who may be an after thought right now but can end up being a solid asset.
I keep waiting for Motiejunas or Jones to break into the rotation, but they just haven't been consistent. D-Mo has a really sexy offensive post game, but he misses too many easy looks and there are just way too many lapses on defense. Jones is also still pretty raw. Regardless, there should be a really solid three-way battle for that starting PF spot. In the meantime, I wouldn't be shocked to see McHale play small ball like he did tonight with Parsons at the 4. He loves playing small ball and they have a lot of firepower offensively with Delfino and Parsons on the same court.

I actually think that's extremely unlikely. McHale has shown in the past that he wants his young guys to earn their keep and both D-Mo and Jones have proven they are willing to work hard and excel at whatever he asks of them. I doubt very seriously that McHale is very fond of White, and I honestly don't think he fits what this team needs nearly as well as the other guys do. I think it's honestly a three-man race with White being the odd man out and likely playing the rest of the season in the D-League.


patrick patterson is a beast. way better then thomas robinson but in years trob might be a best but thats in years
I'm sorry, but Patterson a "beast"? He's a below average starting PF who can stretch the floor with a sexy jumper and occasionally use his strength to overpower guys in the post, but he's a horrible rebounder, an average defender at best and he has very few post moves to speak of. I like him a lot and I'll miss him in a Rockets uniform, but calling him a beast is a huge overstatement.

That rookie adds a dimension PP and MM couldn't add. Rebounding and points in the paint. He's also a raw finisher but more athletic, helps on defense a bit more. Higher upside for sure. Add to that from what I've seen he's a shotblocker too. #5 pick you don't give up on a 1st rd. top 10 pick in yr. 1.

PPat is a 4 who can't rebound but likes to take 3pt shots. Yes, PPat is better than T-Rob now, but the latter's potential is way higher and he better fits what the Rockets need at the 4 (size and rebounding).

Those could be really important games at the end of the season with us getting into the playoffs or at least deciding who we play. 5 pg's makes me feel like they must have something else in the works.

Patterson's solid, his reb problem is partially a design of the team always playing him for the corner 3s. though even then he's below average rebounder at best.

He can' shoot a 3 better than most guys his size though and is pretty fast and a ok passer.

Still, as others noted, he doesn't uses his size well. the only time he can dominate inside is on mismatches. in the end the sum is not quite as good as the individual parts, you'd think a big athletic guy that can shoot should be better than this. but the end result is .... mediocre. which has it's value of course, but not really to teams like the Kings at the moment.

Robinson should at least address the rebounding woes of the Rocket PFs to some extend, though D-Mo is also an decent rebounder he probably get push around too much down low at this point. though getting better.

Also, Honeycutt is most likely a more useful bench player than Douglas / Aldrich anyway. the later is just your standard 7 foot stiff that can give 6 fouls. while the former is a really erratic combo guard

Aldrich and Douglas were both extremely expendable. Greg Smith is better and cheaper (I think) than Aldrich and the signing of Patrick Beverly made Tony Douglas useless.

I hope everyone does well though in their new places. Morris should feel a bit more comfortable playing with his brother in Phoenix and hopefully Patterson can be a stabilizing influence on Cousins (his former teammate in college).

RollingWave
02-21-2013, 02:30 AM
Smith makes 1/3 of what Aldrich makes this year, believe it or not Aldrich was actually a #11 pick, what a bust of a pick that was. (though to be fair, from a per / min pov he was pretty decent last year, maybe he can still turn it around a bit.) Smith went undrafted so he's essentially making the minimum .

Smith have his problems in consistency and foul trouble as well, but he's still obviously the better player at the moment.

Outside of Robinson and maybe Jones, there isn't any other young pieces that isn't part of their core and expirings that could fit Smith's contract.

Probably a steal from the Rockets. On the other hand the Kings are just absolutely dysfunctional, why invest time in another prospect, when your player development seems to stunt players instead to let them grow. There is no system no continuity and very few guys to look up to for the young guns.

Also, we don't need a low post scorer. Miami doesn't have one and neither did the mavs. Durant plays on the block and has good post moves. Ibaka scores 15ppg on 56% shooting. Post scoring is overrated. We could have very easily won those 3 close games in the finals and have a championship. But because we lost 3 games by 5 points we have a HUGE NEED for a post player? No, that is completely false.

That being said, Morey is a good GM.

More like great and the best GM in the league.

Houston is starting to look like a pretty good destination for free agents. Just one more star and a few good role players and vets, and they could compete in about 2-3 years. #D12

Morris is basically a sub par corner 3 guy right now.

I guess Suns had to be cut in for a salary match/dump but acquiring a 1 year removed lottery pick for an early 2nd and teaming him up with his bro? Gold.

Marcus Morris has shown as much as T Rob up to now.

I'm just saying Rockets did good, especially in the future. Conceding you won't win the ship' this year and improving an area of need while making sure they have space for a max guy.
This offseason is going to be interesting. Could the rockets Sign say Josh smith and do a S&T for Dwight or basically add 2 max's with all their spare parts (montejunas, white, jones)

Kings got screwed unless its to please DMC.
The Suns did good as well and no one is mentioning that.

Ehh Morris is not a good rebounder or defender. Robinson can do both. Suns got Morris for next to nothing so anything can happen.

Dwight will be a free agent no need to S&T if they do want him.

Morris is shooting like 38% from down town this year, basically the best on the Rockets (Delfino is very slightly ahead of him.) that is quite good actually. he's a useful enough tweener on the right team and should enjoy a fairly lengthy career if he can keep this up.

It is actually a bit of a steal for the Suns to get him for a 2nd rounder. he's not a star, or even a starter, but almost cerrtainly a useful rotational player on any team. but Houston did it more or less to free up roster space and losing Morris isn't exactly a huge hit either.

That is of course, unless the Rockets draft the next Chandler Parsons with the pick, but it's not like the Suns would have surely done the same if they kept the pick.
