I don't care, i only post in the main forum
The Houston Rockets will not pick up contract options Aaron Brooks, Carlos Delfino and Francisco Garcia.
Brooks appeared in 7 games for the Rockets in 2012-13 after joining the team on Mar. 5.
Delfino played in 67 games during his one-year tenure with the Rockets.
Garcia was acquired by the Rockets in a sign-and-trade with the Sacramento Kings on Feb. 21, 2013.
Knicks should try to get either Delfino or Brooks for the MLE. or even better a combination of the knicks expirings and some "cash" to take the contract from them. I remember Melo said he wanted Carlos as a team mate so why not.

Thoughts???The team is tossing around the idea of sending Tyson Chandler to the Minnesota Timberwolves, sources report.
The Knicks have talked with the Timberwolves about acquiring Derrick Williams in place of Chandler. He is gamble and was disappointing in his first few years in the league, but he has a skill set that can make him productive in the paint and can develop down the road.
New York would also get Luke Ridnour who has been a target of the team for years. He would give the Knicks depth at point guard.
New York also wants the No. 26 draft pick in the trade. It would give the team two picks in the first round.
Minnesota would be set at the center position and New York would build with depth and youth.
What do the Wolves do with Pekovic? He's a RFA and Saunders said they want to bring him back.
Idk what, how or when but this summer i think we have at least 1 power move to happen

i think the tyson rumor (and most trade talk) is just that a rumor. Knicks in my mind look like they want to load up with basically the same cast and try it again....
All sign's look to the knicks trying to find more half decent players by scraping the basketball barrel. in my mind we will likely move all those expirings for an older player to sign to a too long contract again.... maybe we get lucky and we get a not so old player for all those expirings.
Screw the draft, ship the pick for T-Rob...
he Rockets have been offered the opportunity to shed the contract of Thomas Robinson for a first-round pick in the 2013 draft, according to ESPN.com.
The Rockets are likely to capitalize on this chance for a few reasons: Dwight Howard has been rumored to be interested in joining the Rockets and this would clear up cap space, the Rockets have some interest in foreign players with that compensatory pick and Thomas Robinson hasn't really been that great. Surprisingly, T-Rob shot 44.9 percent from the field for 4.5 points in 13.0 minutes per game in 19 contests with the Rockets after being traded by the Kings. Last year's fifth pick in the draft already has the bust label on him and could be looking for a new team next week.
He did not get nearly enough run to be judged fairly (although I feel the same about Derrick Williams sometimes too, I would absolutely go for him in a separate deal) and can be a steal for pick number 20-something.
Rockets have very good reasons for getting rid of T-Rob to clear cap space to make a run at Dwight. But why did Sac-town dump a 5th pick so soon?? He hasn't been very good especially for a player with 3 years college ball under his belt, drafting a player is always a gamble but in T-Rob's case his rookie year tells me he'll be out of the league in a few years. The Knicks would be making a mistake dealing their first round pick for him.
We cannot deal our pick for T. Robinson at least at this point. We have no pick in 2014 as a result of the Melo trade and a team may not trade consecutive picks. This also means we cannot trade a 2015 pick. As for 2016, Denver gets to switch picks with us if it so desires.
Robinson $3.5 M
#24 pick is worth $997,300
Ronnie Brewer trade exception $1M
this trade wouldn't be acceptable
there would have to be a third team since we have no wiggle room...
I can't remember where I saw it but I heard a rumor that the Warriors could be open to dealing Lee for Amar'e so they could avoid the luxury tax while still signing Landry and Jack. Apparently Amar'e's deal has one less year. If this were so I'd do this move quick before The Warriors realised how much of a stiff Amar'e is. Alright Lee's D is laughable as Amar'es but he grabs boards and can actually get on the court!
