I'll be sick if the Warriors make that Knicks trade I saw floating around for Russell lol. The Knicks putting the Dallas pick in there? I want the pick to be for the team that Russell plays for, so I know it will be a good pick.

Oh the Rockets...

"“They’re done with Capela,” one Western Conference executive told CNBC, requesting that his name remain anonymous.

According to league sources who spoke to CNBC, Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta is seeking to shed additional salary off the team’s nearly $140 million payroll hoping to avoid a luxury tax."

https://www.cnbc.com/2020/02/03/nba-trade-deadline-looms-a-look-at-roster-changes-being-discussed.html

"Some league executives are under the belief that Rockets general manager Daryl Morey, who sparked the NBA-China rift last October, is under pressure from Fertitta to decrease salary while at the same time staying competitive as the team currently sitting in the fifth seed in the West.

“He’s got a new owner now. This isn’t the old days with Leslie Alexander; he’s with Fertitta now, who counts every penny. It’s a new world there,” said the executive."

I don't even consider a trade for Wiggins unless the Warriors are getting back multiple picks. Like, at minimum MIN's 1st and a few 2nds.

GR3 is shooting ~40% from 3pt line on 3.5%. He can be poor man's 3&D.

I am hoping (or more like dreaming) that Andre comes back on minimim next year. With all the rest this year, he will be Dre from couple of years ago.

My thought: the Warriors keep Russell and don’t entertain a trade for Wiggins.

But really I want to say thank you for making my day with the article and awesome writing. Not sure why — but nothing gives me more joy than calling the Rockets fraudulent. And I agree...it did not make sense for Durant to stop and clap for the ball instead of moving up the floor.
