Juicy rumor of the day...
I don't like it, not a fan of Amare and Barbosa is too inconsistent. Amere didn't like being second banana to Shaq, he'd be in the same boat in Houston. I'm for keeping TMac and his expiring contract and just taking the cap space the next year. Our frontcourt is good, it's the 1-3 we need help at.
I think the Rockets need help in the frontcourt. Name me somebody on there roster over 6'10 besides Yao? I think Brain cook is but that's not good. They have no height after Yao. They have bodies but nobody who can score. I like Landry and Hayes but Rockets really need a real PF and a back up center. I agree with you on Barbosa though I wouldn't want him running my team as the starting PG.
Luis Scola is legit. Chuck Hayes is the guy who sucks. Well he's a decent defender I suppose. But they need a backup Center and PG.
This trade would suck for the Rockets.
Hayes is an outstanding defender and rebounder, not decent. He is one of those glue guys championship teams need. Houston just already has enough of those, we need contributor.
