We actually have the assets to go get Chris Paul. Add him and NeNe and this could be a good team. I doubt either happens though. Curious to see how well we do w/o Adelman. Not a believer in McHale. Hopefully be able to see a game this year but we'll see. Not a single nat'l TV game last year and no stars added.
According to Clutchfans.net Rockets GM Daryl Morrey said there 2nd 1st-Round Pick Donatas Motiejunas will remain overseas for this year. If the lockout didn't happen then he likely would of been over here.

Also former 2nd-round pick Sergio Llul is a possibility for next season.

Chandler Parson(Our 2nd Rd Pick) will be in camp once he signs his rookie deal.
Bump! WhereTF are you guys?
