And it gets worse every year.

Lowry going to Miami doesn’t bode well for Deeky.

Yeah Miami was always going to get a PG, that doesn’t really affect Deeky. He wasn’t actually going to play this year. It’s like hinton, he never really got in the court

Smart for the Rockets to get rid of Wall by next year. He has a bad contract. May have to attach something to move him.

Trust me the rockets are trying every way they can to get rid of wall

There’s going to be a lot of really crap contracts initially and then some really strong value ones later in the period. Salary cap didn’t increase by much so a lot of these teams are going to punch themselves out.

Rockets only signed Theis. Smart. He plays defense and does the dirty work as a veteran. One more “bad” year record wise, then you start to sign some good veteran help in a better free agent class or trade for it & possibly land a Top 10 pick. Plus, Rockets are going to look attractive to potential free agents in the future. :rocket::rocket::rocket:

Btw, I know it’s not smart to have a full roster filled by youngsters no matter how good/great they can potentially can become, but I’ll say one more bad season tops before Rockets start winning for a playoff; this ain’t no trust the process BS or the Oklahoma City Thunder situation. A 2 season of missing the playoffs rebuild ain’t nothing from a ground up total rebuild.

I predict a 32-34 win season.

21-22 - $44 million owed. It will be tough.

22-23 - $47 million expiring contract aka salary cap space in 23-24. It should be easy to get value.

Wall’s uniform:


Duncan Robinson sets the $ record for an undrafted guy. Started at a d3 school before Michigan.

Chris Paul had a great year but he will be 40 when this contract is done.

They may have to attach a future 1st rd pick when the Rockets should be good. Eric Gordon should be easier because of his 3 pt shot and solid defense.

I feel like the hard cap per team is approaching $1 billion per year. Those numbers are outrageous.

Which makes me wonder how ungodly outrageous the owner’s paychecks are.

Or keep Wall through the contract.
Gives them 2 full seasons to figure the upside of these promising rookies and have Walls salary slot for a superstar after 22-23. (or 2 or 3 solid veterans)

Regardless. Things are looking up.
