well houston has had an open spot all this time so its not like they needed it. im guessing they are looking to sign another player (have no idea what position), and continue a Deke return.
Yea, but I thought it was going over the luxury tax that was stopping Houston from signing another player? With Stevie and his $2-$3 million gone with nothing in return, they can sign a couple of cheap players now.
Francis has an expiring contract so he will come off the books for Memphis next year. Really sad to see Steve traded....again. He took less money to come here, could have went to the LAC or MIA for the mid-level exception. They did him cold but hey, that is the biz right? He didn't even get a chance this season. For all he's done for the City (more importantly off the court), they could have handled this better. On Christmas Eve too?!? Damn. That is messed up. Couldn't even wait until after the holidays.
scrugged - get screwed on x-mas eve = how fitting.
Thank you morey. this move rids us of 3 million $ meaning that we can offer moutombo more money then both spurs and the celtics can. moutombo saying he'll be somwhere else has made the rockets wakeup from there slumber.expect dikimbe to be a rocket within a day or two
