Zaza I see your point except one thing. Bonzi is perfect in Orlando. Yea they have bigs but neither of them can do anything in the post. at this point Dwight is just good for dunks and Darko jumpshots. why can't Bonzi be a top option? I think he'll help alot. of course they can't lock him up longterm because they'll want Carter, and Dwight and Darko will get better. but for one year? maybe 2? works.

I'm not seeing it. Send Bonzi down with Darko and How hanging around on the perimeter, is begging for every big in the league to just wait for Bonz to bring it in and swallow it up.

Back when you could isolate without a zone, Bonzi would've been a dream. Now, you can drop off a non-threatening Dwight and Darko and focus on the g'6 player who thinks he's big.

i don't think so, it's just Rocket fans who've been talking about what if Bonzi came to houston and he was the missing peice. so far, i haven't heard anything, but i do think houston has some money left to offer...not sure.

We have about 2 million left to offer him.

I haven't heard anything real about him coming. Just some "what ifs" in the papers.

I mentioned it a couple of weeks ago, I heard it from a source that I won't comment on, but they are a real gm writer (not me either)

CT: Ming
PF: Battier
SF: Wells
SG: McGrady
PG: Alston

Thats the lineup they'll use if they get him, and Howard will be used for the traditional power forwards when they need to go big. This is close to happening cause the Rockets haven't acquired a free agent power forward and Wells is the best player still going, and they like the rebounding and defense that he brings to the table.

I'm not saying this is a definite, more like a maybe like the Pierce to Denver deal rumoured on ISH. But it is being talked about by the Rockets, thats all I can say.

That lineup looks pretty killer.

Ming is big enough to have Battier play beside him. JVG said that Battier would play a lot of power forward this year.

I think the Rockets just want to put defenders on the floor, they dont really care about positions. Against guys like Duncan, Battier will need to move to the bench maybe. Although Battier can guard guys like Elson.

It's just hard for him when they play two big guys with low post game:
-Randolph and Magloire
-Duncan and Butler

Etc
