Uh.................can't really decide on this deal. It may be surprising to people, but I say this deal would make or break the Rockets for the playoffs. Why? Alston has been key in the past few victories, and in fact he's been a nice assest to the Rocs all season. If Lowry and Brooks fail to match that, then the Rockets would have effectively nobody at the point, which is why I think this will make or break the Rockets.
1. Brian Cook is still in the NBA?
2. Why is Houston doing this? Financial reasons? Unsure if Kyle is a cap expirer.
I have no idea why this trade was made. I don't think Brooks is ready for full time PG duties. I'm hoping there is another deal in the works. WEAK, if you ask me. Alston is no all-star but he runs the team better than Brooks.
