Alston has been on a tear the last few games compared to earlier in the season. The Magic really need a guy playing point, to pose a scoring threat so that opens up Dwight.

It's a great deal for the Magic.

I'm assuming Jameer is out for the season, or at least until June-ish. I haven't heard much news about him lately.

Finally time to move on from Rafer. I know it is not a popular move among Rockets fans but it is time we go in a different direction. We go everything we could from Rafer. This should be fun.

Aaron Brooks deserve to start over him but this deal didn't help the Rockets

i think it will be a good deal for the rockets. brooks is clearly a more solid pg and more consistent

it is addition by subtraction for the rockets

Horrible deal, doesn't even save money. Lowry's a bench player who can't hit 3's. Just atrocious unless there's something better to follow. Either way I'd rather have Orlando's pick than Lowry.

I believe Rockets are putting faith on Aaron Brooks. This is very exciting.

If they utilize adelman's offense to it's full potential, houston would not necessarily need an outstanding point guard... move the ball around and take smart shots...

i believe in brooks and i am a fan but his ability as a floor general is questionable... its not all about apg... alston hoverd around 5apg struggled shooting but even with the headaches, he was a pretty good floor general for houston (struggles in the playoffs)...

this is alot of responsibility for young aaron brooks. if we had a healthy t-mac i would not be worried about it but basically we are looking in the playoffs where our point guard tandem is brooks and lowery... that VERY questionable...

i do trust our organization though...

Kyle Lowry is a better point guard than Rafer Alston IMO.

Lowry is a pass first point guard, plays good defense, doesn't need to score in order to be effective. He's very underrated just didn't get consistent minutes in Memphis but when he did he played very well.

Yeah somewhat, but Brooks hasn't really been playing great lately.

Rockets fans have been begging for a Rafer-less team for years. Well now they got their wish. I distinctly remember everyone saying they'd trade him for a bag of peanuts, yada, yada, yada. Well now most wish has come true and they are angry?!?!

These are the types of moves we need to take sometimes. I think they are ready to give the team to Brooks and see something in Lowry that we don't. Alston is a great floor general and all these other things, but his shooting has always hurt this team. Finally Brooks moves into the starting line up (where he has played well, although small sample).

I'm excited. I'm excited to see what happens with this team. Should be fun. I didn't have any hopes for this season after what went down in January so I'm happy for this trade. A good young one to come and fill in for backup. I trust Morey. He has made good trades and spotted good young talent in the past, and I will trust him once again.
