Overall I'm not too big on this move, but it does accomplish 2 things...

Cap space, and Aaron Brooks will get more minutes...I think the organization sees Brooks as the PG of the future here.

Kyle Lowry is the man. Steal for the Rockets.

Another deal?

When? This summer?

Personally I dont like Skip but this will help Orlando. Anthony Johnson tries but he wasnt going to cut it. You had to do something. They gave up nothing in this trade.

Rafer will help Orlando stay in contention. He isn't the shooter that Nelson is, but he is better than the alternative.

Boston and Cleveland are both hoping it will be the other team that has to knock out Orlando in the playoffs.

This better not happen, why would we let go of the guy that sets up our offense?

This trade is probably better for the Magic than Rockets, maybe the Rockets have thrown in the towel on the season or maybe they know something we don't about Brooks or Lowry.

Bad omen for Rockets fans. With McGrady hanging up his shoes this season (maybe), are they starting to dismantle?

Kyle Lowry is very good. Escape my homerism for Luther Head for second and I'll be real. Kyle Lowry is anti-Rafer. He doesn't have a great shot, but he's fantastic at penetrating and he's incredibly tough. I've seen him get slapped and mauled by big men trying to discourage him from driving but he'll go right back at it. He's a penetrate and dish guy more than a fancy pass player. He plays tough nose defense and he goes after offensive boards like a mad man. I've never seen him take a night off and he seems to be very efficient. I'd take him on my team any day of the week.

Alston was doing it well though. I don't really see a reason for the Rockets to do this.

The bulldog will be a good fit in the Rockets, IMO. He had bad luck in his first season and after the injury he didn't get consistent minutes. But when he played, he did really well.
