This is a good trade for the Rockets. I think Robinson has a much higher ceiling than Pat. TRob is a great athlete, good rebounder and finisher, also very exciting to watch. Asik and T-Rob will be a beast rebounding/hustle play combo. He could turn out to be a great player if the Rockets keep him and use him correctly.

I like what they're doing. They're loading up on young talent on cheap contracts and they still have the capspace to land some veterans. I'm sure Houston is considered an attractive place since they are a young up and coming team with a solid foundation. This has to be the fastest rebuilt I've ever seen.

I don't think T-Rob is gonna be a star in this league. Maybe a JJ Hickson type of player.

Houston slightly won this trade. But its not rapage by the Rockets.

Don't let PPat's size fool you. He's got great range, and looks really strong, but is pretty allergic to rebounds. We were all hoping that Patterson could be a great POWER forward but if anything, he's a downgraded version of Scola.

Although I don't like losing T-Rob he's been really overrated on this thread. I can't see him starting in the NBA on any team anytime soon. But I could be wrong.

Hard to overrate a guy who was considered a bust before he was drafted by most people here. Most people thought he was a late lottery pick at best.

Well when people say he's going to be starting tomorrow for the Rockets, he's a beast, he's the best rebounder, etc, etc. THAT would all be overrating him.

Damn I haven't read that on here anywhere. Who's gonna score in the paint for us though? I guess Asik will be the #1 option down there. Can T-Rob post up?

The reason people are high on the trade for him is because he has a pretty good chance to fit into the Rockets system. He will be a high energy rebounder/screener who will get to run the floor more on the Rockets. Its a scenario where he can play to his strengths while having time to develop his weaknesses.

Didn't realize that the Rockets traded away all the PFs. T-Rob should actually get some playing time, maybe he will get a chance to develop. Good for him.

The best part about this trade is that the Kings only added to their 1000 guards when they should have been trying to clear the glut instead they added to it

Positions or players on the court weren't a factor, just money.
