Where did he say that? The Kings made the move to cut costs. If they are going to bring in any college friend it may as well be Wall lol.
Apprently they are going to make another move theres reports involving Atlanta and maybe someone else.

What I don't get is the Kings didn't even give Robinson a chance. Why would you draft a guy at #5, not give him a chance to play, then trade him half way through his rookie season?


This trade obviously had nothing to do with trying to build a winning basketball team.


I don't think Rockets are worried about winning now. They have some nice young talent signed for the next 4-5 years, and are 1 key player away from being a perennial playoff team... which isn't easy out West.

This isn't a lateral move for the Rockets. The little money they saved gives them enough space to offer someone else a max contract this summer.

The Kings got the best player in the deal. If T-Rob becomes as good and steady as Patrick Patterson I'd be surprised.

I assume it will be T-Rob, this season when Jason Thompson got into foul trouble early he beasted quiet a few games. He will probably be the best rebounder on the Rockets squad the guy when hes into a game literally pulled more boards than in a short amount of time than Thompson, Hayes or DMC.

T-Rob has a little bit of a butter fingers issue but he makes up for it with the speed and hustle. He at times tends to rush things but hes got way better with that as the season has gone on. His jumpshot is so-so and he will be backed down easily by bigger PF's. Elite athlete and seems like he wants to get better but never got a true chance in the Kings since JT played very solid @PF.

Appreciate that bro. I can honestly say I haven't seen a single second of him playing this season lol.

Robinson is a much better rebounder than Patterson. Watching him in college, he's also better than Patterson at running the floor and plays with more energy overall. The reason why this trade hurts the Rockets isn't because of Patterson. It's the combination of both Patterson and Morris. They are losing a lot of production this year. But I don't think they care as they aren't expected to contend this year and with Robinson, he is a rookie and still has the potential to be better than Patterson.

Have you not watched Tyreke or DMC play for more than 5 minutes? Tyreke has been playing the same way since his rookie year and everyone in the league knows he's going to drive to the basket but he will still do it no matter what. Even if there are 3 guys in the paint to stop him. DMC make moronic passes that make me lose my mind ever night. Turnover after turnover just on stupid plays that a 5th grader that has learned the game wouldn't make.

I don't see him as a star either although his hustle and hops remind me a Gerald Wallace the one year we had him. This deal also reminds me of giving up Gerald Wallace in the expansion draft too, stupid.

Default Re: Thomas Robinson traded to the Rockets

This is a rather weird trade. Shouldn't the Rockets want more established guys rather than an unproven rookie? They trade away solid rotation pieces for him? Weird. Must be for cap and next year. Not bad pick up either with T-Rob.
