Default Woj: Rockets looking to trade trob to free up cap space for Dwight

http://sports.yahoo.com/news/nba--ho...215915027.html

Quote:
The Houston Rockets are determined to trade forward Thomas Robinson – the fifth pick in the 2012 NBA draft – to create salary-cap space for the pursuit of Los Angeles Lakers' free-agent superstar Dwight Howard, league sources told Yahoo! Sports

If they are able to move Robinson, they could potentially offer Dwight $20.5 million annually. Woj is also reporting that dwight is indeed intrigued by the Rockets, citing Harden and Parsons as big reasons why. Were still about a month away from when teams can talk to free agents. Get ready for a roller coaster, ISH.

Sucks for T-Rob... 3 teams before heading into his 2nd season.

This would be a good move for Dwight and the Rockets. I don't think he can handle the heat in LA. Plus being in Houston with Kevin McHale in his ear every day might be just what he needs.

Why did Morey trade for Robinson in the first place?

Should have kept Patterson and Morris.

Lol, Knicks will give them their 2nd rounder (via Okc) for next season in exchange for T-Rob.

Is TRob a bad player or is are these just two really unfortunate circumstances?

Doubt it. They brought him there for more than just basketball reasons. Asik will be moved. Rockets will be sorry.

yeah, it was two bad situations for t rob. Houston was in the playoff race, so they really didnt want to try to develop him during that time. He'll most likely go to a non play off team, maybe even the suns, where hopefully he'll get consistent minutes next season.

Got him as an asset like all the other young guys he's been piling up.

Too young for the Knicks and they won't give him away.

Hahaha, wish we could give them our 24th pick for him but can't trade away picks in consecutive seasons.

Did McHale even give the dude a chance? I don't think I've seen him play in uniform once. They traded some good players for him too.

They're actually looking to trade him to a team that can absorb salary. They pretty much want nothing back but cap space. So i dont think Knicks could have traded for him, regardless. Most likely, a lottery team will pick him up IE Suns, Cats.
