Exclamation ESPN: Juwan Howard for Mike James, Justin Reed

Rockets acquire Mike James from the Timberwolves in exchange for Juwan Howard. We get an average Point Guard who can make his case here in Houston. He have an offensive built team, and luckily we came across this guy. Despite his poor season this year, he can be a strong back-up off the bench, if not, a starter.

Quote:
The Minnesota Timberwolves and Houston Rockets, who have been discussing a Mike James-for-Juwan Howard swap in one form or another since the February trade deadline, have agreed in principle to finally complete that deal this month, ESPN.com has learned.
An announcement of the trade's completion could be made as early as this week, according to NBA front-office sources.

The holdup stems from the possibility that another player or two could be added to the deal, sources say. The teams, though, have verbally agreed to a straight-up exchange of James for Howard at the very least.

The Timberwolves beat out Houston for James' free-agent signature last summer because of their willingness to include a trade kicker in the well-traveled point guard's four-year, $23.4 million contract, but the acquisition was questioned from the start after Minnesota landed Randy Foye in the 2006 draft.

I couldn't wait to get rid of Juwan. I don't care what anyone says...this guy was sorry, slow and couldn't really do anything effective to warrant making 7 million a year.

I like the trade. Mike and Tracy seem to be a good combo in the backcourt.

Deal was accepted already. I'm pretty sure the Wolves can't back out of it.

This trade was a mistake! It's ok to trade Juwan but for Mike James..Is he going to come of the bech, cause Rafer is way more better and now Rockets are in real need of a pf. Could've traded Howard for a another pf.

Yes we need a PF but we can still get one we have the money and trading pieces. I am a bit apprehensive about James and how well he will perform but seeing he is in his home town again and most likely coming off the bench I am not too worried.
