Default Exception money

The Rockets still have not used their exception(s), and they still need someone to log more minutes behind Yao than Dikembe can play regularly.

Checking free agents, there is not much there. Beggars can't be choosers and even CD is not dumb enough to start the season without someone else inside to take big minutes if/when Yao bumps his toe, again.

Who will it be? Toni Kukoc? Jake Voskuhl? Scot Pollard? Tony Battie?

If we had any trade bait, it might even be a restricted free agent like Drew Gooden.

Please don't tell me Cato may be back.

They used most of their exception money to sign v-span and j lucas III, so they have a little less to work with than you think. Also don't expect CD to spend a lot on players he doesn't want around long term they are preparing for the free agent market of the nexct off season.

Default Center

Then, if Lucas and V Span took the exception money, they are screwed without another backup center. Someone else has to play 8 min a game plus play 30-36 per game when Yao cannot play. This is in addition to Dikembe.

For some reason, I was under the impression that the exceptions were for free agents, not draft picks. So Vspan wouldn't have used any of them, nor would Novak. No clue if I'm right, but halfway certain I've read/seen/heard that somewhere.
