But I still don't feel like Houston should be "shedding salary" mode. No reason to give up on the season yet. All they need is the spring miracle of healthy Tmac and Yao, and I still have faith in their personnel to challenge anyone in the playoffs.

i mean we could unload mike james salary in the offseason. not necessarily james+bonzi for jax

Yeah, I understand. And it could happen. I'm just saying right now is when teams vying for the playoffs are willing to take on bad contracts for their playoff push. This kind of deal would be harder to pull off in the off-season. But this isn't a good deal for the Rockets, so I suppose that doesn't really matter.

Bobby Jackson is shooting 200% from the field right now against the Mavs. Never mind that it takes him like 6 seconds to t up a shot and his form looks like it really hurts his old fragile body, nobody's getting out there and he's drilling them.

It's nothing but a damn salary dump...

Quote:
Jonathan - have you heard anything about the ESPN rumored deal of Wells + Bonzi to the Hornets for Bobby Jackson and another player? If so, who would that other player be? Is this a salary dump?

(Yeah, I have something written on that, too. There are a lot of moving parts, but Jackson for James are the primaries. The Rockets would rather Kirk Snyder be in the deal than Wells, but they want Jackson to have a veteran backup point, and to have one less season on his contract than they have on James'. Adelman thinks a great deal of Jackson. The way I worded it in my story is that it has been tabled until tomorrow, but they are still talking to someone tonight, so things could change. It's not something to trigger a different deal, though. -- Jonathan)

So no, it sounds like this isn't a move to position ourselves for Miller or anybody else............just looks like a damn salary dump. Right in the middle of a playoff run, Houston just wants to dump a solid rotation player and send him to a divisional rival that has no freaking bench....just to shed one year off a damn contract......WTF are they thinking.

I hope not also.

I mean, who would take Bonzi's minutes? It's not even a matter of anyone just really not wanting Bonzi to get traded. It's all about who is going to take his minutes that's worth a damn. Novak? Snyder? Chuck Hayes?

I'm reading that the Rockets don't want Rasual Butler because of the luxury tax. Man, whatever. They better take him and give him Bonzi's minutes or our bench is going to suck.

I must admit, a Jazz fan, this pleases me. Doesn't make a lick of sense to me from an unobjective basketball fan stantpoint, looking at it from Houston's perspective.

B-Jax's contract is NOT expiring. It's 2 years instead of Mike's 3, but that's just a horrible reason to drop off a bench contributor to a team in your conference. I'm really pissed.

Julian Wright's the only prospect that would make this trade OK.
