I think that would be where the catch comes in, someone else would need to do the salaries, but if you are getting rid of Harden you aren’t looking for a 30 year old Jrue on the cusp of his last big payday.

So my guess is they ask for Zion and probably draw a hard line and settle for Ingram and some youngins.

Which makes it a bit more tricky. Because I don’t know Jrue/Harden/Zion gets you a championship in two years, but after that you can almost guarantee Harden is probably gone for a major market. And the cost is likely most of your major assets and Ingram.

Personally I don’t do it.

The only way to make the money work for him would be sending Jrue out. I would do it, but I would expect at least 2 future 1sts from Houston for eating his contract.


Hahaha
I guess we’ll find out if Boom lurks in here

re: N/P Darryl Morey is stepping down from the Rockets.
Harden takes 22-24 shots per game, BI needs 20+, Zion also 20.

Last season with our pace we averaged 92 shots per game total, so that would leave you 27-30 shots to spread out between your other 2 starters and 5-6 bench players.

Thats not nearly enough left over, and would hinder your young players growth even more.

They would obviously have to lower their FGA, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing.

For example, in the Warriors 16-17 season the top 3 FGA from their team were:

Curry-18.3
Thompson-17.6
Durant-16.5

But would you really want to hinder their growth by taking the ball out of their hands more? You want a 19 and 23 year old to get more touches, not give them less.

re: N/P Darryl Morey is stepping down from the Rockets.
And that team only took 87 shots per game, so you probably can up that total a tad(they also were blowing teams out and sitting in the fourth, for instance only Klay Thompson was barely in the top 30 for minutes per game, SC and KD were 37 and 38th in the league in minutes per game).

I think it can work, but do you sell the farm for a two-year window? I personally don't.

No, I can't stand watching Harden play.

I was just playing devil's advocate that it could work with Ingram and Zion. I don't think adding a ball dominant guard to this team is a bad thing. We need someone who can efficiently run a half court offense.

Looks like Fertitta will go cheap, promoting Rafael Stone to GM, and rumors are John Lucas is the frontrunner for HC.
