Stein and many others have this:

"Sources say Rockets holding out Marcus Morris tonight as they decide between two different deals. Deadline is now just under 20 hours away."

Maybe we give up Fab and Barbosa? Plus one of those useless Sacto picks?

Morris could give us minutes up front, I think. He's sort of a poor man's Sully.

Fab,  injured guy, useless pick.

Why do they want this for a blossoming player? Suns want picks not junk, imo. Why else would they give him up.?.???..?

You're thinking of Markieff.

But anyway, maybe we give up a real 2nd then. I think Fab has a little bit of value, and Houston needs to unload those PFs at some point.

Houston is always active.  Never a dull moment in that front office.  I'd be interested, depending on the price, of course.

I was with you 100% up until the words "Royce White" (who I wanted us to draft, I am embarrassed to admit).

I think they'll keep Jones and Smith. Morris seems like more of a tweener.

He has three point range, but can't rebound.
