Kendrick Perkins will not play tonight against the Houston Rockets. The team says he sprained his right knee in yesterday's practice.

Not sure why Phoenix would want Perk over Gortat.  He's a worse player and is paid more than Gortat.

I'd just about guarantee Perkins is traded by tomorrow's deadline. I also guarantee they get nothing close to Jeff Green's value.

Trading Perkins from OKC would screw them up as much as we got screwed when WE traded Perk

I'd be willing to risk it... they already know they aren't a match for Mia, so even if it doesn't work out quickly they can try next season, then if not they could trade Gortat.

They really want to beat Mia, even in regular season games but can't, it's time for a change, he is the weak link of the starters/key guys.

Perk wasn't the difference in us not winning a championship when we traded him.

if they get Gortat back, it won't be so bad. They get a reliable scoring center back and a big contract out
