    Houston is in big trouble.

    Losing Asik and Lin, they've actually become worse.

    They have about a day or so left to use any cap space.

    They can't make offers to restricted free agents.

    Sign and trade for Parsons is not possible.

    Here is the list of possibilities of UFA:
    Melo
    Ariza
    Deng
    Marion
    Turner
    Stephenson
    Mo Williams
    Blatche
    Humphries
    Mario Chalmers
    Pierce
    Okafor
    Sessions

    Too funny.

    Things really blew up in Morey's face..... all because of Cuban. LOL

    Is there a deadline date to sign free agents? Also why can't they offer contracts to restricted free agents?

    No deadline for free agents but the clock is ticking on the offer sheet to Parsons from Dallas.

    If they match it, *poof*, no more cap space.

    True! Poor Rockets. That's what they get. The only good names on that list you wrote are Melo, Ariza and Deng and I don't think they get either of them. For sure not Melo. Even if they got Deng or Ariza that would do nothing for them. At this point in their careers Parsons is better to me.

    Why can't they make offers for RFA's?

    If they get the offer in before they match the Parsons' offer sheet, I assume you're implying they can use the cap space they have on a RFA?

    It would be extremely risky because if the team matches, then they lose the cap space and the time would have elapsed on Parsons' offer sheet.

    Mark Cuban is a master troll.

    They should just throw too much money at Stephenson or Deng, get him to sign immediately, then match Parson.

    Cuban is definitely to blame, but am I wrong in assuming that it might be awkward for Parsons for at least the first few times he talks to Morey? He really screwed them by signing that sheet..

    Morey should know better than anyone it is a business.

    Who knows how the negotiations went?

    Maybe Rockets "only" offering $10M?

    Parsons or his agent would be nuts to turn down an extra $16M over 3 years.

    If Morey begrudges a guy taking a guaranteed contract that increases his salary more than 10-fold over the previous year, he's just as childish as I've always assumed him to be.

    Why is this Cuban's fault? He's got a need for a 3 and Parsons is young and good - albeit not deserving of the max and earning 5M more per year than Dirk. It's business. Let's not forget that Morey both signed Lin and Asik to poison pill contracts. It seems to be his style. Kinda weird that Houston is being treated like a 2nd-tier team by free-agents.

    It's only a business when the other guy gets screwed.

    I'm starting to think that the way Houston is put together is quite dysfuntional. Both Harden and Howard are not good fits.

    I don't think the Rockets were a serious contender for Melo though. I think w/ Melo it's either NY, LA or CHI. But yeah Houston is in big trouble now even if they somehow re-sign Parsons. Who's going to play PG for them?? losing Asik is also huge. He's a great player. They didn't even get anything back in return for him.

    Look forward to Melo and Bargs working the triangle in NY.

    Wonder if front office failures upset the troops on the floor... also depending on what happens to Parsons.

    Of all superstar players, Melo is most likely to sign for the money. Selfish player. Love, too
