Source: FoxNBA sources told FOX 26 Sports the Rockets plan to give Lee the required tender by June 30 that will make him a restricted free agent, giving Houston the right to match any offer he gets.
League sources told FOX 26 the Rockets will exercise that right, matching any offer Lee gets, keeping him in a Houston uniform.
There goes the old: "move derozan to SF and sign Courtney Lee to play SG" strategy. I kind of liked this idea too.
Didn't get a QO from the Kings. If the team doesn't get a SF through the draft or trade what do you think about Greene in free agency? He's a underrated defender and very athletic.
As far as FA goes I prefer Rush but Greene would be way cheaper.
He couldn't get burn in Sacramento.
His numbers are dreadful.
He adds nothing to what the Raptors need/want.
Do you see where I'm going with this?
(all my opinion of course).
Jamal Crawford has sent his letter to Portland saying he is becoming a free agent.
Portland has about $30-32M committed to salaries next year - including 2 possible picks.
Everyone can put Batum to Toronto hopes/dreams/thoughts to rest..... it is not going to happen.
The raptors may keep their draft pick tomorrow and wait for free agency to make trades and get talent. If so, what does everyone think of Andrei Kirilenko, and Mo Williams?
In my opinion Kirilenko is just a winner. He doesn't even have to score, because he impacts the game in so many way. The Raps could use a player like this.
Mo Williams was on the verge of being an all star before Lebron left. Plus you could get him cheap.
Negs on both

Yep, their not my first option, but I could see their names in play this summer... and they could be the best value for the buck.
Colangelo's interest in AK was written about earlier in the year.
After a rocky start to his career that has been challenged by hip surgery and two trades since being selected No. 6 out of Syracuse in the 2009 NBA draft, Jonny Flynn is seeking a fresh start this offseason and just might find it with the Los Angeles Lakers.
Flynn has identified six teams -- the Lakers, Portland, Phoenix, Toronto, Chicago, and Brooklyn -- as potential destinations and should find mutual interest from the potential suitors, according to a source close to the unrestricted free agent point guard.http://espn.go.com/blog/los-angeles/...on-flynns-listFlynn, 23, averaged 13.5 points and 4.4 assists per game in his rookie season with the Minnesota Timberwolves when Sessions was his backup, but has struggled to find a consistent role since then. During the 2011 draft, he was traded from Minnesota to the Houston Rockets where he was the third point guard in coach Kevin McHale's rotation behind Kyle Lowry and Goran Dragic. Houston traded Flynn to the Portland Trail Blazers in March. Flynn backed up Raymond Felton and Nolan Smith in Portland before getting a chance at significant playing time late in the season. Flynn averaged 10.7 points and 7.3 assists when given the opportunity to play 20 minutes or more in four games for the Blazers, including 18 points and 11 assists in Portland's regular-season finale.
If his hip was healthy I'd have no problem giving Flynn a shot on a VERY cheap contract in a third PG role. He might actually surprise and earn his time at backup...... and if he doesn't, it was a minimal risk.
At 23 years of age, I think he'd be looking at long term fitting in with a team and ability to get minutes/develop/grow. I don't think the lure of playing for the Lakers or Bulls is the same for a 23 year old as it would be for a 32 year old. The Lakers and Bulls are in it to win now. I'm not sure they have the time or patience to develop what is still a prospect. Also, BC was high on him in 2009 draft and he was high on Toronto in 2009 draft. Toronto is the closest NBA team to his hometown.
I'm not trying to imply I know what is going on in his head, just attempting to give the opposite angle/view while also disagreeing with the "... just saying he wouldn't be here" and the implication that I interpreted. Toronto has a lot to offer a young PG.
If he did get $3M I have a feeling any additional years on his contract would be team options.
I'd rather take Uzoh as a third PG. Dude earned it.
