Had to cut your very detailed look at Houston’s salary situation to fit it into the chat space. I have heard that the Rockets want to keep Martin, who has value as an expiring deal, but I do believe, despite what’s being said, that if Orlando wanted him, the Rockets would cash him in. I don’t think the Magic want Martin, though. They want young players and draft picks, which is why the Rockets have accumulated so many inexpensive players. The Lakers have interest in J-Rich as well as Howard, so I believe this will eventually turn into a 3-team deal where Houston lands Bynum. We’re waiting for the 30-day mark to arrive – 30 days after all of the rookies were signed they are eligible to be traded. Do you think that the Rockets have enough to give and take in order to acquire Dwight Howard? If not, do you think they will turn to the Lakers and try to acquire Andrew Bynum in a 3 team trade with the Magic?
I think the Rockets need LA to take on some salary, and I also think the Rockets would be better off with Bynum, who is more likely to re-sign in Houston.
