looks like houston got 2 new picks ... a first and a second round rookie in return ... nothing more ...

Is anyone else surprised to see Hakeem leave?

He seemed like the type of player to stick it out and take a pay cut for the team.

At least Houston got something in return. We couldn't even do that with Booth.

Olajuwon's agent said that the Rockets' money offers were fine, but he just wanted to go to a contender.

Oh, he didn't want a starting job and money for a team that won't make the playoffs? LOL. I just had to get that jab in on Booth.

He could do worse than Toronto--that's a nice little pick up for them.

The only thing I don't like about it, is that this opens the door for the Rockets to get Marc Jackson.

The 2 players of Hakeem and Vince together look kind of crazy to me. It's like 2 generations and 2 completely different players.
