Totally agree. Itís asinine. But they got under the luxury tax line with this trade. Not sure if they couldíve with matching salaries and keeping Prince. Probably couldíve found a way. Whatís bizarre is the Pacers most certainly wouldíve given them other assets for Levert along with Oladipo. Maybe they plan to try to re-sign him. I read that they canít trade Oladipo until March 4.

I truly donít understand flipping Levert and Allen for nickles on the dollar. They got a Milwaukee 1st in the late 20ís and expiring Oladipo? And they got off the Prince $. That has to be it. Fertita didnít want to pay any tax.

The money is the only thing that makes sense for the Rockets. In which case, man, sucks to be a Rockets fan. There is NOTHING worse in sports than a cheapskate owner. That's a virtual guarantee that your team will never be relevant.

So apparently the Rockets owner didn't take the Ben Simmons deal because of a grudge with Morey.

The Nets have now acquired all three types of Brooklyn guy; a weirdly skinny guy, a guy with a huge beard, and a guy who’s obsessed with astrology and conspiracy theories.

If Nellie had offered Steph Curry for Matt Carroll, would Cuban have taken it?

What kind of question is that are you saying Ben Simmons is Matt Carroll? Most are criticizing Houston for not getting Simmons.

I think that's FreshJive's point, although he may correct me if I'm wrong. Cuban and Nellie hated each other's guts by the end (they probably still do,) but I seriously doubt Cuban would ever let that stop him from acquiring a star.

Well I still don't get his point then because I'm not the one "reporting" they wouldn't do it because the owner didn't want to deal with Morey. CBSSports and possibly others are. So he would need to take it up with them I'm just the messenger.

Because he asked a condesending question directed to me. Are you his interpreter?

How is it condescending? Seems like a hypothetical that I thought was interesting. I don't sense a bit of condescension.

I'm a poster on a public forum reading the thing that he said publicly. As EL said, it appeared to be a hypothetical. If there was any stink on it, it seemed to be directed at the Houston Rockets. Not at you.

Significant discussion on league's call with general managers today about expanding rosters by allowing a third two-way contract slot this season, sources tell ESPN. That'll have to be worked out with NBPA, but there's momentum toward it.

It was just a joke/hypothetical, directed at anyone who reads it. Obviously, Nellie wouldn't offer that, and Cuban would accept it, but the point was that bridges can be burned and Cuban and Nellie probably weren't interested in negotiating in good faith on a trade at the time. I'm not surprised that Fertitta didn't want to deal with Morey, even if it benefited his team, and might have been the rational thing to do.

Also, Spiral has my permission to act as my interpreter.
