No draft picks. Very few trade assets. Totally capped out. Yet the Houston Rockets have once again made themselves a big story this offseason.

Resident capologist and devout Rockets fan David Weiner (Twitter | ClutchFans) joins us on the podcast to discuss all the craziness going on right now. We discuss:

  • The wild reports of James Harden-Chris Paul beefing and Paul demanding a trade.
  • The Anthony Davis trade to the Lakers.
  • The Mike D’Antoni extension (or lack thereof).
  • The draft and the Rockets’ focus on established players.
  • Jimmy Butler, his option and why a sign-and-trade is extremely unlikely
  • Potential destinations for Clint Capela and Eric Gordon (if they are even traded).
  • Free agency and possibly overlooked additions.
  • The importance of using the taxpayer MLE wisely given who they may lose
  • Is Iman Shumpert on a sign-and-trade a secret key for the Rockets?
