The Rockets are taking on water fast and if you were running the ship what would you do? The rules to this are simple, put forth trades that make at least some sense for both teams (you have to explain your reasoning), the player has to have been mentioned in trade rumors (or at least it makes sense for his team to trade him), and the salaries need to match up. Detail it below... let's have some fun with this trade deadline.
My dream semi reasonable trades after the jump:Josh Smith for Budinger, Scola, and Morris
Why ATL does it: Young talent and to get rid of a disgruntled player
Why Houston does it: Another almost all star to couple with Lowry.
Al Jefferson for Hill, Thabeet, Williams
Why Utah does it: Clear the way for Kanter while maintaining front court depth. All the contracts are expiring, so they also gain cap space.
Why Houston does it: Another almost all star
Houston ends up
Toss around picks if need be, bam, perennial contender.. Okay, you guys are up.
