NBA free agency: Rockets, Reggie Williams agree to 2-year contract By Scott Schroeder  @ScottSchroeder on Jul 10 2013, 4:55p +

Reggie Williams will move on from the Charlotte Bobcats to the Houston Rockets on a two-year deal, according to ESPN's Marc Stein. The contract will pay him considerably less than the two-year, $5 million deal he had with the Bobcats, however, as Stein reports it's for the veteran's minimum and the second year is a team option. The 26-year-old swingman wasn't able to get drafted out of VMI despite leading the NCAA in scoring for his junior and senior years. After spending a year playing in France, however, Williams was able to parlay some NBA Development League success into a nice little NBA career. The former third-round pick in the D-League has started 32 games of the 177 games he's played in the past four years, splitting time between the Golden State Warriors and Bobcats. Unfortunately for him, however, his scoring average has gone down all four seasons and he was on the floor for less than ten minutes per game last season for the struggling Bobcats.

Houston Projected as 1st Seed By Wages of Wins

A lot of my own predictions are based on Wins Produced. Think of it as chemistry's STP. All conditions being perfect, all coaches being rational with playtime, their numbers are usually very correct. The predicted 63.7 wins is if Mchale plays his best guy the most. Using my one year sample of Mchale--his predicted win rate is -5. Out of the maximum amount of wins, he will lose 5 wins. Probably by playing Casspi 30% more often. 59 wins aint bad.

The Houston Salary Cap as Of Right Now 6/7/2013

You can waive Anderson and Olbrecht and maybe get under the new cap. But even with Dwight, the Rockets are just over 2 million dollars over the cap. there should be another move coming soon. Maybe with a MLE.

Dwight Watch 2013: Larry Coon Capologist Edition

The interview covers the technical aspects of 99% of the Dwight possibilities included the Dwight/CP3 combinations. The highest chance of CP3 and Dwight being together are solely the Hawks. There is a higher chance of them playing separately, however. The interview boils down the technical cap aspects of all the trades. If the rockets want Howard, they may want to help the Clippers/Celtics trade (at a discount). I also think the Clips/celts trade are a GO.

New Zealand's Tom Abercrombie to trial with Rockets

New Zealand Breakers star swingman Tom Abercrombie is taking the first step in what he hopes will be his NBA journey. The athletic 25 year-old is making his way to Chicago where he will prepare himself for trials with several NBA clubs. Abercrombie's Chicago-based agent has lined up mini-camp workouts with the Houston Rockets, Milwaukee Bucks, San Antonio Spurs and Dallas Mavericks. Whilst there, the 6'6" Tall Black will have the opportunity to show off his skills, with a both short-term and longer-term view to making an impression with scouts in those franchises

Very good read. The only two playoff caliber teams with cap space are the Rockets and the Hawks. Clipper have cap space if CP3 leaves---a 50/50 affair.

Jalen Rose explains why he believes that Dwight is going to Houston based on his own experience as an FA and by reading into Kobe's recent statements about Dwight's free agency.

Atlanta Hawks Frontrunners in Dwight Sweepstakes

My current probability tier matrix (Dwight Sweepstakes) 1. Lakers 2. Hawks, Clippers 3. Rockets, Mavs. With this bit of news, the Hawks get the same halfstep i gave to the Clippers. Danny Ferry is severely underrated as a wheeler dealer.
