Where do the Rockets go from here? Well, they settled on free agent Samuel Dalembert, a kindhearted soul who might well protect the basket better than any big man they've had since Olajuwon.

How it helps: The [Rockets] will have a bit more cap space than they expected. But it would help a lot more if they could go back in time and use the amnesty rule on Tracy McGrady. How it hurts: The Rockets watched many of their competitors receive a mulligan on bad contracts, but they don't have any of their own. Plus, based on past history, the $3 million annual limit on putting cash in trades will hurt Houston as much as any team except perhaps Portland. Immediate impact (this season): Houston can pursue free agent Nene and amnesty Hasheem Thabeet if it succeeds. Otherwise, the Rockets' main motivation remains packaging assets to get a perennial All-Star via trade, meaning little change to their blueprint. Long-term impact (future seasons): As a high-revenue team that won't pay tax this year or next, Houston may be able to spend freely just as its competition needs to tighten the purse strings to avoid repeat-offender status. The Rockets will hang on to their amnesty to guard against a sudden decline from Luis Scola, who is 31 and has at least three years and $28 million guaranteed left on his deal.

First and foremost, on behalf of the entire Houston Rockets organization, I want to thank you for your loyalty and support. Our fans and partners are the lifeblood of our team, and any success we achieve as an organization is a direct result of your passion and commitment. Unfortunately, negotiations between the NBA and NBA Players Association have not produced a new collective bargaining agreement to date, and the league has taken the difficult but necessary step to postpone player training camps and cancel preseason games scheduled through October 15. It is the top priority for us during this time to keep you informed and aware of any related developments and will continue to provide updates on the situation as new information is made available. We want to assure you that all the league's efforts are focused on reaching an agreement that provides a sustainable business model that allows all 30 teams to be able to compete for a championship, fairly compensates the players, and ensures a world-class experience for our fans. Thank you again for your patience, support and continued loyalty. Sincerely, Tad Brown Chief Executive Officer Houston Rockets Clutch City Sports & Entertainment [Glad I wasted my minute. Give us something to work with, perhaps a deal. Message to the NBA and the NBAPA: stop playing the PR game. Nobody cares. We want basketball. -- Tom]
