The Toronto Raptors obtained guard Kyle Lowry from the Houston Rockets in trade that sends forward Gary Forbes and a protected future first-round draft pick to the Rockets, reported. Lowry averaged 15 points, seven assists, five rebounds, two steals and two 3-pointers per game prior through the All-Star break, but saw his season end with an abdominal injury that required surgery. Forbes averaged 6.6 points and 2.1 rebounds this past season

Grading the Deal: Raptors acquire Kyle Lowry

The past 48 hours have been a mad dash of information.  The funny part of all this being that it won’t become official until July 11th, leaving open the possibility of some Carlos Boozer-esque situations.  Now I don’t have any insight on that but I like Kevin Garnett said, “anything is possible.” Toronto made moves to acquire a rising point guard in...

Five for Friday: Rockets roster turnover

Five things I'm thinking about this weekend while teaching myself to spell "Motiejunas." 1. Something that seems true (and totally is): You did not want Kyle Lowry on the Rockets anyway. Usually a good player. Sometimes a great player. Often a malcontent. (Always beefy). You cannot win if your point guard is a malcontent. It just won't work. It's like trying...

Rockets' bad luck just won't run out

Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey is a numbers guy, an MIT guy, a probabilities guy. MIT is the kind of place where you can learn to predict the next face card, not hope for it. Luck is just nonsense to a guy like Morey, but then there is this: Last fall, the Rockets had guard Jeremy Lin on their roster, but they cut him because they already had Kyle Lowry and Goran Dragic...

Jeremy Lin Considering Offer Sheet From Rockets

Jeremy Lin was with the Rockets during last preseason, but was behind Kyle Lowry and Goran Dragic on the depth chart.

Jeremy Lin Agrees to $30M Offer Sheet With Rockets

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Jeremy Lin has agreed to terms on a deal with the Houston Rockets. After taking some time to “discuss the parameters” and “structure” of the proposed offer sheet, Lin has verbally agreed to a 4-year/$30M contract.  The offer sheet is a 3-year deal with a team option in the fourth, and is expected to backload money in the deal. 

Jeremy Lin to head back to Houston?

When the word trickled out that Jeremy Lin could sign an offer sheet with the Houston Rockets, I was reminded of a quote from the movie Pulp Fiction. Please click the link below to read the rest of this feature.

Yao Ming Hungers, Earthling

WA! I’m not sure I have a favorite part of this Chinese ad for Mini Oreos. I’ve narrowed it down to three things: 1. Yao Ming needing a moment to process the fact that a child has tricked him, then mumble-laughing about it. 2. The idea that Yao could probably throw that kid in the air and eat him like a Mini Oreo. 3. The weird sexual tension at the end. I think it’s the...
