CSNNELess than a week after being traded from the Celtics to the Rockets in the Courtney Lee deal, E’Twaun Moore was waived by his new team according to Rockets.com.
Moore was one of the standouts on the Celtics' Orlando and Las Vegas Summer League teams prior to being moved last Thursday. He averaged 12.0 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 2.8 assists in five games in Orlando and 17.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 2.0 assists in two games in Las Vegas.
According to multiple reports, the Chicago Bulls are rumored to be interested in Moore.Moore's non guaranteed contract made him desirable to the Rockets, who did not want to take on payroll to trade Courtney Lee. By NBA standards, Moore was making practically nothing, so I could of seen the Rockets holding on to him, but I guess they didn't see a future in him.
The trade could end up being a blessing in disguise for Moore as he can now go to a team of his choosing. Stellar Summer League stats rarely mean anything, but E'Twaun ...

"Linsanity" took everyone by storm last season -- Jeremy Lin included.
Say what you want about Lin's basketball potential, but the Harvard product is one of the more grounded players in the NBA. So, despite his controversial exit from New York, which was the subject of much debate, he's willing to look back candidly at what has been a crazy year.
The Rockets have been at the front of the offseason. Whether it was getting involved in Dwight Howard rumors or going after and signing Jeremy Lin, you cannot fault Daryl Morey for going out there and being active. Houston has been a middle of the Western Conference team for the better part of a decade. Always good enough to compete for a Playoff spot, never quite good enough to...
Linsanity was huge because Jeremy Lin was balling out. There may have been a perfect storm in play, he may not ever be able to specifically duplicate that run, and history may tell us that Mike D'Antoni had a bigger hand in orchestrating the whole affair than anybody's ever given him credit for. But Jeremy Lin is still a good player. Maybe not an All Star, but certainly not...
What is it with the Rockets offering three years and $25 million to players? OK, so the NBA's rules and pay structure obviously have something to do with the symmetrical numbers. But it's still a little interesting that, just after nabbing Jeremy Lin from the Knicks when New York declined to match, the Rockets may be picking up another player whose former team won't match...
The Celtics announced today that newly acquired guard Courtney Lee will be wearing the number 11 this upcoming season. Shortly after that, Lee tweeted this:
Danny Rumph was a teammate of Lee’s who died after collapsing on the basketball court. Here’s more:
Daniel E. Rumph II, a rising, basketball star who attended Western Kentucky University with extreme hope for...
Courtney Lee is one of the C’s most recent additions. He joins a long list of Celtic Sneakerheads. A brief glance of Courtney’s Twitter Account (@courtneylee2211) shows Courtney has an affinity for high end Nikes, Air Jordans, and designer label kicks. Courtney rated the highly coveted Galaxy Foamposite as “1 of my top 5 fav shoes”.

The Houston Rockets finally have a center again.
The Chicago Bulls will not match Houston's three-year, $25 million offer sheet on Omer Asik, a person with direct knowledge of the decision said Tuesday on condition of anonymity because Chicago had not officially announced the move.
Asik averaged 3.1 points, 5.3 rebounds and one block in 66 games last season. He helped Turkey...
HOUSTON (AP) -- The Houston Rockets finally have a center again.
The Chicago Bulls will not match Houston's three-year, 25 million offer sheet on Omer Asik, a person with direct knowledge of the decision said Tuesday on condition of anonymity because Chicago had not officially announced the move.

The Celtics offseason of reloading is continuing, and every passing day, the C’s look like serious contenders to knock off the Heat. They almost did it with a busted up, old and injured roster last season. With the addition of Lee and all the other players they have added, the Celtics look like NBA odds favorites for next season. Even though the Heat will still be the favorites...
Courtney Lee wore No. 5 on his Houston Rockets jersey the last two seasons, but the newly acquired Celtics guard could not wear that number with Boston, since it belongs to Kevin Garnett. Lee's previous number with the New Jersey Nets, No. 6, was unavailable, too, as it belongs to a certain bejeweled center from Celtics lore. Lee therefore chose to wear No. 11 and tweeted his...
