The one good thing about this Rockets losing skid...

...is that it might motivate Morey to make a trade before the deadline. Josh Smith yes please.

Acquiring Josh Smith is an idea to consider, but there isn't a lot of incentive to trade for him. He's a Free Agent anyway. The Rockets could sign him with their cap room without giving up any trade assets.

Only real problem with that is the possibility he ends up signing with Dallas/Memphis/some other team during the offseason. If we acquire him now (probably for some of our redundant PFs), he'll already be settled in Houston and will probably stick around.

I guess that's true, because the Rockets would have his Bird Rights and could give him the best contract. I don't know what would be a fair deal though. The Rockets won't want to offer too much since he can be signed anyway.

Not really a big fan of Josh Smith. I acknowledge his value and understand that he'd be nice to have, but I'm not sure if acquiring him turns the team into a contender.

I love the Patriots more than my family!

I understand that sentiment. Unfortunately the other names Rockets fans like to throw out there are very unrealistic.

I think it's better than any other option out there imo. Not everyone can get a CP3, Lebron or Kevin Durant.

Getting Josh Smith and hoping that he can be a legit #2 option to Harden is a good idea. Plus the defense would be better with Smith and Asik in the paint.

Yeah, but does Smith even turn the team into a top 3 seed in the West? I understand that we probably won't get Love or Aldridge, but I'd hate to trade away promising young prospects and picks for a guy that won't even help us get out of the second round.

Unless you think one of those prospects can be better than Smith (I'm not sure why you would), then there would be no reason not to pull the trigger on a trade for him. As long as it isnt a ridiculous amount of assets in the trade, Morey would be foolish not to do a trade. Assets are meant to to be flipped for upgrades.
