Rockets probably didn’t have enough to offer. With no first round pick, the best the Rockets could offer would be some sort of combination of Ariza/Beverley/Dekker/Harrell/second round picks but that wouldn’t give the Nets the immediate cap flexibility as the Pacers’ deal would. I agree that the Raptors probably should’ve been in it, but they probably didn’t want to give the #9 pick while #27 and another young player probably isn’t as enticing as the #20.

There was a good chance LaVert would have still been there at the 27th. I don’t get why Brooklyn gave up one of their best players for a guy they could have landed in the 2nd round?!? I feel like they could have got more for young.
