        I’m used to disappointment, it’s ok. I remember reading the Knicks were getting Jackson and a 1st in the stump jr deal and ended up with amudson, ect. I do like cannon as a piece though.

    I don’t get this deal for either team, really. Trying to figure the teams’ thinking. Was it’s main purpose just to get Houston some breathing room away from the hard cap? I guess there’d be some value to either team in Prigioni’s essentially non-guaranteed salary next year… Why didn’t Houston protect those 2nd-rounders, seems like a lot for a 40-year-old. And what’s NY’s rationale? It’s hard to argue this makes them worse for tanking if not younger, and it only increases their luxury tax bill. Huh. At least they found a use for Felton’s trade exception.

      I think in Houston’s case, it was about acquiring a back up PG. The Philly trade left them in need. Prigs fills a hole.
