Does Houston want to Blow It Up?


Can anyone offer insight on the Rockets' situation? I've heard the Lowry and Martin stories where they are not seeing eye to eye with McHale? If they're willing to get rid of Martin and Lowry, and still like Gasol, I think getting them involved with the Lakers would be ideal for everyone.

If Houston is on thin ice with the heart of their offense in Martin and Lowry, then a three-team trade might be nice for all parties. (I'm no salary cap guru, so I just put this through the infamous ESPN trade machine to see if it would work, and it does)

Orlando sends: Dwight to the Lakers and JRich and Justin Harper (or any rookie or soph) to the Rockets

Houston sends: Kyle Lowry and Jeremy Lamb (and maybe Royce White if Hennigan can work it...but doubtful) to the Magic and Kevin Martin and Louis Scola to the Lakers.

Lakers send: Bynum and World Peace to the Magic and Gasol and Josh McRoberts to Houston.

so...

Magic get: Lowry, Lamb, (maybe another Rookie from HOU), Bynum, and World Peace...Pretty good deal if you ask me.

Lakers get: Dwight, Kevin Martin and Luis Scola to pair with Kobe...That lineup will give the Thunder a run for their money.

Rockets get: Gasol (to pair with Asik forming a nice tandem, and someone who Rockets have always liked), Jrich (who would fit nicely with Dragic or Lin) any of Magic's rookies or soph's, and a solid role player and expiring contract in McRoberts...

I don't know, maybe I'm crazy (probably), but we all know the Lakers will spend the money, so there's no need to worry about taking on contracts for good players like Martin and Scola. So I guess it all comes back to the Houston situation; anyone familiar with it?
