    ESPN is reporting that the Houston Rockets are receiving the disabled player exception for Yao Ming.  You'll remember last season, the Rockets used that same exception granted them for Yao to acquire Trevor Ariza, whom they later dealt for Courtney Lee...
    "The disabled player exception allows the Rockets to acquire a free agent, or trade for a player without having to match salaries, up to the value of the midlevel exception (about $5.765 million)."

    "Houston must use it by January 31st or it will expire."
    As if the MeloDrama wasn't already enough to keep interest high.  Houston was reportedly interested in becoming part of the multi-team deal involving Anthony before todays news.  I wonder what impact this will have on their chances...and more importantly, I wonder how this effects the plans Cho had or has.  Maybe Houston will be that trade partner he has been seeking for the last month or so?  Aaron Brooks anyone?

    Brooks for who? One of our rookies that don't see the court, a mid-level 1st rounder, and cash?
    Yaaah, I don't think so, Houston's trying to catch us if you hadn't noticed.

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
