    My MELO prediction, and how it will impact the C's

    DA and Morey spent all of last season on the phone with one another.


    DA badly wants Chandler Parsons.  And while Morey likes Rondo, Morey loves MELO.


    Is it any coincidence that Hou drafted Capela (a player high on the C's draft board) AND Nick Johnson (a player the C's were considering purchasing a 2nd rd pick so that they could draft him)??


    Morey has already begun the process of clearing space for a big FA like Melo, he let Asik go for pennies on the dollar.


    Next up- Carmelo Anthony.  I think Hou is the front runner for Melo.  I think Harden and Howard will be much more appealing to Melo than a paper meche version of Derek Rose and Joakim Noah.  Last year Hou shocked everyone when they landed Howard, and this year I think they'll surprise us once again after they lure Melo.


    To get Melo, Hou will need to part ways with Lin.  And they probably won't want to pay Parsons they money he deserves, to back up Melo and come off the bench.  Enter Boston-


    Boston wouldn't have to move Rondo.  But Boston would have to accept Jeremy Lin.  Lin's contract would give DA an opportunity to finally use that 10.3 mil TPE.


    So basically I think Hou will probably win the Melo sweepstakes, and then look for DA and his plethora of assets for help in making room for him. 


    To Houston- the 10.3 mil TPE, Bogans?, and any other necessary fillers


    To Boston- Parsons, Capela, and of course Lin


    The above pieces are of course just the framework.  Lin may even require a 3rd team.  But if Morey does win the Melo sweepstakes as I except him to, plan on Houston immediately calling Boston for help with making it happen.

    I like the plan..........and Capela could play for us right away.

    I think we need to get under the cap to use the TPE, however.  Right now, we are still over the cap.

    I was thinking the TPE, Anthony, Bogans, Johnson and maybe Fav (if not guaranteed).  Anthony could back up Howard, Bogans, Johnson and Fav could all be cut........and with Lin and Asik gone, that's plenty of room for Melo.

     

    I, however, think both he and James will stay where they are..............but I do like your idea very much!

    Paging Employee 8, Dr. 8 we need your assistance.

    Would the TPE work in the above scenario with Chandler Parsons?

    I've researched his much: "There's a moratorium on transactions that ends on the stroke of midnight on July 10th and the TPE expires on July 12th. Ainge will have two days to work his phone or he loses it."

    1.  Do you have a source for your assumptions below?

    "Is it any coincidence that Hou drafted Capela (a player high on the C's draft board) AND Nick Johnson (a player the C's were considering purchasing a 2nd rd pick so that they could draft him)??"

    2.  Beverly is NOT the PG Houston wants to help lead an elite team.  Rondo will need to be part of any deal bringing Parsons to the Cs IMO.

    In response to rameakap's comment:

    The Rockets save some cash to go after Anthony and add a backup center to Howard with Asik gone more deserving of the 13-15 minutes available behind Dwight.

    They get themselves to around 45 million in space committed to next season so they can sign Anthony to a deal starting around 18 million a season.

    Boston gets an athletic young shot blocker they can let develop overseas a year and hope turns into a Ibaka type player and Parsons, a scoring SF that is more dependable outside shooter and day to day 15ppg player than Jeff Green (despite being a much worse defender). He is also 3+ years younger.

    I like it.

    I like it, too.  Except  - why not play Capela now?  What's the purpose of hiding him for a year?  We will stink next year.

     

    Lastly - as I wrote earlier, I think Melo re-signs with NY, and MeBron stays with MIA......SOOOOOO - would you trade Rondo for this package?  I think HOU is a likely landing spot for him.  And, if yes, would that change your thought on Capela??

    I think the whole point here would be  - we cannot have both Parsons and Green on the team.  The Rox will keep Parsons if they don't get Melo, they like him.  And, chances are they won't get Melo.  NYK, CHI and DAL are probably all ahead of HOU at this point.  I don't like HOU chances of getting Melo.  Therefore, I don't like our chances of getting Parsons.............therefore, you guys are arguing and name calling over basically nothing!

    Good rule of thumb to apply to Chandler Parsons' restricted free agency: Teams interested in Carmelo Anthony will pursue Parsons once Melo is no longer available.

    Chicago and Dallas are two prime examples, sources said, with the Mavericks in particular expected to make a strong play for the Houston swingman if they can't convince Anthony to come to Dallas.

    The Rockets, though, continue to insist that they will match any offers Parsons gets.
