Why did the #Rockets let Chandler Parsons out of his contract? To get Dwight Howard, of course #NBA @SheridanBlog sheridanhoops.com/2014/09/19/sh-…

Chris Sheridan

Report: Chandler Parsons got let out of #Rockets deal as condition of Dwight Howard signing. Would be illegal if true sheridanhoops.com/2014/09/19/sh-…

Chris Sheridan

Harden and Howard weren't enough for the Rockets, but after missing on Chris Bosh, how do they get their third star? sheridanhoops.com/2014/09/18/hol…

Eric Pincus

Updated trade exception info for @BBallInsiders Sacramento Kings after Rockets trade - team has 6 TPE !!! basketballinsiders.com/sacramento-kin…

Eric Pincus

My take on Kings/Rockets trade was on point - Gee for Thomas TPE, Hopson for Thornton TPE - new $5.8 mil TPE for Terry @BBallInsiders

Sam Amico

Alonzo Gee & Scotty Hopson entered offseason as Cavs. Have since become Hornets, Pelicans, Rockets & Kings, oh my. (Kings to waive both btw)

David Hardisty

The Rockets honored an agreement with Dwight Howard's agent in letting Chandler Parsons out of his contract. rockets.clutchfans.net/7680/rockets-h…

Chris Sheridan

UPDATE: Dwight Howard's brother, not the #Rockets center, was the driver in recent red-light violations. New details:sheridanhoops.com/2014/09/16/sh-…

Chris Sheridan

The Jet landing in Houston. But #Rockets have 16 guaranteed deals and have to trade. D-Mo or TJones seem likely sheridanhoops.com/2014/06/30/hou…

Chris Sheridan

Jason Terry is traded to the #Rockets, who are angling for a third star as early as #NBA trading deadline sheridanhoops.com/2014/09/18/hol…

Chris Sheridan

Now that the Jason Terry trade is official, here's the #Rockets plan, from @BenDuBose #NBA sheridanhoops.com/2014/09/18/hol…

Donatas Motiejunas most likely to leave Rockets sportando.com/en/usa/nba/135…

Infamous "Rockets Killer" Jason Terry on his plan to bring familiar energy to Rockets, leadership and role blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

Eric Pincus

Scotty Hopson - in his brief NBA career - has now gone from Cavs -> Hornets -> Pelicans -> Rockets -> Kings, likely to be waived

Dwain Price

The #Rockets acquired guard Jason Terry from the #Kings today. Terry helped the #Mavs win the 2011 NBA title.

Kurt Helin

It’s official: Kings trade Jason Terry to Rockets for Alonzo Gee, Scotty Hopson dlvr.it/6xGDxy

Eric Pincus

Once Rockets sign Papanikolaou/Garcia - and keep Beverley - 16 players locked in- 1 too many @BBallInsiders basketballinsiders.com/houston-rocket…

Eric Pincus

Jason Terry in, Gee/Hopson out @BBallInsiders Houston Rockets - also 2 new 2nd rounders basketballinsiders.com/houston-rocket…

Eric Pincus

Kings owe 2015 2nd rounder: 31-49 to Rockets, 50-55 to Heat, 56-60 to Celtics - likely to Houston @BBallInsiders basketballinsiders.com/sacramento-kin…

Eric Pincus

Minor update @BBallInsiders New York Knicks Team Salary - 2016 second-rounder now to Rockets, not Kings (Terry swap) basketballinsiders.com/new-york-knick…

Eric Pincus

Looks like Rockets acquire Terry via aggregation of Hopson/Gee (thus the wait) - no TPE's used or created on their side as far as I can see

Eric Pincus

I'll look the Kings side of Rockets trade - I'd suggest they use Thomas TPE (Gee) & Thornton TPE (Hopson) - adding $5.85 mil TPE (Terry)

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets complete deal for Jason Terry, two 2nd round picks. Will have 19 under contract after Papanikolaou signing. blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

Jonathan Feigen

Guessing Rockets working on getting Knicks' 2nd round pick for '17. Had NY pick last season (Nick Johnson); will have in 2015 and 2016, too.

Jason Jones

Rockets get Kings' 2015 2nd round pick if it falls between 31 and 49, and New York’s 2016 unprotected 2nd round pick in the trade.

Sean Cunningham

Meanwhile, the Jason Terry trade to Houston is now official. Terry, 2 future 2nds to Rockets for Alonzo Gee, Scott Hopson & trade expception

Sean Deveney

The @Houston Rockets announce they have acquired Jason Terry from the Kings for Alonzo Gee and Scotty Hopson ...

Eric Pincus

The Rockets have finally acquired Jason Terry for Alonzo Gee, Scotty Hopson - Houston also gets a couple of 2nd rounders

Jonathan Feigen

Terry might not be quite the "Rockets killer" of his reputation. Most numbers vs. Hou close to career averages, other than 47.4 % shooting.

Jonathan Feigen

As scheduled, Rockets announce acquisition of guard Jason Terry from Sacramento and two 2nd-round picks for Alonzo Gee and Scotty Hopson.

Emiliano Carchia

Jason Terry is officially a new member of the Rockets sportando.com/en/usa/nba/134… http://t.co/P0MXSHyBt9

Jason Terry

Thank you @Houston Rockets for making this a smooth transition. It's official the JET is on the runway #1stclass http://t.co/h5LiBLGI8E

Jenny Dial Creech

Rockets @Trevor Ariza prepared to take leadership role in second Houston stint houstonchronicle.com/sports/rockets…

Jonathan Feigen

Two weeks until 1st training camp practices, Rockets scheduled to complete deal for Jason Terry tmrw. Papanikolaou expected to sign this wk.

Adi Joseph

I was 7 when Garnett was drafted in 1995. I have NBA memories from earlier than that (Knicks-Rockets comes to mind), but not many.

Rockets players Trevor Ariza, Troy Daniels try their hands at being different type of 'pawn stars' blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

Eric Pincus

Celtics have largest roster - 20 players not including Evan Turner - Rockets at 20 once Kostas/Garcia ink up - Pacers 19 @BBallInsiders

Eric Pincus

I'd expect the Jason Terry (Kings) for Alonzo Gee/Scotty Hopson (Rockets) deal to happen in next 24 hours - don't believe Kings keep either

Jenny Dial Creech

Rockets GM @Daryl Morey making basketball/chess strategy comparisons to middle schoolers http://t.co/kyfnt5tFmU

Jenny Dial Creech

Rockets' @Trevor Ariza said he told his 6-year old son the options he had on where to play this year- his son's top choice was Houston.

Jenny Dial Creech

Rockets guard @Troy Daniels said the one thing he knows about chess is that 'the queen can go anywhere.' Yes, yes she can.

Chris Sheridan

The #Rockets had a couple of big whiffs this #NBA offseason. But the plan to add a 3rd star is still in place google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j…
