Rockets and Bucks had discussed sign and trade involving Sessions but couldn't work out deal.
Papanikolaou said former Rockets Scola, Asik and believe it or not Vasillis Spanoulis among those that recommended he sign with Rockets.
Alonzo Gee & Scotty Hopson entered offseason as Cavs. Have since become Hornets, Pelicans, Rockets & Kings, oh my. (Kings to waive both btw)
Scotty Hopson - in his brief NBA career - has now gone from Cavs -> Hornets -> Pelicans -> Rockets -> Kings, likely to be waived
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
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)
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.
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.
Meanwhile, the Jason Terry trade to Houston is now official. Terry, 2 future 2nds to Rockets for Alonzo Gee, Scott Hopson & trade expception
The Rockets have finally acquired Jason Terry for Alonzo Gee, Scotty Hopson - Houston also gets a couple of 2nd rounders
Terry might not be quite the "Rockets killer" of his reputation. Most numbers vs. Hou close to career averages, other than 47.4 % shooting.
As scheduled, Rockets announce acquisition of guard Jason Terry from Sacramento and two 2nd-round picks for Alonzo Gee and Scotty Hopson.
Two weeks until 1st training camp practices, Rockets scheduled to complete deal for Jason Terry tmrw. Papanikolaou expected to sign this wk.
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.
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
