Morey has brought irreparable economic losses to the NBA. As the real behind-the-scenes boss of the Rockets, he is a bit helpless at the moment;
After being traded to the Grizzlies, he has not played a game this season, and he himself gave an ultimatum to the Grizzlies management; LeBron James said that he does not want to talk about any topic about the Lakers trade now, let’s take a look at it in detail
A tweet by Morey caused an uproar.
At that time, Rockets boss Fertitta said immediately after the incident: “Morey’s statement only represents him personally and has nothing to do with the Rockets.” At that time, some media and reporters had mentioned that the Rockets would fire Morey’s general manager.
However, this matter has risen to a higher level, and the league and local high-level officials have also expressed their support for Morey.
As the boss of the Rockets, Fertitta naturally cannot confront the league and the top management, so the dismissal of Morey will be nothing.
As the owner of the team and the business alliance, the income is of course the first priority. Due to Morey’s deadly behavior, their income has shrunk so much. If the boss is still optimistic about Morey, no one will believe it.
Coupled with the fact that Morey signed a maximum salary contract with Chris Paul last season and traded to Westbrook for a series of operations, it seems that it has not helped the team to succeed now.
Therefore, Morey is facing a huge crisis at the moment.
The Rockets boss, who was already dissatisfied with Morey, was unable to fire Morey under pressure at the time, but as time passed, the Rockets boss could use other reasons to deal with Morey.
Many league managements believe that at this moment, the Rockets boss asked Morey to ensure that the Rockets’ record cannot decline, and that they cannot continue to increase the team’s luxury tax.
In layman’s terms, the boss gave the employee ten yuan, but asked the employee to buy hundreds of dollars worth of goods, which is quite difficult to think about.
Therefore, the Rockets’ owner’s dissatisfaction with Morey is not only in the operation of the team, it is likely to be “settling accounts after the autumn”.
At that time, he had expected that by firing Morey, he would be able to avoid his own economic losses, but under pressure, he could not proceed in this way, and could only use another reason to “find fault”.
As long as Morey leaves the Rockets, I believe the Rockets’ status in the eyes of fans will gradually recover.
“Don’t be afraid of thieves stealing, but be afraid of thieves thinking about it.” This sentence is not rough.
Now Morey is under the magnifying glass of the Rockets boss, and a carelessness will become an excuse for dismissal.
Originally, the Rockets were very popular with Chinese fans because of Yao Ming and Tracy McGrady. This kind of “Rocket complex” has continued to the present, but their image has plummeted because of Morey’s deadly behavior.
The current Rockets boss has his eye on Morey. If Morey wants to stay in this position, he must operate perfectly.
“Trade me, or I don’t play.” This is the final result of Iguodala’s negotiations with the Grizzlies management.
Iguodala’s statement is a bit similar to the player’s “forced palace”. In short, “I will refuse to play if my requirements are not met.”
Of course, if the 36-year-old Iguodala can still force the palace management, it will make people feel a little funny.
Therefore, such a statement is not a coercion, but the result of negotiation between the two parties.
Iguodala’s deal was not so smooth, the Grizzlies traded this player from the Warriors.
It is similar to the situation where the Thunder got Chris Paul. They all hope to use Iguodala (Paul) to trade some players or draft picks, and then officially start rebuilding, but they don’t want to “smash” their hands.
Chris Paul continues to play games, and now the Thunder’s situation is still very good, Iguodala is another situation.
Iguodala has not officially put on the Grizzlies jersey so far this season, and the Grizzlies have not been able to find Iguodala’s next home for a long time.
Iguodala hopes to join a team that can compete for the championship, rather than go to a new underdog to help the team rebuild. He is 36 years old and he has not had a few years of career.
Get more achievements.
Although he has entered the end of his career, Iguodala’s game experience is what many teams need.
After all, he was the player who helped the youth warriors step by step to the top of the world, and he was the MVP of the finals of that team.
The Grizzlies have not bought out Iguodala for a long time, just hoping to trade Iguodala to get something of value, but now the two sides seem to have reached a deadlock.
Iguodala’s first wish is to join the two teams in Los Angeles, the Clippers and the Lakers.
The Clippers’ striker strength is already at the top level in the league. Leonard and Paul George have firmly occupied the core positions of the team. If Iguodala really goes to the Clippers, then his playing time will undoubtedly be even higher.
So what about Iguodala going to the Lakers?
It looks pretty good. The Lakers’ inside line is at the top of the league, but the outside line does not have the super dominance of the inside line. The outside line does lack strong defensive players.
From this point of view, Iguodala is more suitable for the Lakers.
Just in this way, who will the Lakers use to trade Iguodala?
If the Lakers use Kuzma, who has been involved in trade rumors this season, to trade, it seems a bit uneconomical, and the Lakers are not so stupid.
Moreover, last season the Lakers were turbulent because of the team’s trade.
Let there be differences between the top and bottom, and finally ruined the qualifications to enter the playoffs. If you are obsessed with trading this season
