More thoughts about today’s trade

As I wrote about earlier today, Rafer is gone. But the thing I liked most about today’s trade are the players who were NOT traded.

Consistent with what I had hoped for a couple of days ago, the Rockets kept Artest, Landry, and Scola, assets that other teams probably wanted more than anything. Thanks Daryl Morey for not getting rid of these guys who play hard, are effective, and I think are the Rockets’ future (especially Landry and Scola).
