    Another solid night for Shawn in last night's Sixers game against Toronto. Although Philly lost by eight, Shawn had 9 points on three for five shooting in 18 minutes of action. He was 2 for 3 from beyond the three point line and added five rebounds. Those stats along with one assist, one steal and two blocks allowed him to register a plus two in the plus/minus category. I never thought he would do this well in the NBA, one of the toughest athletic fraternities in the world to break into.

    He is surprisingly surprising many, if not most.

    Great to see.

    Giving up a 2nd rounder in the NBA doesn't show that at all. Second round picks rarely even make NBA rosters.

    Well Shawn was clearly targeted by the rockets. This isn't just a player dump.

    It's going to be hard rooting for the rockets though. I can't stand "clutch city"

    Philly has a lot of draft capital invested in young bigs. I'm sure they were glad to find a deal that gave them something in return.

    In that same regard, this is good for Shawn as he now wont be blocked by the bonus babies in front of him, some who are deserving and some who may be there simply because of the investment the team made in them.

    Win-win

    Actually did some more digging. Houston has traded for five other players like Shawn today. He may actually be included in the clippers trade

    Yeah, NBA trade requirements are insane. Many times, three teams (or more) are involved. Either way, getting out of Philly may be a blessing for Shawn.

    I get it but I'm still impressed that Shawn got that type of attention. To me it says he has staying power.

    Yep, and his numbers back up your statement as well.

    He will still have to battle just like he would have in Philly. He's not on a guaranteed contract and costs very little to waive. A trade like this may have just been to get the numbers to work, but we'll see. I'm not a CBA expert


  16. UL Basketball Rockets trade for Shawn Long, Paul

    Chris Paul returns to the Pelicans' division with the Houston Rockets.

    Smart move by Houston. Shawn will back up Ryan Anderson. They're playing Styles mirror each other. Shawn can stretch the floor just like Anderson. Houston is preparing for a deep run in the playoffs against a team like Golden State. Guys like Sean are big guys who can shoot and match up with the, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and Dirk Nowtiziki of the basketball word.

    Good job Houston

    If it doesn't, maybe Orlando?
