But the Rockets are obviously not a suitable trading object. The Rockets themselves have locked up the team space because of Paul's max contract, and the Thunder will certainly not accept Paul's big contract, even if the team uses Paul and Harden. The player and the draft pick and the Thunder team reached a deal, the team will have three players with a max contract, the team is doomed to continue to strengthen, still have no strength to impact the championship, but will make the lineup adjustment space smaller, which is obviously It is not the situation that the Rockets are willing to see.
The joining of Wei Shao will completely destroy the rocket system
If you don't consider the salary problem, it is difficult to integrate with the Rockets simply from the personal play of Wei Shao. In addition to the Rockets establishing Harden as the core of the team, they firmly adhere to the "magic ball theory", the Rockets. In addition to the center "cake king" Capella, almost all players have a single-handed shooting ability, and Wei Shao as a backcourt player's three-point field goal percentage this season is only 29%, which is lower than the league average. He is not suitable for the Rockets' existing system.
Another reason why Wei Shao and Harden are difficult to coexist is that both of them are players who need a lot of ball power to play the offensive threat. In this season's regular season, Harden's turn share is as high as 40.5%. The league's first, and Wei Shao's round possession rate is 30.9%, ranking the league's ninth. The effect of their two players in a team is definitely 1+1 less than 2, so the Rockets will never try to get the power. less.
Therefore, from the perspective of the salary space of the team and the compatibility of the team and the players, the possibility of the Rockets and the Thunder team reaching a deal is extremely low. If there is a hint of hope, the Thunder will be willing to eat Paul for the remaining three years. Contract, otherwise the two teams have no possibility of reaching a deal!
