Ty Lawson and the Rockets' worst case scenario

In an attempt to temper some expectations, Colin shares an email from someone you will hopefully love to hate... I texted Ethan a couple days ago and asked him if there needed to be some presentation on the site of the possible worst-case scenario, post-Ty Lawson trade. He responded and said, "Our coverage hasn't exactly been measured." It hasn't, but neither has any of my excitement towards Ty Lawson. I could give you the same stats you've been reading all week, or I could link you to all the highlights that could get you even more excited, but I do think that it would valuable to measure...

Pat Beverley could benefit from rotation with Ty Lawson

While much will be said about what Ty Lawson brings, there is a good chance the addition could strengthen the Rockets at point guard even when Lawson does not play. Pat Beverley returns at the incumbent starter, but whether he cedes that role to Lawson or just large portions of his playing time, Beverley could […]

Nuggets GM Tim Connelly on trading Ty Lawson: "Tough day"

Trading a pivotal player is never an easy decision. And though troubled point guard Ty Lawson had his share of issues, Nuggets general manager Tim Connelly said it was difficult to move him.

Film Study: The complete Ty Lawson scouting report

The Houston Rockets traded for the secondary ball-handler and shot-creator they lacked on their roster. We go to the film and breakdown how Ty Lawson will fit with this Rockets team. Since free agency began on July 1, I have been pondering about specific moves or signings the Houston Rockets could make in an attempt to add the elusive secondary ball-handler they coveted. On July 19, the team made a low-risk high-reward move with the trade for former Denver Nuggets' point guard, Ty Lawson. The Nuggets shipped the talented Lawson along with an unprotected second round pick in 2017, and...

The Ty Lawson trade is better than you thought because Daryl Morey is a genius

The Rockets have allayed part of the off-court risk for their new contract. The Ty Lawson deal is now official, with the league office approving Houston shipping out Nick Johnson, Kostas Papanikolaou, Joey Dorsey, Pablo Prigioni and a lottery protected first-round pick for the point guard and an unprotected 2017 second-round pick. But, here's a fun new wrinkle: according to Zach Lowe, as part of the deal, Lawson has agreed to make the $13 million he's owed in 2016-2017 fully non-guaranteed. If he slips up this year, performs poorly or the Rockets decide to go in another direction, they...

Of Lawson, birthdays, and the wagging moral finger

As we pick apart the nuts and bolts of the Nuggets trade of Ty Lawson to the Houston Rockets ... the saga of Lawson's drinking and how our own mistakes can be made public. I'm sure at some point we have all been compromised and in a "celebratory" mood. Be it through drink or whatever other elements we have all experienced some sort of inebriation that makes our judgement seem skewed. The saga of Ty Lawson is one of mistakes from compromised judgment ability and the fallout from those (often poor) decisions. However ... it made me think about my own life, and the hypocrisy of knee jerk...

Ty Lawson trade reminds us who runs the Sacramento Kings

Ty Lawson was finally traded, but not to the Kings. Ty Lawson being traded to the Sacramento Kings seemed like an inevitability. When the Denver Nuggets drafted Emmanuel Mudiay, Ty himself infamously proclaimed "I'm going to Sacramento." The logic certainly made sense. Lawson has his best years under current Kings coach George Karl. The Kings were known to be looking to improve their strength at the guard position this offseason. Karl wanted Lawson. Everything seems to line up, and thus is became a natural conclusion both inside and outside of Sacramento that eventually the Kings would...

Lakers Attempted To Trade For Ty Lawson; Beat Out By Rockets' Offer

The Lakers attempted to pry guard Ty Lawson away from the Denver Nuggets but were beat out by the Houston Rockets. The Los Angeles Lakers were "determined bidders" for Nuggets' guard Ty Lawson, according to Marc Stein of ESPN. A report surfaced a few days ago that the Lakers were interested in dealing for the troubled point guard, which led to speculation that second overall pick D'Angelo Russell might spend his rookie season coming off the bench. It has been clear for some time that Denver would eventually move on from their talented point guard, whose trade value was down due to a...

Rockets land Ty Lawson in trade with Nuggets

The Rockets’ pursuit of a playmaker landed them one of the league’s best and a bargain price – but with one huge question mark attached. The Rockets reached agreement on a deal for Denver point guard Ty Lawson, acquiring the six-year veteran without giving up anyone from their playing rotation. But Lawson, 27, entered a […]

Kickin' it with Kiz: Ty Lawson's first priority is to get well

Worried. Like many others, I became angry with Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson. His lack of discipline and irresponsible behavior are inexcusable.
