To give a little bit of information regarding the trade. The trade was reported by Fox 26 as agreed upon by Houston and Chicago 2 days ago. The trade is basically done. The trade is:

Houston:

Eric Piatkowski
Adrian Griffin
Mike Wilks

for

Chicago:

Dikembe Mutombo

I'll see if there is an official article out there about it and post it here.

I saw the notice on NBA TV. Hopefully, Deke has some gas left in the OLD tank, so that he can help Yao & TMac.

What? This is in no way a rip off for the Rockets.:no: Piatkowski and Griffin weren't going to play and they weren't going to re-sign Mike Wilkes. They desperately needed a backup C and Mutombo can give them a good 10-15mpg.

Agreed, I don't think anyone gets ripped off, it should help both teams. Mutombo didn't want to be in Chicago, and those guys weren't going to play in Houston, so it works out nice. And its not like its this monster trade, I think its a good trade for both teams.

Imagine if Yao and Mutumbo were both in at the same time:eek:
Yao and Cato were far more dangerous defensively.

Hasn't Mutombo been threatening retirement because he's tired of being traded?
He wanted to go to a contender... and that is what he expects Houston to be with McGrady, Yao and company.

Is is true that he will give us some extra money next year when he retires. Not entirely sure how much though but about 9 mil I would guess. And guess where that money is going.......resigning Yao prolly.;)
