Houston adds a defensive sf to finish out season at a years reduction of salary of=ver the very seldom used Twill. Also adds another young wing prospect who at times can be a solid player just needs to be away from the Raps and be surrounded by pros like Battier and Scola. Adds a couple of picks, one latge first and one early second. Houoston upgrades their talent level overall(even though marginally) but it costs them by dropping them in a weak draft.

toronto adds a sf who can do a bit of everything and just needs to be given a bit of time to play through some mistakes and allowed to grow with a young rebuilding team. Fills a large hole on the raps at the sf spot and can take pressure off the pgs. raps also move the miami pick up to the middle of the first round.
Houston's looking for a stud, and this trade gives far too much value for Weems and Wright, even if it does cost them less. If anything, we'd be the team getting the late first and second rounder while giving up a lottery pick.... not that we would do that. Weems and Wright just aren't any good, expecially for a team that has too much middle of the road depth.
