Well, at least some good will come of this... we'll to see how good Pau really is now.
Patterson more or less = Scola anyway. You won't run plays for him yet -- but he's on a different level defensively, he fits with pretty much any center unlike Scola, and he's only a sophomore.
And they have a ton of youngsters coming in. Motiejunas looks especially impressive atm. He just broke the Euroleague rebounding record some days ago, and remember, this is the guy who was top 3 on everyone's draft boards early last year, and dropped to 20 because of bad rebounding.
Still, I'd imagine other deals are following. Rockets have a ton of assets. Either they turn around and trade Pau to a contender at some point. Or they turn all the assets into Andre Iguodala or Danny Granger or something.
