Earlier on Thursday, a person with the Twitter handle @Nicholas_Spain sent out a tweet saying the Cleveland Browns have offered the Texans two first round picks for Andre Johnson. After Miles Austin became a Brown, Spain said the offer has been changed to just a first and a third. Many Texans fans laughed at the report saying the Browns would be absurd to make the offer. Spain claims to be an “Browns Insider – CBS Rotoworld, ESPN Insider” though his twitter work doesn’t make him seem like a professional.
The report seems to be fake, though Spain is still standing by his word. It’s a lose-lose for Spain though as a huge Browns fan. If he’s right, the Browns sending a first rounder plus another early pick is an absurd price to send Houston’s way. If he’s wrong, well….he’s wrong.

As expected, Isaiah Canaan spent most of his inaugural NBA season riding the roller roaster back and forth between Houston and the Rockets’ D-League affiliate in Rio Grande Valley. While with the Vipers, the rookie point guard did pretty much everything asked of him, averaging nearly 22 points and more than eight assists per game while bulling his way to the free throw line approximately six times per contest as well. An injury to Patrick Beverley in late March then opened up an opportunity for Canaan to see time as Houston’s primary backup at the point guard position. During that seven-game stretch, he averaged 9.3 points and two assists in more than 21 minutes of action per game while shooting 40 percent from beyond the arc.
