The Houston Rockets were able to do the unthinkable by finding a taker of Ryan Anderson’s contract. Details? Here’s an honest breakdown in three tenets.

The Houston Rockets are never done with their off season with the likes of Daryl Morey at the helm of the general manager position.  We always wonder as onlookers if the team has a couple of more moves left in them before the start of training camp and that usually has been in the case during this era of transcendence for the organization.

But despite as talented as Morey is, I didn’t think he could pull off the unthinkable of trading Ryan Anderson‘s contract off the Houston Rockets‘ books.  But when one starts to doubt him, that’s when this man shines at his best.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, as expected, had the first word of the Houston Rockets pact with the Phoenix Suns.  The team was able to masterfully trade Anderson along with De’Anthony Melton in exchange for Brandon Knight and Marquese Chriss.

So enough of the flattery of the Houston Rockets‘ architect, let’s have a discussion of the deal that has just been presented in front of us.

Let’s take a dive and find out what makes it tick.
