Why would Machado agree to that. He would be losing millions on the open market. He isn't going to pass up unrestricted free agency. Some team will pay the rental price...who knows maybe the Cardinals or Brewers instead....but he isn't going to sign and trade...no way no how.
You can't put West out there...they would just run his man at Harden and Paul and get switched off on them....look at Game 2...he got killed. He is a defensive liability. They needed Iggy a lot. His defense was missed. I'd rather go with young athletic guys....and then everyone needs to crash the boards. Poor poor shot selection last night. Forcing 3's with plenty of time left...didn't get Kevin the ball on the block. Looked like what got them in trouble against Cleveland a couple years ago. Houston is hungry...desperate...GS better bring more energy.
