Re: 2013 NBA Offseason News
The Rockets withdrew their qualifying offer to swingman Courtney Lee, making him an unrestricted free agent.
The Rockets withdrew their offer because had he accepted, because according to beat writer Jonathan Feigen it would have taken them out of the running for Jeremy Lin, Omer Asik, and long-shot Eric Gordon. Goran Dragic isn't getting any cheaper, either. Yahoo! Sports' Marc Spears reports that Lee is getting interest from the Clippers, Pacers, Bulls, Mavs and Wizards, as he has become a hot name in a short amount of time -- the antithesis to inefficient, one-dimensional free agents like Jamal Crawford and Nick Young.

Granted, Morey appears to have a clue, but I really question this.
"I have just been more than a little suspect of all the trades since the Willy (Scott Williamson) cash grab. That one left such a bad taste in my mouth that even a 1985 Dom Pérignon couldn't cleanse it." -- Creek14
