Podcast: August 2022 Rockets financial update with David Weiner

David Weiner, NBA salary cap guru for ClutchFans, joins Friday’s episode of “The Lager Line” podcast with a Houston Rockets financial update covering the remainder of the 2022 offseason and 2023 free agency.

Topics discussed between Weiner and our Ben DuBose include trade aggregation options in late August involving players acquired from Dallas for Christian Wood; what Houston’s 2023 salary flexibility could bring; rotation battles to watch at 2022-23 training camp; and much more.

The podcast also dives into the stalled NBA trade market based on uncertainty involving Kevin Durant in Brooklyn and Donovan Mitchell in Utah. Once those situations are resolved, it’s possible more deals could open up around the league for teams like the Rockets.

Friday’s full episode can be listened to below. Each episode of the show is also made available via flagship radio station SportsTalk 790 in Houston, as well as to all major podcast distributors under “The Lager Line.”
