Well with the start of NFL pre season and the Dwight deal being done it seems as the Rockets are left with all these puzzle pieces and no one to put them together. As it stands today the Rockets roster has 21 players on it and the NBA will only allow 15 to make the season roster so what will the hometown team do? Some say Morey is still not done this off season and he is looking to land a Josh Smith or Danny Granger type player. We all know by now Kevin Martin and his expiring contract don’t want to be in Houston and that’s fine he is one of the 6 players we need to move. So what can the Rockets get for these other 5 mid to end of the bench type players? Picks? Package them for a better player? Release them into the "woods with the wolf" as D Mo would say?
Many of the talking heads in the national media will say the Rockets have been left for dead now that Dwight has been traded to the Lakers I think they are headed into a youth movement and have a 4-5 nice starting pieces. The draft was immediately called a failure for the Rockets because they did not move up and ended up making selections, but all three picks were standouts in the Vegas Summer League. D Mo was a 2nd round pick last year and is now ready to play in the NBA and he too has impressed in the Summer league, and then you have Chandler Parsons who was one of the better defenders on the team last year and now looks poised to be a better pro this season. Oh yea I almost forgot to mention we got this Lin guy from New York who is pretty good too. With this nucleus it seems like the future is bright for the Rockets and if Morey can pull off one more move for an established vet who can lead this team with Lin the Thunder.....I mean Rockets will be just fine.
