    Based upon the way Rudy and CD were talking him up this summer, I think Langhi might see a significant increase in playing time. Possibly enough to warrant moving him ahead of Walt. I suppose it really depends on how well The Wizard is playing.

    Now that Mo is down for the year, Rudy and CD will probably be trying even harder to move Walt to a team desperate for cap room next summer in exchange for a big man. Jahidi White remains at least a possibility. My guess is that the Rockets are doing everything they can right now to get another big guy. They shouldn't hold their breath for the NBA to grant them the medical exception--that is rarely granted. Walt's expiring contract is the only tradeable commodity that the Rockets would be willing to part with. Dan Langhi should see some minutes this year, and don't assume that Walt will be on the team for much longer.
