    Surprised no one is talking draft with it coming up this week.....

    Two questions: Who should we take with our 2nd rd picks and should Morey trade them to move up to the first round???

    Trade Lou and 1 of our 2nds for Sacramento or Charlottes pick and draft Lauri Markkanen

    With our 2nd rounder, draft Dwayne Bacon because i like bacon and i think the superstars are made by their super star names and Bacon is a superstar name. Also he's from Florida and somethign about his face reminds me of Mad Max, so he's probably Vernon's illegitimate son and has clutch Rockets red flowing through his blood.

    hard to talk much about the draft when you don't have a 1st round draft pick; and likely won't.

    There are always some interesting players that end up developing from 2nd round picks. Personally I like some of the Eastern Europeans (e.g. Anzejs Pasecniks) and this kid from Australia (Jonah Bolden http://www.nbadraft.net/players/jonah-bolden ).

    If Denver scouts and wants a big from Europe...jump on that player immediately.

    Wouldn't mind a trade, since we already have a lot of young players and stashs. Zhou Qi will probably come over and take a roster spot. Don't think we can or should get into the 1st round, but maybe an early 2nd rounder will do it.

    Predictions:

    Trade Dekker for the 60th Pick.

    Package three 2nd round picks and move into the late 1st round.

    Draft a international prospect.

    CF hypes him up for 3-4 years,

    end result he never plays for the Rockets.

    Paging _holic

    But really I would like us to trade both 2nds and move into the early 2nd and draft either Jason Hart or Jonah bolden.

    If we end up with Jonah Bolden and Sterling Brown I'd be happy

    It also says he's considered very raw. It's been 14-15 years since we drafted him and he's still raw.

    Looking at the recent mocks. Looks like we could potentially get Bolden, the big guy from Latvia and pick up Sterling Brown(undrafted)

    I think that would be a big win for us....

    2nds don't effect the cap. It's 1st that have cap holds.

    2nd's can be signed after free agency.
