    I don’t know, but I hope some of those late first rounders we have unearth a few more KPJs

    He is Pistol Pete passing, but little to no defensive presence.

    With Wall, Porter, Eric Gordon and Augustin why the need for Giddey? I'm also expecting one of Cade Cunningham or Jalen Green which
    probably makes Augustin trade ready soon after.....Eric Gordon by trade deadline 2022.

    Wood came back March 17th, Wall has played in 6 games since then:
    Wall
    All 6 games: averaged 9.7 assists per game
    Break it down to last 4 games: averaged 11.0 assists per game.
    Break it down to last 2 games: averaged 13.5 assists per game.

    Not sure we need more facilitators, as compared to need for 3 & D wings or front line help

    The last thing u wanna do is draft for need. Prospects need to develop. You always draft for best player available

    Nah.
    Giddy at 18 is a very good prospect. Looks more and more likely that he won't be available late 1st round, could possibly be a late lotto or late teens pick.

    He is one of the top PG prospects in the draft. Stock is on the rise

    Do you seriously not get this? None of these people have anything to do with the next rockets team that will actually try to win. You don’t draft for fit nor do you give a **** about anyone on the current roster. **** people, this isn’t as complicated as y’all are making it. Best player available.

    I am hesitant to think someone can be a steal in the draft, when they don't even look impressive in a highlight video.

    He doesn't look quick enough to be more than a decent backup PG despite his court vision. I hope we can get a better late first rounder than him.

    That's the mistake the 76ers did. Took an estimated 7 years to get where they are now. Tilman can't and won't last that long.

    Embiid
    Ben Simmons
    Fultz
    Okafor
    Nerlens Noel
    Saric
    Rishaun Holmes
    Michael Carter-Williams

    A lot of duplication of the same, wasted too much time. You have to cultivate to trade for draft picks
    to cultivate again and then hope those newly drafted mature to be players in your rotation.


    Houston runs the risk of Tilman selling and Rockets being relocated out of state.

    Interested to see where experts place Tre Mann on draft boards. I don't think he'd make it through the lottery but he's someone to keep on eye on.

    Also what's Sharife Cooper's status? Has he declared? If we whiff on a top 4, I'd love to package our other picks to move up for him.

    Should be easy for the Rockets since they need everything.

    You have a better chance of winning the lottery without buying a ticket than the Rockets do of moving out of Houston.
