    At this point, I think they keep Gordon for now. As such, I think the depth chart will look something like...

    KPJ / TyTy / Nix

    Green / Christopher / Nix

    Gordon / Tate / Mathews

    Smith / Eason / Mathews / Garuba

    Sengun / Garuba / Boban

    Sengun/Mitchell Robinson/Boban
    Jabari/Garuba
    Eason/Tate
    Green/JC/Mathews
    Porter/TyTy/Nix

    If you drink the "NIX IS LIKE A LOTTERY PICK" kool-aid then he'd have to be the backup PG right? But I don't drink that sugary **** that puts you in the grave early.

    KPJ / TyTy
    Green / Christopher
    Tate / EGo
    Smith / Eason
    Sengun / Garuba*

    *I hope!!! Garuba looked so bad last year and I was so hyped for him... I hope he gets it together.

    I think that having a sharpshooting PF enables us to play Tate at SF.

    Gordon's got to come off the bench. He can't be your starting SF. If Eason isn't ready for one of the starting forward spots yet, it's got to be Tate or Martin at the 3, IMO. Personally, I'd like to see them move Tate and Gordon soon to make room for these young guys.

    See, I disagree. I think Gordon would have been an awkward fit with Banchero and Sengun, but with Smith and Sengun? I think he absolutely could start.

    I love Gordon, and he's more than proven his worth in his time in Houston. He'll go down as one of my favorites of the Harden era. But the man is not a starting SF. He'd be the shortest SF in the league by a pretty wide margin. He's at his best as a 6th man and has been for years, and ultimately it's time for the young guys to shine. He can still get his 25 minutes, but let it be off the bench. Or better yet, now's the perfect time to move him for future draft capital.

    Gordon and Tate are literally the same height.

    I, personally, am much higher on TyTy than Nix. I don't necessarily buy that TyTy will take over for KPJ, but I think he'll lockdown the backup spot.

    It's crazy to think the Rockets can roll out the following lineup and it's not even a wish, $hit can happen for real !!

    P.G. - TyTy Washington
    S.G. - Jalen Green
    S.F. - Tari Eason
    P.F. - Jabari Smith Jr.
    ..C. - Alperen Sengun

    How the **** did the Rockets get this lucky????

    Assuming no trades

    Kpj/Tyty/Nix
    Green/Jgup/Mathews
    Eason/Gordon/Tate
    Smith/Garuba
    Sengun/Claxton/Boban

    I'd like to consolidate some of these guys. Queen is a nice prospect as well.

    Y’all just wanna hand the 29th pick the starting job before he steps foot on the floor. Hilarious!! TyTy will unseat Nix and that’s it.

    It's more that he was a guy people thought it would be nice to have but now he's a Rocket.

    Or maybe Porter isn't a good fit next to Green. He chucks and isn't a good playmaker.

    I'm curious. You really think our 29th draft pick rookie is going to start over Porter?

    Oh that’s right, nobody else is allowed to shoot other than Green.

    Once Wood sat towards the end of last season, Porter and Green looked incredible together.

    I'm not super high on KPJ but adding Tari and Smith really helps guys like KPJ be themselves
