    After looking at several mock drafts these are some of the players the Rockets should have a reasonable chance at getting. What are y'alls thoughts on these guys? Who do y'all think we could reasonably get to help our team immediately?

    Adreian Payne, PF Michigan State

    Cleanthony Early, PF Wichita State

    Nik Stauskas, SG Michigan

    P.J. Hairston, SG Texas Legends (formerly UNC)

    I like Payne's NBA future, but he's not a clear upgrade over T-Jones or D-Mo.

    Cleanthony Early resprents a versatile swing guy that would fit right in and have good, long-term upside for the Rockets.

    Nik Stauskas is a great shooter who should easily transition to the NBA. Rockets needs better 3-point shooters.

    For the Rockets range, I kind of like Adriane Payne, CJ Fair, or Deandre Daniels.

    Sam Dekker is someone who was rated high last season but didnt make the jump people expected this year. I still think he has pretty good pro potential though. Jordan Adams, LaQuinton Ross and GR3 are some other wing guys that could help us out.

    The guy I'm hoping falls to us is Jerami Grant.

    I think we might see Cauley-Stein slip...maybe not far enough but he would be a great backup for Dwight if we can move Asik this summer.

    I will go with Payne among the four listed. I haven't seen Early. Payne has potential defensively and has an improving shot.

    I hopeful James Young would slide to the Rockets. Can be the wing off the bench they desperately need to give Harden and Parsons a breather.
