    Chet.


    I think we need to get value for Wood to make sure we can secure Chet. Our window starts within 5 years.

    We’re going on a winning streak and getting neither.

    Silver already screwed us from the #1 pick last draft.
    It’s time he pays us back!
    Realistically though, he will hand it over to the Spurs and we will get the 5th pick.

    We have not even touched the surface of his potential, once he is near his prime, you can correctly assess.

    Yep, we need more high iq players instead of dumb ones. Defense wins championships period.

    Sure, but being 5th can be a huge difference in some drafts. Just reminding people the draft works differently. Before, we would have been practically guaranteed a top 3 pick with a great chance at getting #1...now it's not even that.

    Everyone talking about Chet or Bancero and we may not even be in the position to draft them.

    I prefer Jabari and Paolo to Chet at the moment. Would not be upset with Chet at all, though.

    This year im not gonna pretend I know what I am talking about because all these reports about rookies are lies. Only players in pro leagues are measurable like LaMelo, Tate, Alpi, Doncić etc. Based on all of the reports we were grabbing 6'6 Kobe type athlete and we got point-guarded sized shooting guard who can't finish play in traffic

    You're 100% right but I take solace in Sam's point because I think the draft will be five-deep for top talent, at least. Jaden Ivey appears to be in there and Jaden Hardy, Jalen Duren and Patrick Baldwin Jr. could push their way in there.

    I hate saying it because I want the Rockets players to develop, but I would like to see the worst record this year.

    I just want them to play the young guys and if they win, I'll be happy with it, if they lose, I'll understand too

    But yeah I want people to look past Chet or Banchero. There are other guys we should be looking at especially this early in the college/gleague season, Duran,Hardy, as you pointed out Smith, we need to look past Chet and Banchero

    Paolo and Jabari are the two targets I'd have if I were the Rockets. Chet is #3 for me.

    I’m on the Smith bandwagon myself but whomever @D-rock wants is good for me
