Houston Rockets's off season plans?

The team will definitely look different come October. They gave away Lowry, Scola, Budinger, Dalembert, Dragic and more to come. Should and If they do get Howard or Bynum, then you probably have to add Kevin Martin and the rookies to be gone too. This team would probably look like this. Best case: C- Howard, D-Mo PF- Glen Davis, Patterson Sf- J-Rich or Turk, Parsons probably T. Jones Sg- Lee, ( Free agent) Pg- Lin, Brooks

the houston rockets is in the rebuilding stage after releasing so many players from the line-up last year who did not make it to the playoff. dragic was a revelation last year. i thought the rockets would keep him. but getting jeremy lin would be very wise move for the rockets. but they need to beef up the interior defense after releasing camby.

True, They are giving up on so much front court help. Letting go of Scola and the trades of Camby and Dalembert leaves the rookie D Mo and players like Patterson and Greg Smith left to man the front court. Too inexperience and if They do not get Howard then it would be their down fall. Teams with a strong front line will take advantage and pound the Rockets to the ground. By the way, Brooks sign with the Kings. So, the back up pg position is also a question mark.

It seems to me that your suggested lineup is of low probability. Yes, the Houston Rockets are in rebuilding mode and they have a lot of room for salary cap to get big time free agents. But I think they won't get Dwight Howard on this one. Also, Brooks is already out and I think Lee might move out. They got Lin from New York which is yet their most significant acquisition. I really don't know why they gave away the rugged Luis Scola. I think he is an exceptionally scrappy player. But oh well, they should be moving on by overhauling their roster already.

The off season is early and I still believe that They will add some more pieces to be competitive. By next week, They would acquire Asik of the Bulls and hopefully be part of a three way trade with the Magic and Lakers. If they can not get Howard then the at least try to get Bynum. Lee is still a 50/50 case. I think the Rockets are just waiting for a trade before offering Lee. I know they have his bird rights.

I am not hearing much talks about Dwight Howard, or Andrew Bynum for that matter, is going to the Houston Rockets. What I see from the reports is most likely to Lakers and Bynum to the Cavaliers. If they lose out getting a big man, I think they won't even make it to the playoffs with the left overs of the team that they have. Only Kevin Martin is a sure shot for them to score consistently.
