Lol.My concern would be that we get rid of too many players, draft more rookies and let them ride the pine again. It would be great to grab a bunch of draft talent, but with the way the Rockets use their Rookies, I would first, hate to be a rookies drafted by them and second, know that the Rockets would only send their rookie picks put on the D League squad to play other washed up scrubs and not given the chance to get better, improve and show potential against the games elite in the NBA. What Parsons did was rare and I can't see that happening again. We need to take chances with playing rookies in the NBA like other NBA teams or stay mediocre forever and continue to piss off players who could have been great, but never get a chance in the pros. Just look how Hill responded when given the chance in LA! He showed more potential in those few games than years in Houston because LA empowers players to excel while the Rockets seem to want to limit and hide players talent. Basketball isn't like Baseball, therefore we should quit shipping our players off to the "Minor Leagues" and start giving them a chance. The air surrounding the Rockets is beginning to stink as there is something wrong with management, coaching or players who perform poorly only to be traded away from Houston and shine when given the opportunity to play at the NBA level.
So, are you concerned with winning or losing too many players? I honestly don't care if we have anybody return from last year if it meant we made a deep run in the playoffs. Certainly this wont happen, but why do you care if we lose "too many players" if it gives us the result we all want- Im not saying Howard alone could do this, but regardless of the players we give up he would improve our team. A big reason why our rookies often hit the D-League prior to coming to the Rockets and getting PT is because we consistently draft in the middle where we get skilled players that need polishing, which is what the D-League is perfect for. Morris definitely deserved more PT this year, but this year was special with no true offseason and a new coach installed. About the Jordan Hill comment, he was given an opporunitity STARTING with the Rockets, and did NOTHING special(nor did he do anything great as a reserve), he was a product of the system in LA. The D-League is a great institution considering the one and done bs from college where players are often not ready for the NBA.
