Here is a look at the current Rockets roster after the HOU/NYK sign and trade:


C Josh Harrelson
C Jerome Jordan
C Greg Smith
PF Luis Scola
PF Patrick Patterson
PF Jon Leuer
PF Terrence Jones
PF Royce White
PF Jon Brockman
PF: Marcus Morris
PF/C Donatas Motiejunas
PG: Toney Douglas
SG: Jeremy Lamb
SG: Kevin Martin
SF: Chandler Parsons


Now I'm a Suns fans who has had to deal with a HORRIBLE GM in Steve Kerr when he was in Phoenix, but damn even he is WAAAAYYY better than Daryl Morey. :p

How the hell has he not been fired yet?! :confused:

He's gaining assets and future picks for something big Ex Dwight Howard.

dont matter. That team has a chance to get a number 1 pick. Nerlens Noel, that guy is going to be huge at kentucky. people wouldn't even notice anthony davis is missing.

"Power forwards" do have the coolest position name. Better than "shooting guard", "center", "small forward" (weak), and "point guard".

I like Morey's line of thinking. More "power forwards"= win.

they were medicore. they have like 4 young guys with potential. will have potentially a top 5 next year and after that. Then they have around 6 young guys some already developed, they can be a force in like 3-4 years and be good for a long time.

I think there is a thread out there about the biggest losers this offseason. Right now it's the Rockets by a MILE! I have no clue what the hell they are doing. If someone could enlighten me I would be grateful. Seriously they had a good team and they just tore it apart and I am not sure for what? Howard failed? but they continued even after the Howard fail...so I am confused

Yea given that the season starts tomorrow, this roster just won't cut it...he definitely must be fired! Fail. How about you reserve judgment till the tipoff of the upcoming season. There's a reason he's a GM and you're not.

This is way worse though. They lost two very good point guards and replaced them with... power forwards.

I'm telling you, Morey's onto something here. With a starting 5 of power forwards this team will lead the league in rebounding. They won't be good, but what the hell?

As good as both of those guys were, they weren't leading them anywhere, especially when they were the best players on the team. The rockets finally realized that those guys were Only pieces to a puzzle for a team ready to contend, which neither Toronto or Phoenix will be doing. Rockets are overhauling...and it's about time they finally did. People see it as them having one of the worst offseasons, but those people aren't thinking outside the box or looking at the big picture.

as a rockets fan, this is a very skewed post right now.

the offseason is far, FAR, from done, but this will not be their roster on opening night. im not saying they get dwight. im not saying they get josh smith. but mchale even acknowledged that, in his last interview, this roster is far from finished.

yes, they have a lot of pieces right now, many of the players will be moved, cut, and traded.

this is NOT the final roster, so i wouldnt judge morey until its done. this article is kind of premature, thats all im saying.

Whoever said they are still the Rockets is insane. Kevin Martin is the type of player who needs the ball spoon fed to him who is going to do that. they should have trade either Lowry or Dragic during the season for value! But no

No I don't think so. Our current FO is with the same owner yet they have been doing a pretty good job so far.

And by "go big or blow it up", did you mean "big" literally or figuratively? ;)

Nah, Sarver was the reason the team fell apart, he sold draft picks like Deng and Rondo IIRC.

And I dont see what makes you think they have been doing a good job.

Isn't Asik still unmatched? Douglas was a great addition, Lamb was a great pick at their spot and White/Jones can play 3 with no problems. The top 3 PF listed all have trade value.

The draft picks are each versatile so they can get minutes all over the court. It's a nice young team if you know what you're looking at and you aren't infatuated or obsessed with big names.

Its easy to look at height, weight and positions when judging them, but try doing it with some info about the players.

Morris was being converted from a 4 to a 3 as soon as he was drafted practically. You also forget Livingston and what people don't realize is that several of those guys have unguaranteed contracts that add up to 7 mil. That means we could potentially give a team 10+ million in instant cap relief in any trade

as a knicks fan i have all the info i need on douglas,harrellson and j.jordan. toney is not a PG and never will be, starting him at point is a disaster, we tried it in NY for a short period of time, by the end of the year he couldnt even beat out mike bibby for minutes. Harrellson is a nice role player but starting him at C would not be a smart choice, his skills are very limited. Jerome Jordan is a big body and has no idea how to use it, he also has very limited skills but he could develop.

Awful roster, just awful. No anchor at centre and no PG worth playing. If they lose Scola to injury, they are screwed.

Long term is probably brighter than it was before though as they were going nowhere

Toney Douglas is by far the worst. This season he was negative in Win Shares, ****ing negative. TS% .393, eFG% .371, ORrg 82. The number don't really do his complete ineptitude at everything justice. He is an offensive cancer who can barely manage a pass to the person right next to him. His handles are awful. He tries on defense, but he's an idiot so he guards everyone super close including guys that can't shoot like Rondo. Every time Douglas enters the game you can expect a run by the other team.

They still have tons of assets and movable pieces. I say they are a top 5 lottery team next season, and then back in the playoffs the following year.

ShockerArt
07-10-2012, 10:35 AM
They are just collecting assets and trying to position themselves to acquire a star player. Morey's goal is to turn the Rockets into a contender, and in the NBA you need elite players to do that. He doesn't want Houston to get stuck in the rut of just-above-.500 / perennial 1st round exit. In the NBA you want to be an elite team or a contender for the #1 pick.

torocan

WhiteSoxGod

It's hilarious to see short-sided people disrespect such a good GM. Most of those players are on non-guaranteed contracts.

Not only can the Rockets facilitate ANY trade they are in a position to sign 2 MAX deals next year. Not only that they could potentially have 4 1st rd picks next year (1 of which could be a top 5 pick from Toronto) and 3 1st rd picks the following year.

Morey has set the Rockets up to rebuild, they have 7 1st rd pick players from the past 3 years on their roster. The Rockets have a ton of potential moving forward.

GMEN4EVER
07-10-2012, 10:54 AM
I think it's pretty clear the Rockets have realized they aren't drawing super stars via free agency. So they are going to have to tank in order to acquire a couple young studs and hope they draft well and develop those players properly.

Seems like they're just going to have a swath of young talent to work with, get their heads bashed in for 2 years, grab a pair of top 5 picks to put on the court with whatever young guys show they're worth keeping around long term. And THEN go after a marquee free agent to fill in an area of need. It's not a bad approach really. Problem is most fans don't want to see their team do that. It's a 2-3 year complete rebuild. They don't want to be the Hawks, good enough to make the playoffs, no shot of ever winning.

The funny thing is that you can make any pg efficient given the right system. When Aaron Brooks was here last time he looked like a stud. Why you ask? It's because the system set around him. If we bring over Sergio Llull from Europe he would be great. There are still several PGs on the free agent market and the Rockets have a TON of cap space ability.

Here is a look at the current Rockets roster after the HOU/NYK sign and trade:



Now I'm a Suns fans who has had to deal with a HORRIBLE GM in Steve Kerr when he was in Phoenix, but damn even he is WAAAAYYY better than Daryl Morey. :p

How the hell has he not been fired yet?! :confused:


People like you are Baffling. He's not done making moves obviously. Do you strongly believe that the roster you posted is going to be the same roster when they start the season? It probably won't even be close.

Morey accumulated tons of draft picks, as well as made more than enough cap space to have more than enough options to get better. The Rockets have never been in this position before where they had this much wiggle room. Even if they sign Howard and still get rid of him next year, the Rockets will have plenty of money to spend on other big name free agents. As someone else stated in this thread, It's called Assets!!! Morey may not have a plan, but why don't we wait until the season begins before we start judging people? If the Rockets haven't made any progress by the time the season starts, then I agree he should be fired. There is still a lot of time left for things to happen though.

If the Rockets haven't made any progress by the time the season starts, then I agree he should be fired. There is still a lot of time left for things to happen though.

They got perhaps a mid first rounder in next years draft.. Two Knicks 2nd Rounders which will be in the 50's, A Toronto Raptors protected pick right?

If they did trade for Howard and he chose to walk during Free Agency next year... What big name will they get? They fail on Eric Gordon & Deron Williams

I still think the Rockets can lure in Free Agents, they are still a big market and lots of players love living there, this just hasnt been their time.

They have 3 SF's... Royce White & Terrence Jones are SF's but still they have 6 PF's lol

I remember back when they had Yao, T-Mac, Artest, Battier, Barry, Scola, Landry, Brooks, Alston, Mutombo, Hayes, Head, Francis, & Dorsey

Nice to see what he has turned that into.. He should be FIRED

it seems like you watch a lot of basketball :facepalm:

I really woulnd't judge now because in the end, the rockets are set for a bright future, is just a matter of time. Either Morey is set for a trade or he is set for rebuilding. Also by next offseason, the rockets will have plenty of money to spend & plenty of 1st round picks, which sounds attractive for a trade. Let's just wait and see

Roster doesn't look good at all but I hope Morey isn't done yet. They've got to do something with Martin and Scola? I'm not sure those 2 can carry the team to a decent playoff spot next year.

Wait, do they only have one point guard?

Some of you don't know what the hell you are talking about. Over the next few years they are gonna have a ton of cap space and draft picks. Thats how you build a chamipionship team...You either do it through cap space (i.e. the Heat two years ago) or you do it through the draft (i.e. OKC the past five years). He obviously has a plan to rebuild through the draft and solid free agent signings, which under the nex CBA is very, very smart.

hasn't been their time? they had two quality point guards and three first round picks. or was it four? all mid-rounders, and no one anybody was makin' a move for.

now they have no point guards and an entire roster of no-names. but good luck anyway
