The Rockets were another team that needed a complete overhaul after the James Harden debacle. The new generation of players are in for Houston and the future looks bright. The Rockets had the second overall pick in this year’s draft and used it to select Jalen Green. Green did not go to college and instead chose to play for Team Ignite in the G League. That might have been the right decision as Green played against grown men and stood out as a special player even there with his patented step-back jumper. The Rockets picked Josh Christopher and Alperen Şengün who should both pair nicely with established NBA players like John Wall, Christian Wood, Avery Bradley, Kevin Porter Jr., Eric Gordon, and D.J. Augustin. Last year, the Rockets were laughably bad and looked disinterested in the sport of basketball. But this year could be different as they have a lot of good pieces inside that organization.
