Houston Rockets Roster 2021 Houston Rockets Roster

11-19, 5th in West Southwest

Houston had one of the major shakeups this offseason as they made a swap trade for John Wall and sent out Russell Westbrook. The James Harden rumors have been flying all season long as well. The Daryl Morey departure puts this team in new hands, and after competing for so many years, we are starting to see the Rockets slide back down. The roster still has some solid players, and they got a steal in Christian Wood, who will play center. However, PJ Tucker and Danuel House are not the most exciting wing players. As long as Harden is on the roster, the Rockets will be in the mix.
