With the 14th pick, the Houston Rockets have a multitude of avenues the brass could pursue in the upcoming draft. While forward is not a spot of concern for the organization, as the roster already possesses numerous competent players at the specific positions, both guards and centers will be heavily scanned through by the Rockets to see if there is a player who is a perfect fit.

The following slides will examine players who look as if they may fit that very bill.

After a 1-7 slide late in the truncated season, the Rockets, who were once favorites to lock up the sixth-seed in the West, were officially knocked out of the playoff race. While major alterations are not a necessity, as the team almost captured their first playoff berth since the days of Tracy McGrady and Yao Ming, the organization needs to be searching for ways to improve their immediate and distant future outlooks.

With depth at nearly every position and a plethora of quality, young prospects, the Rockets are absolutely on a path back to playoff relevancy. However, the lack of a star player and low-post scoring threat has kept the franchise from establishing themselves as elite in the competitive Western Conference.    

So, what modifications should the Rockets' brass pursue? Well, this changing phase starts with their 14th pick in the upcoming draft.
