The Houston Rockets once again find themselves in a predicament determining whether to rebuild or retain their core group of players. Barely missing the playoffs last season, mostly due to a 1-7 stretch at the end of the truncated schedule, just adds fuel to the burning dilemma. However in both solutions, the organization needs to pursue new players in either an attempt to rebuild or acquire a playoff berth. 

An appropriate question that must be asked, though, is who should this team try to obtain via trade, free agency or draft.

While the Rockets don't possess a plethora of cap space, as they are financially committed to the cumbersome contracts of Luis Scola, Kevin Martin and Kyle Lowry, the team does have enough money to land a star. But, Houston's attempts of landing a star have often fell flat. Last season, the Rockets failed to add Pau Gasol of the Los Angeles Lakers

Players who are either a serviceable center or provide point guard depth will most likely be on Houston's radar.

The subsequent slides will list and examine Houston's five best options regarding players who would be able to elevate the team's level of  competitiveness in the playoff hunt.
