Sorting out the Houston Rockets' rotation and playing style this season will be an ongoing task for Head Coach Kevin McHale, and not just because so many of his players are young and relatively unknown commodities.
He'll also have to determine how veterans like Kevin Martin fit in, assuming General Manager Daryl Morey doesn't first complete his complete his fire sale with another trade or two.
And, he'll be left to decide how versatile forwards like Royce White and Terrence Jones fit into the NBA, much less his roster.
The Rockets may not claim many wins this season, but that doesn't mean it's a lost cause. On the contrary, this may be one of the organization's most productive campaigns in recent memory. It just won't see the dividends from its investment right away.
Those will come along soon enough.
In the meantime, here's a look at what McHale should do with his starting lineup. That'll at least clear up his first order of business.
