5 Trades the Houston Rockets Should Already Be Thinking About

I hope the headline doesn't sound callous. What the Houston Rockets should be thinking about, they are thinking about: Sasha McHale's family. The whole team traveled to Minnesota in between back-to-back games to pay their respects to their coach's late daughter.

As thoughts eventually creep back to the game itself, the Rockets, always looking for a way to get better, find themselves a mere 7-8. Granted, the team has been in all their games except the post-funeral contest against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Staring at their lackluster results, though, the trigger-happy Rockets just might be motivated to make another trade.

On the next slide, I'll present the Rockets' current situation. I'll follow that with five trades. The first two swaps I've seen mentioned here and there, but I can't imagine them happening.

Any of the other three, though, just might propel the Rockets into the upper stratosphere of the playoff picture.

Stats are accurate as of 11/28/12.
