What surprises will the new NBA season bring for the Houston Rockets?

The Houston Rockets are looking to turn it around in 2014-15. After a disappointing end to last year followed by an even more disappointing outlook for this year, the Rockets could surprise some people this season.

It's true—Houston's roster has downgraded quite a bit since Damian Lillard sent the team packing. Jeremy Lin and Omer Asik were traded away, and Chandler Parsons signed an unmatchable contract with the rival Dallas Mavericks in free agency.

But it's not all bad news for the Rockets.

General manager Daryl Morey pieced together an intriguing roster of young yet unproven talent. He also brought in veteran Trevor Ariza to take the place of Parsons in the starting lineup. With the duo of James Harden and Dwight Howard handling the reins, this squad still has plenty of upside for the upcoming season.

From young guns to seasoned vets, quite a few surprises are waiting for Rockets fans this year. Here are five predictions of surprises and breakout players for the Houston Rockets.
