Depth is a good thing. But like all things, too much of it is bad for you. The Rockets have too much depth.
PG: Lowry/Brooks/Smith; Lowry and Brooks are both capable starting on a championship team and Ish would be a very good backup for any team in the league.
SG: Martin/Lee/Williams; Martin is one of the best scorers in the NBA. Lee started for Orlando during their championship runner-up year, and Terrence Williams is a lottery pick from two years ago.
SF: Battier/Budinger/Williams; Battier is one of the best defenders in basketball. Budinger is a excellent athlete and a solid shooter.
PF: Scola/Patterson/Hill; Luis Scola is one of the most underrated players in the NBA, averaging about 19-and-9. Patrick Patterson is a solid rookie out of Kentucky, and Jordan Hill is another solid lottery player.
C: Hayes/Miller/Hill; Hayes is one of the better post defenders in the league despite being undersized. Miller is a crafty veteran.
Most of these players would be getting big minutes somewhere else. And some of them aren't even getting minutes. The Rockets roster needs to be de-clogged.
