The Rockets are in mini-rebuild mode right now. They brought in some young talent and draft picks, but they still have a core of veterans that can keep them competitive.
In the most recent trades they made they brought in two draft picks, one for this year and one for 2013. So in total two picks for this year. Both will more than likely be teens, one in the lottery and one just out of it.
So positions to address in the draft this year for Houston? Small forward and center.
The starting small forward for Houston at the moment is Chase Budinger. While he's not an awful starter, you could certainly do better.
The starting center is 6'6" Chuck Hayes. One of the best post defenders in the league despite his size, but either way, he just isn't tall enough to prevent the layup drills team have against Houston every night.
So let's move on to 10 guys the Rockets should have their eyes on for the upcoming draft.
