The Rockets still have not used their exception(s), and they still need someone to log more minutes behind Yao than Dikembe can play regularly.
Checking free agents, there is not much there. Beggars can't be choosers and even CD is not dumb enough to start the season without someone else inside to take big minutes if/when Yao bumps his toe, again.
Who will it be? Toni Kukoc? Jake Voskuhl? Scot Pollard? Tony Battie?
If we had any trade bait, it might even be a restricted free agent like Drew Gooden.
Please don't tell me Cato may be back.
