Default Just noticed that the Rockets get the #26 pick in the draft, ugh

I was thinking for some reason they were getting a low 20s pick. Anyway what player would be the best choice at 26?

Many.

I like Wilson Chandler, Jared Dudley, and Nick Young. Good possibility that Nick Young will be long gone, though. Javaris Crittendon might be a good pickup for us, though.

I think Crittenton will be gone by then as well. Gabe Pruitt could be a good pick, he could be a rotation player right away and a long term replacement for Alston. Almond is a safe bet to contribute right away, not much upside. A PF like Jason Smith or Glen Davis could be good, though either could be gone also

I don't think Jarvis will stay in the draft. If I was the Rockets, I'd trade the pick. It seems as if they're playing for the immediate future than later on. I don't think any of the guys around that area can immediately contribute.

Man, Rockets need a PF or a PG, I think they'd be wise to try to move up to try to get an impact player in the draft at one of those positions. Preferably point guard.

I don't think he's really a PG, but I wouldn't mind having him. Reminds me of Fisher a little bit. Maybe I'm just sipping the hometown Kool-aid, but I really like Morris Almond from Rice. I think he could be a pretty good scorer in the league.

And yeah, it's pretty depressing to find out we had the 5th best record in the league and lost in the 1st round. F'ing unbalanced conferences!

So do I and I'm not from Houston so don't worry about looking like a homer.

Now, we're going to have to find a new coach. I don't know how much that is going to affect the draft process.

Hey rockets fans, if your team was going after a proven veteran coach, which of these Ricks would you rather see;
Rick Carlisle, the JVG style slow-down coach who will keep up the game plan of playing slow to make the most out of Yao, and stressing D.
or
Rick Adleman, the man with the great half-court offense that could really emphasize Yao's passing and high post ability and open up the offense enough to let some role players develop a rhythm and contribute on that end

Well, I think he could net 20-22 ppg in his prime, probably above most people's expectations.

Adleman.

We need to emphasize offense for a change.
