It was a swing and a miss.

Houston’s attempt at a revolutionary new style of play fell flat on its face after the Houston Rockets lost in 5 games to LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers.

Rafeal Stone, the Rockets GM, said in a press conference that they will not commit to small ball and will look to reclaim a big man after trading away Clint Capela.


Reportedly everyone except James Harden is a possible trade asset, yes, including Russell Westbrook.

Several Centers have been floated around in trade talks including Rudy Gobert and possibly Andre Drummond depending on whether or not he accepts his player option. Montrezl Harrell is also a solid option in free agency if they can find the money.

Expect a big change in Houston very soon as they look to match the rest of the league.
