Default Re: Francis to Houston!!!

The Rox have a really good starting lineup, and well now should be able to score some points. But with the coaching change and the slow system that obviously helped their defense going with it, I wonder how good their D will be. I think it will be good, but not nearly as good as last year.

Great move for the Rox. I wish he'd have gone to the Heat. The West gets stronger and stronger, and the East weaker and weaker. Just isn't right

If these guys click, I dont see how any team can beat them, especially once they trade Alston for someone that can help up front.

CT: Ming/ Mutumbo/ Butler
PF: Scola/ Hayes
SF: Battier/ Wells/ Novak
SG: McGrady/ Head
PG: James/ Francis/ Brooks

and Alston (and Lucas III) for a kick arse forward/ center.

PJ Brown would be a great fit, Joe Smith would have been real nice too.

That really is an awesome lineup, especially considering they will probably find a decent PF without too much trouble.

One thing that stands out to me is that they have some pretty experienced guys as well, which will be very useful come playoffs.

Typing it up, I forgot they had Battier. Great guy that holds this team together.

Rockets are going to kick arse. They can throw so many different lineups out there. Sura's expirer along with Alston and a pick could nab them a very very good player.

I think we're fine at PF so long as we re-sign Chuck.

PF: Scola/Hayes/Landry/Novak

That'll work.

As far as I'm concerned, we could just give Rafer Alston away at this point. He isn't as bad as people make him out to be, but we have far better options now. He's useless to us now.

Unfortunately for them, experience doesn't matter much unless you learn from it. I think it's fairly safe to say T-Mac's experience isn't worth much.

Yeah we have some PFs but they undersized. Hayes 6-6, Laundry 6-7 and Scola 6-9. I think if we can get a center or PF that can rebound well and bang inside for Alston and Lucas we are set.

I think renouncing Chucky's rights and trying to get Udonis Haslem would be an even better move.

Just a suggestion though.

You just described Jackie Butler.

Jackie Butler is a Rocket.
