The Houston Rockets finished the year with the worst record in the NBA. This is no surprise given the fact that they traded both James Harden and Russell Westbrook in order to rebuild the organization. Moving forward, Houston has plenty of more work to do and the front office has shown that they are not afraid to be aggressive.
Despite finishing with the worst record in the NBA, the Rockets did not land the first-overall pick in the draft and will likely miss out on the chance to add Cade Cunningham.
Houston was given the second pick on draft lottery night and they will have their choice of any of the other top prospects. Evan Mobley and Jalen Green are two in particular that the Rockets have been linked too.
If Houston wants to continue to make big trades, the Sacramento Kings could be interested as a trade partner. It was another long year in Sacramento. They are postseason drought grew to 15 years and it is not looking like it is going to end anytime soon.
The Kings have had many names featured in NBA trade rumors, such as Buddy Hield and Marvin Bagley III, but nothing has been done just yet. That could change once the offseason rolls around.
This is a trade that would feature two rebuilding teams and hopefully move them in the right direction soon enough. Let’s take a look at what a potential deal between the Rockets and Kings could look like once the postseason is complete.
