Houston Rockets make NBA Draft interesting at No. 3

Houston Rockets make NBA Draft interesting at No. 3

The Houston Rockets are excited after landing another top-three pick in the NBA draft following the results of Sunday’s drawing.

This is the fourth straight year the Rockets have held one of the top four picks in the draft, and now they have a lot to work on.

That being said, this year’s draft class is considered historically weak, but having the third overall pick is exciting for the franchise. Worst case scenario, they select a player with a lot of upside.

This player won’t have to play right away or take the franchise to the playoffs. The Rockets are already working with six young prospects from the last three drafts who all have their own potential.

Because of this, there is reason to believe the Rockets could end up trading the No. 3 overall pick. There could be a number of teams looking to trade up in the top three spots, and the Rockets should certainly accept any offers that come their way. There should be movement and Houston should be open for business.

Ultimately, the Rockets have another asset — and it’s cause for celebration. No matter what the pick becomes, whether it’s a trade piece or a player, the Rockets have something that will help their team far more than the No. 9 pick would have.
