If you were the Rockets GM, what changes would you make to this team? What trades would you try to work, what would you look for in the draft--how would you make this team better than it is?

Just thought it'd be a fun post to start the weekend. =)

Other topics might include: What decisions would you have made in the (recent) past, involving trades, draft days, etc.

Since no one else will start, I guess I will.

Order number one: Get a true point guard. Jason Terry, from ATL, wants to be traded. I'd give up Taylor for him. Or someone else... Bring Mobley in off the bench.

Order number two: Teach Yao to attack the basket. Draft/Trade for/Sign a good post player, to help him out there when he feels like being timid.

In the past: I would've tried to hold onto Cassell, seeing how he's turned out. He was a small, but important piece of our championship years, and he's turned into an enormously talented player. Ooo. Imagine a backcourt of Francis, Cassell, and Mobley. I would've taken Rashard Lewis in the draft. He would've been a great addition to this team. I'd support a trade for him. Or signing him in the offseason, whenever he hits free agency.

Jason Terry is anything but a true point guard. Like Francis, he is a SG in a PG body. But yea, the basics would include:

1. Getting a BIG true PG such as Eric Snow, who can defend the 2 on defense but allow Francis to play as a SG on offense. Make Mobley a 6th man, his impact would be best coming off the bench.
2. Yao = more aggressive
3. Francis... take some shooting lessons
4. Get a legitimate scorer... such as Mo Peterson (who is also a great defender)

That was last years problem, Mobley has been anything but a ball hog this year and is playing a great supporting role for this team.
