The Houston Rockets are coming off a surprising 2023-24 campaign under first-year head coach Ime Udoka. They finished with a 41-41 record, winning just one game less than the previous two seasons combined.

Despite this, Houston jumped all the way up to No. 3 in the 2024 NBA Draft via the lottery. This has general manager Rafael Stone in a prime position to add more young infusion into the mix.

We’re also hearing that the Rockets are looking to move the third selection as part of a package for a proven All-Star caliber player. With the 2024 NBA Draft getting going later this month, let’s look at 5 ideal Rockets trade scenarios.
