Is Eric Gordon on his way out of Houston?

Photo by Noah Graham/NBAE via The longest-tenured Rocket may be a Rocket no more. When James Harden was traded by the Houston Rockets this past January, Eric Gordon became the longest-tenured Rocket on the roster. EG has been through all of the highs with the Rockets, and he’s won five playoff series with the team over the course of his five years with the team. Those five years include this past season when the Rockets plummeted into the doldrums of the league and a 17-win campaign. Gordon was not a primary factor as to why the Rockets lost so much considering he...

Youth movement or still having James Harden: Which Rockets' plan would have worked best?

A Rockets' roster of James Harden, Russell Westbrook and Christian Wood could be contenders, but this youth movement lends hope for the future.

Could Rockets and 76ers talk a John Wall-Ben Simmons trade?

Could Rockets and 76ers talk a John Wall-Ben Simmons trade?

Photo by David Dow/NBAE via The Rockets and John Wall have agreed mutually on parting ways. Would the 76ers be a good trade partner? As of today, Shams Charania of the Athletic reported that John Wall and the Houston Rockets are working out a better situation for him. Sources say he will be present for training camp and games but will not participate in those events. The Rockets are giving up the keys to the kingdom for a Kevin Porter Jr. and Jalen Green backcourt, which makes sense. There was no fit for Wall in the Rockets’ rebuild. Honestly, Wall’s purpose is...

Sources: Dante Exum to sign with Rockets

Photo by Tim Warner/ The Australian is heading back to Houston. The Houston Rockets finalized their training camp roster Tuesday night by signing veteran Dante Exum. Exum becomes the 21st player to join the roster for training camp, which begins later this month. This means the Rockets will have to part ways with one player before training camp begins. Exum was acquired by the Rockets from the Cleveland Cavaliers in the trade that sent James Harden to the Brooklyn Nets back in January. While Exum joined the Rockets, he did not log any minutes for the team as he was...

Report: Rockets, John Wall working together to part ways

Photo by Michael Gonzales/NBAE via The Houston Rockets are working with John Wall to find him a new home for the upcoming season. After one year as a member of the Houston Rockets, it appears that John Wall’s time with the franchise is coming to an end. According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Wall and the Rockets have agreed to work together in hopes of finding the five-time All-Star a new home ahead of the 2021-22 NBA season. Per Charania, there are no plans for a buyout between Wall and the Rockets. Wall will attend training camp with the organization but...

Report: Rebuilding Rockets agree to try to trade John Wall

The Rockets met with John Wall and the two sides agreed it would be best if the veteran guard was moved to a new team, according to a report by The Athletic's Shams Charania. According to Charania, Wall will be around the team during tarining camp, which begins in two weeks, but won't play in games this season as the Rockets try to move him. Having Wall sit out will preserve his health, which has been an issue throughout his 10-year career. Wall has played more than 69 games in a season just four times and he hasn't done that since 2017. The sticking point is Wall has two years and $91.7...

NBA.com Legends profiles include plenty of Rockets lore

Set Number: X26784 TK2 Houston has a rich history. Over the last few days, NBA.com has released some additional content for their NBA History section, and the Houston Rockets are well-represented. The big standout to me was the full recap of the 1994-1995 season in which the Rockets won their second straight title, this time out of the sixth-seed. Hakeem Olajuwon also won his second straight NBA Finals MVP award by leading Houston through a murderer’s row of all-time great talent, including the 60-win Karl Malone-John Stockton Utah Jazz, the 59-win Charles Barkley...

Rick Adelman inducted into Basketball Hall of Fame

Photo by Bill Baptist/NBAE via It was a big day for the former Rockets coach. Former Houston Rockets head coach Rick Adelman received the highest honor yesterday when he was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. Adelman coached the Rockets from 2007-2011 and finished his Houston coaching career with a 193-135 (.588 percentage) regular season coaching record. At one point, he had the highest winning percentage of any Rockets coach, since being surpassed by both Kevin Mchale and Mike D’Antoni. He carried a postseason record with the Rockets of...

What if Dirk Nowitzki had signed with the Houston Rockets in 2014?

Photo by Glenn James/NBAE via During the 2014 NBA offseason, the Houston Rockets were desperate to make a move. Coming off a disappointing defeat in the first round thanks to Damian Lillard’s famous buzzer beater, Daryl Morey and the front office were looking to upgrade the roster. They desperately wanted a star power forward to pair with James Harden and Dwight Howard, but there weren’t many available. In those days, the best power forwards were LaMarcus Aldridge, Kevin Love, Chris Bosh, and...Dirk Nowitzki. Of those four, Nowitzki and Bosh were free agents after...

What if the Rockets played football? Here’s what the defense would look like

Photo by Bob Levey/ J.J. Watt can’t be on the defense unfortunately. Tonight, the Dallas Cowboys take the field and face off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to kick off the NFL season. And while this has absolutely nothing to do with Houston Rockets basketball, we figured this week we’d construct a football team featuring Rockets. Earlier this week, we revealed our starting 11 on offense, and today, we switch over to the defensive side of the ball.

If Rockets improve these three stats, play-in game could await

Photo by Michael Reaves/ So you’re telling me there’s a chance? The Houston Rockets are coming off their worst season in almost 20 years. They finished last year with the league’s worst record and a franchise-worst 20-game losing streak. So it comes as no surprise that the Rockets, in many experts’, bookmakers’, and some fan's eyes, have virtually no shot at making the playoffs. There is light at the end of the tunnel (no, not a train), and that is in the form of the NBA play-in game that was instituted last year and was approved again for this upcoming...

What if the Rockets played football? Here’s what the offense would look like.

Photo by Ken Murray/Icon Sportswire via I thought this was a basketball site. Football season is kicking off and while the NBA is off on vacation, we figured we’d have a little fun at TDS and imagine what a football team would look like if it was composed of Houston Rockets. Today, we’ll look at the offensive side of the ball, and later in the week, we’ll look at defense. Here’s what the offense would look like: Quarterback - Charlie Ward This decision was the easiest one on the whole roster. Ward, who played with the Rockets from 2004-05,...
