    This is an interesting piece that talks about rebuilding of a team. I say it is possible to go this route, but there are only so many free agents that are available and smaller market teams will struggle to attract some of the bigger stars, so yeah, maybe, but I am not quite sure.

    I'm very impressed with what Houston has done. They've been stuck in the high lottey forever, but they've seemingly made a run at every available big name also.

    They always have options and flexibility it seems.

    Sure you can stay in the winning record and do a rebuild.... But they didn't rebuild a championship team into a 2nd championship team....

    It is also way to soon to say how this new rockets team is going to meld together, they may or may not be a title contender over the next 3-4 years.
