The Houston Rockets entered free agency with several key free agents in limbo. Players like Dwight Howard and Terrence Jones were expected to leave yet others futures were uncertain.

As expected Howard and Jones departed and it’s anticipated Josh Smith and Jason Terry will follow suit. The only uncertainty is Donatas Motiejunas who as of this posting remains a free agent.

It’s a salient point, but it’s going to get tiresome talking about the Rockets’ offense and dealing with the constant “No defense tho"
