The Houston Rockets are heading into one of the most important seasons in recent memory. With the Western Conference as wide open as it is, securing a high seed for the playoffs will be pivotal. With every game feeling like it is a must win, who should be in the starting lineup on a night in and night out basis?

Last season, the Houston Rockets needed to change up their starting lineup after losing Trevor Ariza to free agency. They decided to start three guards, having Eric Gordon in the lineup as the super small forward.

Will they do something similar to last year, or change it up a bit? Throughout this article, I will lay out three different options for a potential starting lineup, and give my reasoning as to why that could be the best option for the Houston Rockets heading into the 2019-2020 campaign.

Let’s go right into it with a dream starting lineup.

Next: Dream scenario?
