The 2023-24 season has shown the Houston Rockets that they don't have enough star power. Alperen Sengun has been the closest thing to a star, but behind him, there hasn't been anyone who has emerged as a star-level player. 

In today's NBA, one star player isn't enough. 

Especially in the Western Conference. The Rockets' front office and ownership will surely be hoping to reel in a surefire superstar, which will require them to have some tough conversations regarding who to part with.

Let's take a look at three players that could be on the move this summer.

3. Jalen Green

Jalen Green is one of the more difficult Rockets players to understand. Sometimes, it seems he's improving and making developmental strides.

Other times, it seems he's not progressing.

Alot is being asked of him, as Rockets coach Ime Udoka is asking him to do things he didn't do under Stephen Silas. 

Green has the tools and athleticism to be an effective slasher, but he oftentimes loses the ball when he's driving and attacking. His long-range shot isn't as reliable as one would like, and he hasn't yet developed a go-to move.

He's still incredibly young (22-years-old) and unpolished. In other words, he still needs time to develop. But a team like the Rockets, who are eager to return to the postseason after a likely four-year hiatus, may not want to invest more time into developing a former second overall pick.

Green could be moved to a rebuilding team, who would have all the time in the world to devote to his growth.
