The 2023-24 NBA regular season is over. Soon, we'll be watching games with real stakes. Twenty teams around the league still hold a chance to win an NBA title, pending the results of the play-in tournament.

You know what that means - the offseason is already here for ten teams. Unfortunately, the Houston Rockets are one of those teams. They made a spirited run in the home stretch, but they weren't able to secure a spot in the tournament.

Rest assured that the Rockets' brass is already considering the 2024-25 season. They won't leave a stone unturned. The Rockets will consider the draft, the trade market, and free agency.

Most of this team's core figures to be back in 2024-25. With that said, there will be some roster churn. Here are four Rockets that ought to be playing somewhere else in 2024-25.

4. Reggie Bullock

Honestly? We like Bullock. We're just not sure where Ime Udoka stands.

Think about it. Bullock connected on 40.9% of his three-pointers in 2023-234. Somehow, even on a Houston Rockets team that was starved for floor spacing (more on that later), he only managed 9.6 minutes per game.

That rotation spot might as well be reserved for a rookie. Moreover, if the Rockets make any major changes, they may be looking to free up room in the rotation. Whatever it was that kept the aging Bullock out of games in 2023-24 is likely to be exacerbated next season.

It's time to move on from the veteran sharpshooter.
