1. Giannis Antetokoumnpo 

Forget Sengun. Forget Thompson. Disregard any discourse about fit: 

If Giannis Antetokoumnpo becomes available, you just go for it. 

Some will disagree. They'll say that at 29, Antetokoumnpo is a candidate to age poorly. To be sure, players who rely on physical advantages can reach the end of their career more quickly than folks would like. 

This is Giannis Antetokoumnpo. If he's on your roster, you have a chance to win an NBA title. That will be true for at least a few more years. If he becomes available, the Rockets should look to pivot. 

That's exactly why, as it stands, Antetokoumnpo is not said to be available. The Bucks would not part with him easily. Still, if Milwaukee follows up a disappointing season with another dud, we wouldn't be surprised to see trade rumors heating up. 

Rest assured, the Rockets will be on the list of interested suitors.
