The Houston Rockets find themselves in an interesting situation, as it pertains to the contracts on their books. The Rockets have opted to undergo an organic rebuild, as they've stockpiled talent through the NBA Draft by bottoming out.

The Rockets landed Jalen Green. Jabari Smith Jr., and Amen Thompson as a result of their tanking efforts and appear to set up well for the future. Granted, it wasn't always pretty, as Rockets fans have had to suffer quite extensively but it was a worthy sacrifice.

The Houston Rockets have several of the NBA's most underpaid players heading into next season.

In the end, the Rockets acquired a bevy of young talent on cheap, rookie-scaled deals. This is pivotal for a team aspiring to return to contention-status, as teams with those aspirations generally get there by having several intricate players outplay their contractual value.

This figures to be a rather easy task for the Rockets, as essentially their entire young core is on team-friendly deals.

We provided a list of the most overpaid players on the team, now let's take a look at Houston's four-most underpaid players ahead of next season.
