The Best and Nothing Less

How will Anderson fit into the system and fill in the spot left by D-Mo?     Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

By: Jordan Smith

On Saturday, the Houston Rockets have found what looks to be D-Mo's replacement in Ryan Anderson. They signed him to a 4 year, $80 Million deal. This 6'10" wall is one of the best shooting big men in the NBA, but can struggle sometimes on defense. He averaged 17 PPG, 6 rebounds per game, and shot 42.7% from the field, which was one of the league's highest shooting percentages last season.

Stay tuned to Houston Sports Beat for the latest in all things Houston Rockets Free Agency.

Will the Rockets succeed without Howard?     Pool Photo-USA TODAY Sports

Dwight Howard is not coming back to Houston.

He has signed a 3-Year, $70.5 Million deal to head back home to where it all began for him as a child in Atlanta. He is now a member of the Hawks. I have always enjoyed Dwight Howard here as a Houston Rocket. I don't have any animosity on Dwight and I wish him nothing but the best going home to Atlanta.

Now, on the other hand, no matter what Dwight decided to do, it was going to help the Rockets either way. If he would have come back, then we would have the most dominate big man in the NBA once again. If we didn't get him (and we didn't), then the Houston Rockets would have upwards of $45+ Million to spend on improving the team through free agency and trades (and this is just the money from Dwight's contract and the league-wide salary cap raise). Not to mention that they don't have D-Mo and Terrence Jones on contract. So, you can add about an extra $5 Million to that total. So, the Houston Rockets have at minimum $50 Million to rebuild the team, start over, and create the perfect roster that is going to bring that elusive NBA Championship back home to Houston.

What do yall think about D12 going back home? Leave a comment down below on what you think and be sure to follow my blog and my twitter! Thanks for reading.

Are the Rockets moving on from Howard already?     Jamie Rhodes-USA TODAY Sports

With the 35th pick in the NBA draft, the Houston Rockets selected Chinanu Onuaku, Center from Louisville. This 6'10", 230 pound Center is a very good player that has had his way in college, averaging 9.9 points per game and 8.5 rebounds per game, as well as 2.0 blocks per game and a shooting percentage of 62%. Want to see what this guy can do? Here's a video of his highlight reel from this past season below.
