Fred VanVleet and Dillon Brooks as the Rockets’ two veteran voices is the ultimate “devil on one shoulder, angel on the other” setup. AK – 2:14 PM

So far in #NBAFreeAgency
Best deal: Fred VanVleet to Rockets
Most value for money: Kyle Kuzma to Wizards
Most spectacular: Tyrese Haliburton max extension
Most intriguing: Bruce Brown to Pacers
Most under the radar: Dennis Schroder to Raptors AM

The 2023-24 Houston Rockets depth chart
1: VanVleet, Porter jr, Hudgins
2: Green, Thompson
3: Brooks, Whitmore
4: Smith jr, Eason
5: Sengun, Landale
Leadership (VanVleet) and ambitious (young core) in the mix. The #Rockets will be a problem under Ime Udoka’s guidance. – 5:02 AM
Yossi Gozlan @YossiGozlan
Great call by @BimaThug. This is likely how the Rockets will structure their moves.
Use cap space on Fred VanVleet, Jeff Green, Jock Landale, & Patty Mills.
Aggregate Mills with TyTy Washington, Usman Garuba, & Josh Christopher in a three team sign and trade for Dillon Brooks. – 12:28 AM
Zach Lowe @ZachLowe_NBA
What does Dame trade landscape look like? What about Harden to LAC? 3-team possibilities? Plus: FVV, Toronto future, Haliburton, Bane, PHX working the minimum market, Lakers winning free agency, much more:
