Josh Smith, Luis Scola, and the Future

I've been doing a lot of reading about the whole  Josh Smith trade scenario, and I've come to a few conclusions. I'd say the Rockets should welcome a trade, as long as it doesn't move Patrick Patterson or Chase Budinger, as I feel that they are the futures of this team. Speaking of which, the future is the only thing the rockets should have their mind on right now. Here are some things the Rockets should consider moving forward


Josh Smith: The reason I like the idea of having the soon to be former Hawk on our team is that he is still a developing player. He is young, athletic, and defensive. Sure he has some kinks that need to be ironed out, but he is the type of player a contender needs, along with a true star.

Luis Scola: In my opinion, the best player on our team. At almost 31, he is nearing the end of his peak years. If I were Morey, I would consider moving him while his value is still relatively high. I would love the prospect of trading him to a contender, say the Lakers, for Andrew Bynum. But alas, I'm not one to put out fires with gasoline. 

Kevin Martin: I feel like we are all inclined to trade him. Yet for who, I don't understand. There really isn't another player at his position on the market that can do his job better than he can (I doubt Indiana will let Granger go.) He is still in his 20's (late) so fits perfectly with the team's plans. Trading him for another position would leave a gap at the 2 guard, which Lee cannot play alone.

Yao Ming: We all love you Yao, but I think your time is up. Sign and trade for a competent big, while we still can. I have a horrible feeling he's going to somehow end up in Miami though...

 

All in all, I feel like the Rockets aren't going to make any noise for the next 3 years. And during that time period, we should put all of our chips into preparing for the future. What do y'all think?
