Do you like forwards? Because the Houston Rockets like forwards. Here's another forward. It's Terrence Jones, from Kentucky. He's not the forward you thought the Rockets might take. Jared Sullinger? Perry Jones III? Nope, Terrence Jones.

The Rockets aren't concerned with positions when they draft, in case you haven't noticed over the past few years. They took the player they thought was the best available, even though I might disagree. Jones III has a chance to become a much better player on both ends given his height and athleticism. Yeah, he disappears sometimes, but didn't Terrence Jones? Let's hope the Rockets have a deal with another team that centers around Jones, because I just can't agree with the pick otherwise.

Here we are again, fans. These players are suddenly all "assets," because there is no way the Rockets will keep all three on the roster. We're still at assets. We haven't reached an endgame. We're still at assets.
