From SB Nation's Andrew Sharp:
So the Rockets have officially lost Yao Ming, yes, but with players like Trevor Ariza, Carl Landry, Aaron Brooks, and Luis Scola, there's still plenty of excitement in Houston.
And even moreso, now the Rockets have signed Rashad McCants, who will provide offense in bunches off the bench. Yao or no Yao, the Rockets will be fun to watch next year.
So, uh, about Jermaine Taylor and Chase Budinger having to earn a roster spot? Yeah, it's going to be even tougher now. With our backcourt still shuffled the way it is, more competition isn't a bad thing.
Or perhaps the front office isn't as confident in the two rookies as once thought...
