Seth Partnow (analytics), Sam Vecenie (NBA draft/scouting) and Danny Leroux (CBA/Salary cap) discuss and break down the current state of the Houston Rockets from a team-building perspective, applying their expertise to trade scenarios and the overall makeup of the team.

It appears that undersized lineup, which offers added floor spacing with 3-point shooters at all five positions, might not be a passing fad.

Wojnarowski's report notes that there are several multi-team options in play for the 24-year-old dropping 14 and 14 in a relative down year and the Rockets could feasibly use Capela to bring back a draft asset that they could then flip for a wing. The trade deadline for National Basketball Association teams is set for February 6th. Central time on this Thursday, Feb. 6. He's averaging 13.9 points, 13.8 rebounds and 1.2 assists while shooting 62.9 percent from the field and 52.9 percent from the free-throw line.

A multi-team trade is regarded as a possibility.

Houston's James Harden, seeking a third consecutive National Basketball Association scoring title, leads the league with 35.7 points a game while backcourt partner Russell Westbrook has added 26.4 points a game. That, combined with his age, makes him a potential fit for both contenders and rebuilding teams, since he wouldn't be a threat to leave his new destination in free agency until 2023.
