For the fourth time in the past five seasons, the Rockets had their season ended by the Golden State Warriors. That means another offseason filled with questions about how to finally dethrone the NBA's dominant team.
The good news for the Rockets: All five starters are under contract for next season. The bad news: The Rockets will pay them $114 million, which already puts them over the salary cap.
This offseason, the Rockets will need to find a way to improve the bench, and Nenê, who played well in the postseason but can't be counted on for heavy minutes, is the only rotation player under contract.
