Houston Rockets were willing to cross the luxury tax line at deadline

The Houston Rockets are four days away from the NBA trade deadline and we’re all wondering if this is a better team than the one they had before they made the moves to send Clint Capela, Gerald Green and their 2020 first-round draft pick elsewhere.

The Houston Rockets have decided that they will fully commit to the small ball strategy without Capela and now P.J. Tucker and the newly-acquired Robert Covington will serve as the team’s centers. Each of these guys is 6-foot-5 and 6-foot-7 respectively.
