Should the Rockets be interested in DeMarre Carroll?

We’ve heard alot about how the Houston Rockets have been trying to load up on wings, which makes sense considering the small-ball system they employ. This system was put to use by Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni to enable Russell Westbrook to thrive as both a passer and a scorer.

In this offense, Westbrook is surrounded by multiple 3-point shooters, and he’s also defended by big men in the paint, which is a mismatch every time. The Rockets have been playing 6-foot-5 forward PJ Tucker at center, and 6-foot-7 Danuel House at power forward, which provides amazing spacing for Russ to operate in the paint or to kick out to shooters.
