Thanks to Wednesday’s trade sending Christian Wood to Mavericks, the Houston Rockets suddenly have three first-round selections at No. 3 overall, No. 17 (via Brooklyn), and No. 26 (via Dallas).
Will they keep all three of those selections, or are further trades possible in the final days leading up to the draft on Thursday, June 23?
Other topics discussed on Friday’s podcast include:
- Value obtained by Rockets general manager Rafael Stone in the Wood trade
- Options at No. 17 and No. 26 in the order
- Whether Paolo Banchero is a lock at No. 3, or if other names (Jabari Smith, Chet Holmgren, or Jaden Ivey) could still be in play
- Potential options for Stone and the Rockets leading up to the NBA’s 2022 free agency period at the end of June
