2011 NBA Draft: Are the Houston Rockets Looking for a Center?

ESPN?s Chad Ford believes the Houston Rockets could be major players on draft night.  The team isn?t ruling out any options, and they could move up by trading a veteran.  Ford offered his opinion during a recent fan chat:

?Daryl Morey is always trying to make a play. From what I can gather, everyone in Houston is on the table. Everyone. It's a good strategy. I don't think the Rockets are married to moving up. Nor are they married to getting vets. They're just looking for the best possible deal. I wouldn't be shocked to see Kevin Martin or Luis Scola moved. If they keep 14, look for them to try to add a center or point guard. Bismack Biyombo, Nikola Vucevic and Jimmer are options there. If they move up, I agree that Valanciunas could be the guy.?

Adding Jimmer Fredette would be a good decision for the Rockets over a center.  The team doesn?t have much depth after Kyle Lowry, so if Jimmer is on the board at No. 14 he?d fit a pressing needs in Houston.

The team could also benefit from some rebounding help, since Chuck Hayes is a free agent, but that still doesn?t change the fact that a point guard is a must during this year?s draft for Houston.
