2014 NBA Draft: 5 Players the Houston Rockets Should Target

2014 NBA Draft: 5 Players the Houston Rockets Should Target

Houston Rockets NBA Draft

The Houston Rockets are going to have a pick in the late first round, but it ultimately will be determined by how they finish in the standings. Here are five players that they will be scouting in the next couple months though, and this one is a talent rich draft to be sure.

5. Wayne Selden

Selden has impressed some scouts even more than Andrew Wiggins; I am not quite in that boat, but the Rockets might be able to snag him in the late first round. If they fall in love with him during a workout, then they could also trade up for him by using Jeremy Lin as bait.

4. P.J. Hairston

It remains to be seen whether Hairston's issues off the court are behind him, but you can bet that he will get drafted because he can hit a three point shot. He also performed decently in the D-League, which should certainly help his case this summer.

The point guard out of Nevada might not have enough size to be a starter in the league, but I could see him being a nice sixth man for the Rockets. If they still have Jeremy Lin in the mix next season, then this probably will not go down.

Was lucky enough to see Ennis play last spring, and you can count me among his many believers. If Syracuse gets bounced early in the tournament, then the Rockets might be able to snag Ennis in the late first round. If they get to the Final Four though? Ennis is going in the lottery.

1. Doug McDermott

Is he the next Pete Maravich? He just might be. The Rockets would certainly have to trade up to get him, but I think that McDermott would be an absolutely perfect in Houston.
