2012 NBA Draft Grades: Terrence Jones to Houston Rockets at No. 18
Houston Rockets| Last Season: 34-20 | Draft Picks: 12, 16, 18
Season Summary: The Rockets fell two games short of the playoffs during the 2011-12 season and this is beginning to become a frustrating trend considering this marks their third-straight year with a winning record without a playoff appearance.
Draft Needs: The recent trade of Chase Budinger to the Minnesota Timberwolves makes it seem like Houston will be going for a big man in the first round—especially with two picks. A small forward that could make an immediate impact playing alongside Luis Scola may be just what this team needs.
#18 Pick: Terrence Jones | PF | Kentucky
2012-2013 Outlook: With the pace this team has been going over the last three years, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the Rockets finally got over the hump next season and reached the playoffs as a lower seed. This team may be lacking a big superstar name, but there are plenty of talented low-key players that could certainly help this team reach the playoffs.
