Led by Jalen Green and Jabari Smith Jr., the rebuilding Rockets have become much more competitive during the month of March. It comes at a good time, too, since Houston is about to enter the 2023 offseason with significant salary cap room and with a clear incentive to win next season.
Future Hall of Famers Draymond Green and Klay Thompson of the Warriors are among those taking notice, with both legends complimenting Smith and fellow rookie Tari Eason after Golden State’s trip to Houston earlier this week.
So, how are the Rockets doing it? In this week's episode of The Lager Line (sponsored by Clutch City Lager of Karbach Brewing), hosts Ben DuBose and Paulo Alves break down Houston’s improved run of form in recent games, along with an early look at the team’s offseason options. Those possibilities include a potential contract extension for KJ Martin, and even making a trade bid for Boston star Jaylen Brown.
