With the All Star game approaching in a couple of weeks and many teams falling further in the standings, the Houston Rockets have the opportunity to trade for a power forward who would compliment Lin & Harden. Bleacher Report looked at five players who just might do the trick. On the list are some intriguing names like Pau Gasol, but there are others interesting names in the mix not previously connected to trade talks.
The Rockets are currently one of the worst defensive teams in the league. They need an enforcer, someone who can clog the middle of the lane and reject shots away from the rim. Another offensive minded player instead of complimenting Lin and Harden would likely set the team back. Such a player would need time to fit into the offense. A defensive minded player could just slide right in and begin to make an immediate impact.
