Rockets GM Daryl Morey Meets With The Media To Discuss The Draft (And Mention The Aborted Pau Gasol Trade A Few Times)

While the NBA Playoffs have been rolling toward their exciting conclusion in Miami and Oklahoma City, back here in Houston, the Rockets have been busy trying to figure out how they can somehow come out of the next few months of NBA player activity with a team that at least feels like a threat to make the playoffs in 2012-13.

By whatever means necessary -- the draft next week, free agency, craigslist -- the time is now for the Rockets to go from Daryl Morey's personal "asset swap" garage sale to a roster built around someone, someone either with serious perennial All-Star potential or (gasp) an actual perennial All-Star.
