The Rockets had room to burn amid an unprecedented cap spike, and concluded they couldn’t stand pat — or trawl the bargain bin for cheapo guys with potential to develop into trade assets. “We had a choice: keep our powder dry and value play, or go for two blue-chip players past the obvious superstars,” Morey said. “It was a tough cap environment. You have to spend the money on someone.” Don’t let the meager leftover cap room fool you: Houston still wants stars. “Teams that win it all generally have two top-10 players,” Morey said. “We have one. We will always look for more.”

The Rockets are confident everyone will thrive in D’Antoni’s go-go system, bumping up their trade value, and that they can open cap space in a pinch — via trade, waiver, or an unexpected cap leap. “We may have created some downside risk for ourselves,” Morey said. “But if we’re as good we think we are gonna be — and that’s a team that gets home-court in first round, or just short of that — I don’t see any problems getting it done.”
