Russell Westbrook and Robert Covington were supposed to make this Houston Rockets team more dangerous. Instead, after a promising season, James Harden and the Rockets find themselves in a familiar situation -- eliminated in the second round.
The Rockets are known for turning over their roster, including the acquisitions of Chris Paul and then Westbrook. This offseason, the lack of roster flexibility and draft assets will present a challenge. They also have decisions to make on possible extensions for Harden, Westbrook and P.J. Tucker.
Another big decision this offseason will be who will be coaching next season, after Sunday's news that Mike D'Antoni is departing.
