More Offseason Plans: Picking Up Rockets' Spare Pieces

As you all probably know, the Houston Rockets are doing everything in their power to make room for Dwight Howard and potentially Chris Paul. They have already cut loose two valuable bench players in Carlos Delfino and Aaron Brooks, and they may soon be putting Omer Asik on the trading block. Thomas Robinson may also be available, but he seems raw and it is a bit alarming that last years #5 pick is being shopped for the second time.

If I'm Neil Olshey, I would take advantage of the situation. Aaron Brooks, the Most Improved Player only three years ago, would fill our backup PG needs on the cheap, as well as being a fan favorite from his days at Oregon. Delfino is another solid wing player that would provide much-needed depth, and Asik would obviously be our defensive/rebounding presence. Asik would possibly cost us some future picks and perhaps Meyers Leonard, but I think he brings more to the table than Leonard.

Acquiring these players would give us immediate depth/playoff contention status as well as keeping our cap flexibility to bring in other assets, so I think that this would probably be up there in best case scenarios for the Blazers. Thoughts?
