Rockets Likely To Shop Third Overall Pick

Rafael Stone Could Sign Extension With Rockets In Offseason

The Houston Rockets had some luck in the 2024 NBA Draft Lottery. The Rockets, who got their pick from the Brooklyn Nets in the James Harden trade in 2021, moved from the ninth overall pick to the third overall pick in the 2024 NBA Draft.
