Biggest Questions

  • What is James Harden’s future on this team? More importantly, what will Houston get in return for him if he is traded? Moving on from your franchise cornerstone is never easy, so the return for Harden will be one of the more pivotal moments in the franchise’s history.
  • Was Christian Wood worth his contract? Wood was Houston’s biggest free agent acquisition this offseason. While he’s shown flashes of greatness throughout his career, the sample size is too small to feel confident that he’s a top big man in this league.
