Houston Rockets Intend to Keep Yao and Tracy as Nucleus

The Rockets, however, have made their position clear. They do plan to continue to build around the Yao-McGrady plan. They are not going to blow it up.

They cannot, however, sit still and hope that all they need is better luck.

They need more than that. More specifically, they need a makeover at the backup shooting guard/small forward spot similar to the infusion of help they got at power forward last off-season. They need more at the point, just as they did last season. And they need to solidify the center spot behind Yao Ming. [Houston Chronicle]
