03:58 PM ET 01.22 | ESPN.com's Tom Haberstroh threw out some names in an insiders-only piece that the Rockets could target and a few of them make some sense. Two names mentioned that stick out are C.J. Miles from Cleveland and Thabo Sefolosha from Oklahoma City. Of the two, Miles makes the most sense, since the Cavaliers might actually trade with the Rockets, where as the Thunder may avoid helping a conference rival, even if it lands them a big man like Asik. Miles isn't a defensive threat, but he would help the Rockets' three-point shooting, as he's hitting around 40 percent from deep in Cleveland. A trade may not happen, but regardless of the names being mentioned, and you can read Haberstroh's piece for more of them, it's clear the Rockets may have to look at a trade if they want to get one final push over the top.

Wow! More shooters! Don't they have too much already? They need a defensive stopper in the wings.

They have no problem scoring the ball....but their team defense is weak.

It's usually fun watching them play and piling up points, but until they bring in some defenders they'll always have trouble getting past the second round.
