Youth is served: Rockets to rely on 4 teen 1st round picks

HOUSTON (AP) If this Houston Rockets season was a movie, it would likely be called: Young and Younger.

With James Harden and P.J. Tucker both long gone, the Rockets are rebuilding from the ground up with an extraordinarily young roster.

After sinking to a franchise-worst 17-55 last season in the wake of the Harden trade with Brooklyn, they will look to four 19-year-old first-round picks to get the franchise moving in the right direction this year.
