The next weakest link is small forward (see my review of Chase Budinger). As the last selection in the lottery, the best player available for Houston will be Jordan Hamilton, a scorer from the University of Texas. He can play either wing position, but at 6' 8", he is a natural shooting forward. He can put the ball in the hole, averaging almost 18 ppg last season and hitting .385 from the 3-point line. He can rebound well too, at 7.7 per game. Those numbers are almost double Budinger's stats, though obviously Hamilton's stats were in college. Jordan is a decent defender and ball-handler at best, but the talent is there for him to be a solid NBA player with a little coaching. Originally from southern California, his two year stint in Austin gives him a local flavor.
OK, that's my pick. Jordan Hamilton will make the Rockets a little bit better.
