The Houston Rockets are in need of an upgrade in the frontcourt, as their small-ball strategy from last season departed with Mike D’Antoni. Could Indiana Pacers center Myles Turner be the answer?

Their strategy for this offseason is unclear, as they still need a head coach and Daryl Morey has just stepped down. Regardless, Houston is expected to change course off of D’Antoni’s small ball philosophy, and they could certainly benefit from adding some size.

As the Rockets assess their options, they’ll find a player who reportedly would be open to a change of scenery in Turner. He has been relegated to a smaller role since Domantas Sabonis has entered the Pacers’ starting lineup.

Turner, 24, would fill a big need for the Rockets heading into next season and the years to come. He fits a modern style that would work quite well with Houston’s playmakers.

Let’s examine three packages the Rockets could offer the Pacers in order to acquire Turner.
