Best Potential Trade Targets for the Houston Rockets

January 29th, 2016 by Kelly Scaletta Leave a reply »

Every time the Houston Rockets start to look like they might be getting things together, they go out and make you doubt them again. That’s no less true now than it was when they dropped their first three games by 20-plus.

After losing by 31 to the San Antonio Spurs on Jan. 27—fresh off the Spurs’ own 30-point destruction at the hands of the Golden State Warriors—the Rockets established that, as constructed, they have no place on the court with either the Spurs or Warriors.

Even considering the return of Josh Smith, who the Rockets re-acquired Jan. 23 in a trade with the Los Angeles Clippers, the team doesn’t have the talent to beat either of the West’s powerhouses.

Ergo, if general manager Daryl Morey wants to get back to the conference finals or beyond, he’ll need to make a move. But who can he land who will make a difference? Houston may chase all of these names or none of them. But these are the best players who are allegedly available and the ones who would have the best chance of pushing the Rockets to the next level.
