Houston Rockets: What's Next? A Trade?


The first week of free agency has been an exciting one. With all of the big names gone and teams starting to fill their rosters with glue guys most fans are wondering will there be any surprise moves coming? Perhaps a trade that makes a GM look like a genius similar to the one Daryl Morey pulled off last year for James Harden?

Today is a stormy day in Houston and about as good as any other to play the fantasy trade game so I’ll ask you guys what trade would you like to see happen? I’m sure The front office of the Rockets are still running through ideas in the think tank inside of the Toyota Center, and don’t doubt they will surprise us yet again.

I will start the debate off by mentioning two players I would like to see the Rockets reach for.

First let’s talk about moving Jeremy Lin and “an unhappy http://inthecapital.streetwise.co/2013/07/08/as-howard-leaves-for-houston-asik-to-wizards-rumors-swirl/ ” Omer Asik for John Wall. Sounds interesting right? Clearing those two players might allow the rockets to offer him an extension that the Washington Wizards may or may not be willing to next year. Any takers on that one?

How about trying to bring a little “Love” to H-town? Yes, I am referring to The Kevin Love from the Minnesota Timberwolves. Perhaps re-uniting him with his former coach and one of his good friends in Dwight Howard would be the fresh start that he seems to be in need of as much as Mr. Howard did. Just a thought.

If there are any math guys or girls out there who can make the contracts work out let’s hear it and since social media seems to be the best platform to start a movement tweet us at @SpaceCity_Scoop

    Maybe Lebron James is available. Kevin Durant, maybe? Clippers might be shopping Chris Paul too, right after re-signing him. Neither of the two players you’re talking about trading for are even remotely available this year. May want to fantasize about something that could possibly happen. Just sayin….

      You have no clue what you’re talking about…

      “Maybe Lebron James is available. Kevin Durant, maybe? Clippers might be shopping Chris Paul too, right after re-signing him.”

      Kevin Durant is staying with OKC like he already said numorous times. Houston cant afford to get any of the 3 players you named. Why the hell would the Clippers be dealing Chris Paul after making so many changes to the team to keep him? And do you see how big of a contract he signed? Lol … Please tell me this was sarcasm.

      Snake > Raiden

        Haha!! Wow. Didn’t think I left any doubt as to the sarcasm in that post. Then again, anybody who thinks Snake could beat Raiden could be excused for being somewhat slow…..unless, of course, you meant Snake Pliskin, who’s only equal MAY be Chuck Norris.
