Offseason: Some stars the Rockets should look to acquire
Most of the All-Stars that are available either would be too difficult to trade for or would not fit with the Rockets. So instead, Houston maybe should look to sign some near-stars or former stars in the league.
Someone that’s been talked about as a potential buyout possibility is Carmelo Anthony. Before you complain, hear me out. He is certainly not the same player that he once was, but he could be had for cheap and would be in a much better system for his talents. Anyone would help when it comes to taking down a super team like Golden State. If he doesn’t work out, the Rockets could cut their losses and waive him.
Tyreke Evans was originally someone I was going to put in this post. Unfortunately, he was just signed by the Indiana Pacers for one-year, $12 million. He would’ve been a great fit in Houston.

Jabari Parker would be an interesting fit but wouldn’t come cheap. The Rockets would have to clear some cap space elsewhere before offering him a deal. Parker is a restricted free agent and can have any offer matched by the Bucks. He’s also had a couple of ACL injuries in the last few years.
Next: Rockets sign Michael Carter-Williams
There aren’t a ton of options out there for the Rockets. They’ve had a quiet offseason so far and should look to improve the roster after the DeMarcus Cousins news. I trust Daryl Morey to make the Rockets into the best possible team to match up against the Warriors.
