Houston Rockets’ Free Agency: 3 players still available that they should pursue
With the Golden State Warriors appearing to be the most vulnerable as they have been in the past five years, the Rockets should pursue one of their strong, young talents.
Kevon Looney was an impact player for the Warriors in the playoffs against the Rockets as he averaged 4.2 rebounds while shooting 77.8% from the field on only 18 minutes of action.
Because Golden State acquired D’Angelo Russell on Sunday night, they had to trade away long-time veteran and 2015 NBA Finals MVP, Andre Iguodala, which honorable mention, the Rockets should also pursue if the Memphis Grizzlies decide to buyout “Iggy”.
If the Rockets were to sign Looney, not only would they acquire a solid backup-center, which Houston lacks behind Capela, but they would also take away another piece from their long-time rivals.
The 6-foot-9-inch center would be a valuable rotational player for Houston.
Overall, these guys could really help the Rockets next season as the team looks to improve and finally take the West. Will they make it happen?
