Most of the top free agents have agreed to deals, however there are many players that can still round out a roster on the veteran’s minimum. Since the Rockets are capped out financially, this is likely where Houston will be turning to. Below are several candidates who would add value to the Rockets.
Although NBA free agency is upon us, it largely has come and gone. Aside from Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green, nearly all of the most coveted players have already been signed. Meanwhile, other veterans such as Jared Dudley, Willie Cauley-Stein and Wilson Chandler have all been picked up for the veterans minimum. The Rockets are still seeking to add veterans who they can give minimum contracts to, as they are capped out but still need to round out their roster.
Below are eight remaining players the Rockets can target. Many of these players are available in free agency, but some of them will need to first be bought out by their respective teams. It’s well-known that the Rockets are interested in JaVale McGee and have interest in Andre Iguodala (if he is bought out by the Memphis Grizzlies), so for the purposes of this writing, I won’t include those two. This writing will focus primarily on veterans who the Rockets will likely be able to bring in on minimum, low risk deals.
