The Houston Rockets have dominated the offseason for the last two years, and Daryl Morey has never been afraid to make a big move. He should complete another one in the next couple weeks, but it would surprise me to see anything happen before the draft. The Carmelo Anthony rumor is addressed here, and we will also touch on the end of Linsanity. These are five things the Rockets should address before the season begins.
I think that Anthony is going to join the Chicago Bulls, and it is not a bad idea at all. Staying in a large market would certainly please his wife. The prospect of playing with Joakim Noah does not hurt the chances of this happening either, because we all remember that the Bulls' center and Melo had a little chat during All-Star weekend. The Rockets will land another star, though.
Francisco Garcia was once a productive player. Those days are now long past, and I bet that Morey is not too pleased about his role players at the moment. If the GM is able to grab a third superstar, then I do not think he would have much trouble luring some veterans to fill out the bench. Garcia should be riding the pine quite a bit more next season.
Kevin McHale might have heard the latest rumors about Lionel Hollins, and the former Boston Celtic should most definitely be concerned. The former leader of the Memphis Grizzlies is being pursued as an assistant for the Rockets, but it also feels like he could be a potential head coach for them down the line.
It is looking like Linsanity will be be short-lived in Houston, but they will only move him for the right offer. The story of Jeremy Lin crashing on his brother's couch is famous; he might have to do a bit more couch-surfing this summer. There are too many juicy trades out there, and this seems like a franchise ready to make a move.
No. This is not the Olympics, and we will not be seeing James Harden, Dwight Howard and LeBron James on the same team. The four-time league MVP should start to think more about his future after the weekend, but I am betting that he ultimately decides to stick with Pat Riley in South Beach.
