The Houston Rockets are itching to make a move, and Daryl Morey's finger is on the trigger and ready to pull. The Chicago Bulls may have just gotten in the way of that GM's main target, Carmelo Anthony, but the fans in Texas should still hold out some hope. Joining a pair of athletes like James Harden and Dwight Howard has to be enticing, and especially for a small forward who has been used with the likes of Raymond Felton and Tyson Chandler.
The Houston area has a lot of benefits to offer Anthony, but many of those same factors may not entice his wife to approve a move there. These are obviously factors that come into play during a family decision, so Morey might have to sell more to the lady than the gentleman.
This is a forthcoming move, but they are just waiting for the right moment. There was a time when I thought Jeremy Lin might be joining Phil Jackson, the newly appointed President of the New York Knicks, back in the birthplace of Linsanity. Their recent trade of Felton tosses that possibility out the window, and Lin could be on the move to a different team as a result.
It must be said that a lot of the Rockets' issues in the playoffs were related to coaching. My take on the situation is that Kevin McHale might be on the hot seat this season, but that is mainly due to some of the rumored assistant coaches Morey is considering this summer. This could be a somewhat sad situation to keep an eye on regarding the former Boston Celtic.
This is not entirely in the Rockets' control, but Chandler Parsons probably does not want to leave a situation he recruited Dwight Howard to last offseason. It seems like the small forward truly loves his role and minutes, and I do not see him wanting to leave those things.
Pat Riley and LeBron James seem strangely silent about Chris Bosh lately, which could be bad news for him. The "Big 3" did have dinner last week, and it all seems like they are going to ink longer deals. If the Heat end up leaving Bosh on table, then I could see the jump-shooting PF heading to Houston.
