Rockets’ Plan: Re-Sign Chris Paul, “Hunt” LeBron James 

 

The Houston Rockets have lost two straight games but are still playing one of the best seasons in franchise history with an amazing 25-6 record. The team seems to get better and better every game. Before the season, there were some concerns about how the two superstars will be able to co-exist. But the two have figured it out quicky. The Rockets have emerged as real contenders and it’s hard to think about how the team could get even better next year.

But the Rockets have a plan to do exactly that – get even better. Apparently, the Rockets believe they can still add the biggest star in the league, LeBron James, who could become a free agent in the offseason. That’s not all, they also plan to resign their All-Star point guard Chris Paul.

We know that Chris Paul and LeBron James are very close friends. But in order to make this big three (probably the best big 3 in the league) possible, both Paul and James would have to give up a lot of money.

ESPN’s Zach Lowe reported that the Rockets will be hunting for LeBron James next offseason nontheless.

 

They are underdogs, maybe big ones, but Morey has long promised that he will go for it if he thinks Houston has even a 5 percent chance of winning a ring. He will hunt likely LeBron this summer, per league sources, and hopes to sign Paul to another long-term deal. With Clint Capela and Trevor Ariza headed toward free agency, just bringing this group back could vault Houston well into the luxury tax. Tilman Fertitta, the team’s new owner, has said he would pay the tax to preserve a contender.

 

A team of LeBron James, James Harden and Chris Paul would truly be a game-changer.
