    Lock if already posted. Houston made on the three most likely teams to sign Durant next summer

    "Houston Rockets

    Seriously? Seriously.

    Although the Rockets still struck a trade for Lawson, their offseason has been uncharacteristically quiet, marked more by continuity than general manager Daryl Morey purging the roster of contracts to secure another marquee name.

    Next summer won't be so quiet. ESPN.com's Marc Stein reported ahead of last season that the Rockets wanted to give Harden a crack at recruiting his former teammate, and they're perfectly positioned to do just that.

    Dwight Howard's free agency (player option) could throw a wrench in their plans. But if the Rockets want him alongside Harden and Durant, Lawson's contract is nonguaranteed, and Morey can look to jettison other mid-level deals, like those of Corey Brewer and K.J. McDaniels.

    Not that Howard is a lock to return if he hits the open market. He'll be 30 years old, and the Rockets have a promising rim protector in Clint Capela with which to supplant him. Terrence Jones and Donatas Motiejunas also qualify as stretch 5s and will be eligible for extensions in 2016. The Rockets could look to a center-by-committee model in hopes of saving a few shekels.

    Either way, with so much frontcourt talent at their disposal, the Rockets should be amply motivated to cobble together the necessary cap space and sell Durant on the opportunity to join a ready-made championship contender. "

    ive never thought of this before. harden and durant did play together on the thunder... hmmm maybe they still have each others cell numbers... hmmm maybe we can trade dwight for durant... and another idea trade lawson and beverley for westbrook (beverley and westbrook probably wont want to play together)

    westbrook
    harden
    ariza
    durant
    capella

    wait mchale would probably want a top 5 player in the league to come off the bench when you have westbrook and durant on the team. and also durant and capella is a pretty skinny pf/c combo. maybe we should keep howard then.

    westbrook
    harden
    durant
    peleincubus (screw it ill play for free to help with cap issues)
    howard

    this is complicated and confusing. can anyone else figure out how all these trades will go down and the best way for it to work? thanks in advance

    For half a year half of this forum keeps talking how Durant might come and no one blinks an eye. Bleachereport guy writes the same thing and everyone's outrageous.
