    Rockets To Target Brook Lopez, Dillon Brooks, Austin Reaves, Cam Johnson In Free Agency

    The Houston Rockets are well known to be suitors to sign James Harden in free agency. Outside of Harden, Houston has their sights set on several other free agents as well.

    The Rockets plan to target unrestricted free agents Brook Lopez and Dillon Brooks this summer. Houston will also look to negotiate with restricted free agents Austin Reaves and Cam Johnson too.

    The Rockets are also expected to entertain trade offers for the fourth overall pick in the 2023 NBA Draft. If Houston is going with win-now players in free agency, they may look to move that pick, along with young players, to bring in more veterans via trade.

    KELLY IKO/THE ATHLETIC

    Where would these players fit in, and what current players should we trade away? Delete if already posted.

    Iko has no inside info. He is either just following what the GM wants him to advertise or guessing. Never likes his analysis or takes.

    Planning ahead for that old Morey strategy of announcing “we almost had this or that deal done. We just came up short.”

    Forget Brooks, but if you added the others, along with expected growth and Udoka at the helm, I think potential play in team. Definite improvement and headed in the right direction.

    Cam Johnson and Austin Reaves are somewhat young and a timeline with the core group. . Lopez unless you get some vets makes no sense for both parties. Brooks makes no sense period

    IF you sign Reaves, does that make Jalen Green expendable?

    They play the same position ....

    Or would the plan be to play them together ??

    What about KPJ??

    Only way we’re landing Cam is with a team unfriendly contract.

    More to my point.
    Do NOT go the grocery store hungry just because you have money in your pocket. We got good stuff in the pantry.
