Houston Rockets: Top contender in free agency sweepstakes?
The Houston Rockets managed to pry Dwight Howard away from the L.A. Lakers, now, they appear poised to be making another run at Carmelo Anthony of the New York Knicks. The Rockets pulled the trigger on Omer Asik yesterday, trading away the disgruntled big man to the New Orleans Pelicans for cash and a 2015, conditional, first-round pick.
That move in and of itself frees up about $15-million in cash for the Rockets who had been handcuffed by the Asik deal all of last season. And the Rockets might not be done dealing!
