The Houston Rockets are ready to create a big three of their own.
Rockets owner Leslie Alexander told Fox 26 in Houston that the plan is to go big and try to add a third star to the roster.
“We’re going to have cap room to bring in a terrific free agent and I think next year we’ll be a lot better than we were this year,” Alexander said in an interview with FOX 26 Sports. “I think the nucleus is great. I think we have two of the brightest stars in the league. We have players who are going to be much better next year, young guys. We have a very good nucleus….
“We won 54 games,” Alexander said. “It’s tough to win 54 games in the NBA and the West is so stacked, it’s hard. We were the youngest team in the league in the playoffs. Just that alone will get us much better. I thought the team played hard. They did what they could and when you lose the other team was better.”
Alexander didn’t get specific with names, so he could be talking about anybody. Carmelo Anthony would make the Rockets formidable. But so would Rajon Rondo, who could offset a point guard like Damian Lillard.
