Daryl Morey has been open about not only adding a third star but also his owner Les Alexander being prepared to match any offer Chandler Parsons receives pushing the Houston Rockets into the luxury tax for the 2014-2015 campaign. Morey knows the time is right to go for it and he has the roster flexibility, cap room and assets to go any direction needed to put together a team poised to make a run at multiple championships.
Assuming Lebron James and Carmelo Anthony are not walking through the door, Morey has set his eyes on Chris Bosh. He’s both a natural fit next to Dwight Howard and he can be had for just the draft pick that would need to be packaged to dump Jeremy Lin and his ridiculous salary to a team like the 76’ers who have cap room and are not in the mix for the prized free agents.
A move like this would enable Morey to retain most of his draft picks, international players and trade exceptions to further strengthen the roster at the trade deadline or make it easier to tweak it come next off season.
Now if Bosh decides to go elsewhere or stay in Miami, Morey will turn his attention to plan B (or E, F, G, whichever one it is) and Kevin Love. This would be very painful for the Rockets as it’s expected they would have to deal Parsons. However, if there’s one person that can keep Parsons in Houston and trade for Love it would be Mr. Morey.
There are tons of rumors all over Twitter, message boards and on ESPN. The reality is none of us know who will go where. What we do know is Morey will find a way come hell or high water to improve this team.
If it’s Bosh, Love or someone else that has not even been linked to Houston we are in for an exciting next few days of free agency and the most anticipated Rockets season since the 1990’s.
