This is simply Rockets GM Daryl Morey covering his bases.
It’s an unlikely scenario right now, but it could happen if all three (James/Anthony/Bosh) are still free agents by the end of the weekend.
Pierce is the only one of the three that could potentially come to Houston as a bench player. However, he is reportedly still looking for close to $8-10 million, a number the Rockets can’t much, but they could potentially offer him the MLE if he is willing to lower his price to play for a contender.
