James Harden plans to be an active member of the Houston Rockets' recruiting efforts this summer.

"Hell, yeah," Harden said. "There's a lot of good options out there."

Asked specifically about Dwight Howard, Harden broke into a smile and added: "Maybe. Possibly."

The Rockets will have max-level cap space to utilize this summer.

 
"Maybe. Possibly". -Translation: Hell Yea....

Lin and Harden is a great start.

 

They'll manage to grab somebody.

Lin

Harden

Parsons

If i'm Dwight I go here. McHale and Hakeem make it even more desirable as a center.

Plus the fact that Dwight can make just about the same there as he can with us when you factor in all the taxes & money our beloved state would take away when Texas would not.

Not gonna lie if I was Dwight I would think about going there. They have no state tax, a better team, better coach......

But the Lakers ARE the Lakers, and people don't usually up and leave Los Angeles to go live somewhere else.

Are they the better team? 

We beat them more times this season(once without Kobe) as well as finishing the season with a better record dealing with injuries all year.

The only reason they weren't swept is because OKC lost Westbrook.

If Thomas Robinson could build into a decent player they'd be great.

But acquiring a guy like Josh Smith or Al Jefferson would be NICE!!!

They're the youngest team in the league and all their young guys this season got better. We are one of the oldest teams in the league, hardly made the playoffs, and wouldn't have won more than 1 or 2 games even if fully healthy.

I'd certainly say their situation is less cloudy than ours. We still have more questions than answers.

There is a big difference though, in management. Houston is ready to spend money, but not go far over the luxary tax like say Los Angeles, Boston, Miami  Brooklyn if it means a championship.

The Celtics already went after Smith last year, so that's not a reach to think they'll put the feelers out for him again.

 

The Celtics have some very tough decisions to make.
