Houston Rockets Wants LeBron James

Will LeBron James entertain the idea of building another big three in Houston, teaming up with Dwight Howard and James Harden?

According to League sources the Houston back-office is putting up something to make a hard push to get LeBron James in free agency on July 1, that is if LeBron opts out. However, if they failed to land James their second choice is Carmelo Anthony or Chris Bosh.

Someone close to James said that LeBron is thinking about his future and is willing to leave Miami if there's a better team that can accommodate him.

According to Howard Beck of Bleacher Report, the Rockets can trade Jeremy Lin and Omer Asik. Both of them have about $15 million in actual salary next season. Trade Donatas Motiejunas and Isaiah Canaan without returning salary. Waive some players that have non-guaranteed deals. Re-sign Chandler Parsons as a restricted free agent after LeBron signs.
