Will the Houston Rockets be stronger next season?

The Houston Rockets tried hard to land Carmelo Anthony this summer. And when they failed to do so, they turned their interest towards Chris Bosh.

Houston acted quickly and brought in Trevor Ariza to replace Parsons and now, the Rockets...

Dwight Howard continues to burn all his bridges

You would think by now, Dwight Howard would know not to talk about the past, his past teammates or anything to the media other than the task at hand. After spending nearly two years saying the wrong things over and over again, Howard just cannot seem to get out of his own way. With Jameer Nelson on the market and available to sign, and Houston needing a point guard for cheap to...

Rockets Rumors: Houston may bring Francisco Garcia back

The Houston Rockets swung and missed this year in free agency, going after LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Bosh and not signing any of them. They did, however, sign Trevor Ariza to provide a much needed defensive presence, and they maintain their high hopes of contending in the Western Conference.

Harden praises himself, Howard, calls other Rockets 'role players'

It should come as no surprise that the Houston Rockets struck out big time (so far) in this year’s NBA Free Agency. The Rockets not only failed to land targeted players such as Chris Bosh and Carmelo Anthony, but also managed to let budding prospect, Chandler Parsons, sign and offer sheet with the Dallas Mavericks, without matching the three-year, $46 million offer. Sure, the Rockets...
