The Houston Rockets have been extremely busy since the beginning of the NBA offseason. That has not changed now that regular-season games have begun. They are well into their reshaping of the roster and it could continue here. Could a trade with a contender like the Los Angeles Clippers further their efforts?
The Rockets recently made one of the biggest splashes in recent years. They sent James Harden to the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for a package headlined by two-time NBA All-Star Victor Oladipo and a ton of NBA Draft capital.
This is after Russell Westbrook was sent to the Washington Wizards for John Wall during the offseason. There are a few other players in Houston that could be on the move and it begins with Eric Gordon and PJ Tucker.
Both Gordon and Tucker are players who would benefit a contending team right away. This is where the Los Angeles Clippers come in to play. They are looking to have a better finish than they did last season during the restart. The Clippers have a few holes around Kawhi Leonard and Paul George in their lineup and they could be filled with a trade such as this one.
If a championship is what the Los Angeles Clippers want to win, they will have to keep up with their crosstown rival. Here is a potential deal they could lend them some help in their lineup.
