    Are the Rockets now a more attractive destination for FA

    This off-season they will still have room for a max contract. But do you think they can draw someone in?

    absolutely, the city is an attractive destination for an NBA player, the teams management look determined to win and now the surrounding players would look appealing to a player like Dwight Howard
    All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

    lol... Not happening with Howard...

    But I do see BYNUM!!!

    Asik would be a perfect back up for Bynum, Houston making moves

If Beas can be what he was when he was a rookie (he won't hell be better) then the heat are coming away with another steal.

    Having Harden helps but the harsh reality is that big market teams will always be more attractive no matter how well constructed a small market team is.

    ^^ No because Houston isn't included in his shoe deal.

    Yep but I doubt star players are going to line up to go to Houston just to go play with Harden.. Harden is good but he's not at that level yet. It all depends on how he does as the main option.

    A potential Bynum and Harden duo does look enticing..

    They still have a very strange mix of players on that team. Probably not playoff contenders now, but they will be eventually. Don't see CP3, Dwight or Bynum leaving their spots though.

    this team wont contend for a title they have too much money invested in decent players

    lin, asik, harden

    1 max contract player on top of this wouldn't win a title unless it was lebron or dwight

    Bynum may move, but I doubt he doesn't take the money. A lot depends on how he plays this year. Maybe he doesn't get along with Collins.

    Their glaring need is a PF or SF, but unfortunately there really aren't any free agents this summer.

    Al Jefferson will be a free agent, but I'm not sure it would be smart to commit long term to a core of Lin - Harden - Parsons - Jefferson - Asik. Also I'm not sure Jefferson is a PF anymore at his weight.

    Igoudala will probably sign an extension midseason. Josh Smith is probably the next best SF, but again suffers from position identity issues like Jefferson and is probably not a fulltime 3 anymore. And again Lin - Harden - Smith - White - Asik ....is not a core I'd commit to long term.

    Houston has ALOT of money tied up into a few guys now. They probi only have space for one max deal and I dont think another max player would make them contenders.

    Sig bet with FriedTofuz or whatever his name is (I'm on my phone so it's too tedious to go find his exact name) that if the Nets lose to the Raptors I will delete my account and if the Raptors lose he will delete his (lol Raptors fans are so cute).

    This team is not small-market at all; Houston is the 5th or 6th biggest market in the U.S.
    Magic. Red Sox. Colts. Knights.

    Are you serious?? Parsons is a borderline top 10 sf with no camp as a rookie last season. He is definitely a top 5 defender at the position. Then there's Terrence Jones who honestly has the highest ceiling of anyone on the team.

    Patterson had a sophomore slump but I solid and motie has dirk nowitzki offensive potential.
