Best Free Agent Target:

Chris Paul/Clint Capela/Trevor Ariza

Overview:

For the Houston Rockets and their fans, they must be disappointed. They came extremely close to beating the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference Finals and having a realistic shot at getting the 2018 title. If Chris Paul would have played in games 6 and 7, things may have been different for Houston. But, on the bright side, they have a very realistic chance of contending with Golden State next year even if they just simply run their team back in 2019. Guys like Paul, Clint Capela, Trevor Ariza among others are free agents this offseason and it would make a lot of sense for Daryl Morey to re-sign everyone again. The only questionable guy would be Capela as he could get a very large offer from a desperate team like Dallas, which would put Morey in a sticky spot salary cap wise. But, the way I see it, the Rockets are best off paying everyone in 2018 and putting it together for a title run in 2019.
