The Houston Rockets are interested in Carlos Boozer

Can Rockets contend in more competitive Western Conference?

The Rockets inarguably improved their roster this summer, adding Ty Lawson and Marcus Thornton and drafting two players who can potentially crack the rotation. All their youngsters should be even better, too. Donatas Motiejunas, Clint Capela and Terrence Jones still have plenty of room to grow. But is this enough to compete in a Western Conference that should be even tougher than...

Report: Houston looking to trade 18th pick and Terrence Jones

If the Houston Rockets are going to add a third star this summer, they need to start clearing some serious cap space. The most obvious suspect to move is Trevor Ariza, who's set to make $8.1 million next year and is under a team-friendly contract that decreases annually until 2018.But Ariza is a valuable player in Houston's system, which could make GM Daryl Morey hesitate to pull...

Houston should trade up to take Cameron Payne

The Houston Rockets have the 18th overall pick in next week's draft, a slot that doesn't normally yield a high impact first-year player. That's unfortunate, because right now the Rockets badly need someone who can contribute right away. But what if they trade up a few slots and grab someone more NBA ready? One potentially perfect fit is Murray State guard Cameron Payne, and SB Nation...

Terrence Jones says he's prepared to become better 'all-around player'

Terrence Jones had a disappointing year. Numerous injuries kept him out of the lineup, but even when he was healthy in the playoffs, Jones still struggled. He shot 42 percent from the floor and a shade below 16 percent from the three-point line. That's unacceptable for anyone, let alone a power forward who sees most of his offensive action in the paint. But the 23-year-old thinks...
