The Houston Rockets have one of the most ridiculous payrolls in basketball this year. Both Chris Paul and James Harden are quite expensive, but let’s not forget the contract of Carmelo Anthony. Nonetheless, this showed before the season that Houston is all-in on winning as soon as possible. Never mind the Carmelo situation, but the Rockets may need a bit more help if they want to compete for a championship.
In fact, they are looking for help on the wing as we speak. Parker is one of those intriguing players, because he is caught between the two forward positions. He is essentially a similar player to Anthony, but younger and has a little more juice.
Currently, they have guys like Danuel House Jr., PJ Tucket and James Ennis III at the small forward position. None of them are playing anywhere close to excellent ball this year, therefore Parker would provide a boost as he’s enjoyed a decent season.
If the Rockets saw Parker as a potential fit at the three, Parker would be a solid chance taken. After all, what’s another few million dollars?
