The Rockets' roster could undergo a major overhaul this offseason.

Houston is “actively exploring the trade market for Clint Capela, Eric Gordon and PJ Tucker,” according to a report from the New York Times’ Marc Stein. It is “operating under the belief that at least one of those three” players will not be on the team next season, the report says.

Rockets general manager Daryl Morey has made “all players and picks available in talks" with other front offices, according to an earlier report from ESPN. It is highly unlikely the team deals star James Harden, that report notes.

NBA trade rumors: Heat have made Dion Waiters, James Johnson ‘available’

NBA trade rumors: Heat have made Dion Waiters, James Johnson ‘available’ James Johnson and Dion Waiters are “considered available on the trade market,” according to a report from the Miami Herald. The team is looking to move at least one contract with multiple years remaining this summer, the report says. Miami president Pat Riley said in April he believes the team can improve this offseason. “I think we have built a base,” Riley said, via the Miami Herald. “We have our draft choices. The possibilities of room are right around the road. Don’t be making any kind of conclusions about next year in that we’re stuck with certain contracts or whatever it is you think we can’t get out of.

There’s a chance Chris Paul could be moved, although his age (34) and contract (three-years, $125 million) will make it difficult for the Rockets to find a trade partner, according to the Times.

The Rockets finished 2018-19 with a 53-29 record but fell to the Warriors in six games in the Western Conference semifinals. Golden State has eliminated Houston from the playoffs in two straight seasons.

"I can promise you, we're going to win some championships with James Harden, because we are not going to sit here,” Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta told reporters last month. “We will go to battle every year. We're going to have a strong offseason, and we're going to do whatever we can to be a better team. We are not going to sit on our hands, I can promise you that."

Rockets near deal with coach Mike D'Antoni on contract extension, report says Houston coach has one season remaining on his existing deal and says he wants to coach three more seasons.

The Houston Rockets are " actively exploring " deals for Clint Capela , Eric Gordon , and P.J. Tucker, according to Marc Stein. Stein adds that a source says the Rockets are operating under the assumption that at least one of those three players will not be with the team next season.

Capela averaged 16.6 points and 12.7 rebounds for the Rockets last season. He signed a five-year, $90 million extension with the team last July.

Gordon has been a valuable scorer and secondary ball handler for Houston while Tucker has become a reliable 3-and-D player.

Meanwhile, coach Mike D’Antoni has ended talks with the Rockets about a contract extension, ESPN reported last week. D’Antoni has one more season remaining on his current deal.
