Who is deron williams dating
Asik probably wouldn’t be a problem to move, but finding a home for Lin could be trickier, especially given his balloon payment to million next season in real dollars (though his cap figure remains at .3 million).If Morey is able to move Lin for cap relief, the Rockets would seemingly be all-in on Anthony or another prized free agent.The Rockets were also said to be interested in Williams heading into his 2012 free agency.
We know the Rockets have long been fans of the ex-Illinois point guard, including in 2011, when Houston made a strong bid for Williams before the Jazz ultimately dealt him to Brooklyn.
For his part, Williams is even a Texas native, having grown up in suburban Dallas, and would likely jump at the chance to play closer to home.
None of those factors is enough to vault Williams ahead of Anthony or immediate cap space as the Rockets’ offseason priority, of course.
After all, Williams is coming off a season in which he posted his lowest PER (17.6) since his second year in the NBA and his fewest points (14.3) and assists (6.1) per game since his rookie year.
Additionally, Williams is owed million over the next three years, which means that the Rockets would essentially be “capped out” for the remainder of Harden and Howard’s current contracts.
