The Houston Rockets will be active on the trade market in order to strengthen their roster ahead of the deadline, general manager Daryl Morey told Sam Amick of The Athletic.
“We’re definitely a buyer,” Morey said. I think we’ve been trying to win the title for a while, and we had a couple years before we got James where we probably didn’t have as much of a chance to win, where we were probably a little more future focused.
“But since James has been here we’ve been buyers at the deadline and hopefully something comes along that we think can help our chances to win the title. We’ve had a few years where we don’t, so we don’t force it, but we’re going to be looking for something to hopefully upgrade the team.”
