Report: Rockets Plotting to Land LaMarcus Aldridge and Kevin Love

Houston is clearly trying to set this summer's free agency on fire.

Published June 25, 2015

The Houston Rockets landed Dwight Howard in free agency during the summer of 2013.

Last summer they nearly signed Chris Bosh before he decided to remain with the Miami Heat.

Leading into this summer's free-agency market, there's already an ESPN report that the Rockets are looking for a way to add both LaMarcus Aldridge and Kevin Love, two of the best power forwards in the NBA today.

This report comes a day after Love opted out of the final year of his contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday.

Aldridge is expected to test the free agency market outside of his Portland Trail Blazers team as well.

Although this could be considered a long shot, imagine a Rockets team that made it to the 2015 Western Conference Finals, returning next season with a starting lineup including Howard, James Harden, Love and Aldridge. That'd be some squad.
