If shedding salary is the goal I would not mind picking up Aaron Brooks, and Carlos Delfino on the cheap.The Rockets have told agents for Francisco Garcia, Carlos Delfino and Aaron Brooks that they will not pickup contract options this month. That exception and veteran’s minimums could be used to shift to a much more experienced roster if the Rockets land a top free agent, a plan they apparently will make a significant part of their presentation. The Rockets have paid the luxury tax just once in the 15 seasons with the system, but according to the individual with knowledge of the plan, they also will emphasize that they would be willing to pay the tax to keep a winning team together.

I would also look at ways to acquire Donatas Motiejunas or Thomas Robinson. I truly think the way we get better is by taking advantage of teams looking to make major moves and snagging pieces on the fly.
The Clippers are also looking at doing some upgrading, which made me think a package like DeMar DeRozan for Caron Butler and Eric Bledsoe could be interesting
