One NBA writer has named Alex Caruso, Delon Wright and OG Anunoby as the Houston Rockets’ top trade targets. Zach Buckley of Bleacher Report believes the Rockets should try to trade for Caruso, Wright and Anunoby.

“A targeted, mid-cost upgrade like Caruso or Wright seems preferable if Houston is still aiming to add,” Buckley wrote in his latest NBA trade column. “Both could help shoulder the burdens of defending and dime-dropping while also sharing their veteran know-how with Houston’s up-and-comers.

“Having said that, the Rockets have the draft picks needed to broker a blockbuster should this roster prove it’s ready to launch. Deploy Anunoby with newcomers Dillon Brooks and Amen Thompson, and Houston’s wings might be impenetrable. The fact the Rockets don’t have many established, high-end scorers might also mean they could scratch Anunoby’s itch for more offensive involvement.”
