The Rockets are reportedly prepared to pursue Dwight Howard or Andrew Bynum in free agency.

Houston has sniffed around Howard previously, so that's not a total shocker, but it would still be a surprise to see him leave the Lakers. The more interesting scenario is the Rockets potential pursuit of Bynum, who the Sixers could be hesitant to extend on a long-term deal depending on what happens with his knees the rest of the season. The Rockets are currently positioned to be prominent players in free agency.
