Published Add your comment

The NBA season may be over, but all eyes are already looking towards next season and the dawning free agency has added some a lot of intrigue already.

Two big names are set to hit the market in Kevin Love and LaMarcus Aldridge and if they do become available, several teams are expected to chase them.

Houston looking for some big names

Aldridge and Love could become the hottest names on the free agency market and everyone is curious about where they will end up.

The LA Lakers, Portland Trail Blazers and Boston Celtics have already been linked with the two stars but could one bigger team be set to swoop in for them?

They may have made the Western Conference Finals but the Houston Rockets are a long way away from an NBA Championship.

The Rockets were outclassed by eventual champions the Golden State Warriors and now it looks like they could be set to rapidly improve.

Houston are rumoured to be eager to sign both Love and Aldridge and should they accomplish that, they will certainly be amongst the favourites for the championship.

Aldridge has reportedly decided not to re-sign with the Trail Blazers whilst Love is expected to opt out of the final year of his deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Rockets signing even one of the two would be a great addition and if they add two to the talents of James Harden, they will become a powerhouse.

The only questions now focus upon who will finally land the two stars and how could the draft change every team's plans.

A big decision

Love is set to be looking for a new team for the second year running after leaving the Minnesota Timberwolves for Cleveland last year.

Despite reaching the NBA Finals last year, Love's time in Cleveland didn't run smoothly as he was constantly surrounded by rumours that he and LeBron James didn't get along.

Everyone has been questioning how long Love would stay in Cleveland and it now appears to have been answered with a very interesting answer.

Cleveland Cavaliers
Central Division
Eastern Conference
Portland Trail Blazers
Northwest Division
Western Conference
Kevin Love
LeBron James
Houston Rockets
