USA Today’s Sam Amick reported “in Rockets circles” news saying that he thinks the Rockets have a real chance at signing LeBron.

The choice for LeBron to sign with the Rockets would be the obvious decision, especially since the team won 55 games last season under Mike D’Antoni and adding Chris Paul this season to make it even better.
Another way to tell if the Rockets have a chance is if LeBron gets a beatdown against the Golden State Warriors this season, but if he doesn’t win against the Warriors then Houston could easily sign LeBron.
Also, Spotrac is showing that the Houston Rockets currently hold the “second-highest payroll” in the NBA and with CP3’s $39 million cap hold gives the team some wiggle room as long as he reconstructs reduces his salary for LeBron to come aboard.
Of course it doesn’t end with Paul’s contract because the GM still has to find more money somewhere for like trading a player to free up some space. First off, they could trade Ryan Anderson who will earn $41.7 million over the next two years or Eric Gordon who is set to earn more than $27.5 million over the next two years too.
