Houston Rockets looking to acquire new scapegoat

The Houston Rockets have had quite the successful offseason so far, and they are looking to make it even better.

After finishing the 2016-2017 NBA season with a 55-27 record and qualified for the postseason as a No. 3 seed. They would eventually lose to the San Antonio Spurs in six games in the Western Conference Semifinals.

Knowing that they needed to improve if they were going to make any headway in the ultra-competitive Western Conference, the Rockets went out and lured former Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul to a five year deal worth over $21 million dollars.

Then, they showed that they are not afraid to spend some serious money ,when they extended starting guard James Harden’s current deal. Houston gave Harden the biggest contract extension in NBA history keeping him in a Rockets uniform through the 2022-23 season. The deal could be worth $228 million dollars.

With their backcourt fortified, the Rockets then turned their attention to making one more very important roster move. They need to find a new scapegoat.

The Daly Dose was able to speak with Rockets general manager Daryl Morey and he explained his plan.

“We really like what we were able to do in signing Chris and extending James, but the fact is that if this all goes sideways, we are going to need someone to blame. A player like Carmelo Anthony would really fit that need.” Morey told the Dose. “He is a big enough name, that it looks like we are trying to create the newest superteam, but let’s face it, he also has a shaky reputation. We could bring him in, and if everything goes bas, we can just pin the entire thing on him being such a ballhog. That seems like that might be the kind of perfect fit that we need.”

Morey also stated that this type of deal is hardly new. “Look at the San Antonio Spurs. They have LaMarcus Aldridge. And n Cleveland, they have Kyle Korver, Kevin Love, pretty much anyone not named LeBron James, really. This is hardly a new strategy.”
