“It has to be the defending champion Los Angeles Lakers. And it’s more about getting their house in order,” Marks said on SportsCenter when asked what teams will be the most active in NBA free agency. “What I mean is you’ve the contract of Anthony Davis to work out. You’ve three free agents with players options particularly Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Rajon Rondo. And I think what the Lakers are going to have to do is make a decision between players like Rondo and Markieff Morris versus going out and using their mid-level exception.”

So what are the Rockets looking for, and is Houston really a more attractive destination than other teams because of the free-flowing, all-systems-go basketball Coach Mike D’Antoni employs? “We’re having multiple conversations,” said Morey. “We have a couple players at the top of the list. Until they clear waivers, it’s not something we can talk about, but we think it’s gonna be good for us.” Markieff Morris ticks the obvious box here, for multiple reasons. The guy can ball. A 6-foot-10 forward with range could be used in any Rockets lineup. If D’Antoni wants to get really weird with it and go small ball, Morris as a stretch 5 could be deadly. Houston likes him, league sources say.
