The Rockets are tired of taking the back seat. Since they traded for Chris Paul, they are looming for more stars.
The Houston Rockets are searching in the deep end of the ocean for more and more sharks. According to Tim MacMahon of ESPN, the Rockets are certain that they can get Paul George OR LeBron James.

Adding PG13 will help the Rockets really compete against the Warriors. However, adding King James to the mix will take the Warriors seven games and probably dethrone.
Both players are game changers, averaging about 24 plus points per game. Both are two-dimensional megastars, from facilitating on the court to grabbing rebounds to being able to impact tempo at will. Depth will still be a problem even if sixth man of the year Eric Gordon stays on the roster.
After trading away Lou Williams and Sam Dekker, depth may be an issue. At the risk of potentially gathering superstars, who cares about depth?
The reason why the lack of a bench won’t incredibly impact the Rockets is because Harden or Paul can be on the court almost 95 percent of the time. With proper coaching, they can lead this team to success.
Adding PG13 or King James to the mix obviously is dangerous In order to beat the Warriors, King James needs to be on this Rockets team next season. PG13 will only lead them to the Western Conference Finals.
