After another trade, are Rockets closer to winning NBA title? | The Jump | ESPN

In the wake of the trade between the Houston Rockets and the Phoenix Suns, in which Ryan Anderson and De’Anthony Melton are heading to the Valley and Brandon Knight and Marquese Chriss to Texas, Brian Windhorst, Chris Haynes and Nick Friedell of The Jump discuss whether the Rockets are any closer to winning an NBA title than they were in 2017/18, when James Harden, Mike D’Antoni & Co. took the Golden State Warriors to seven games in the Western Conference finals but lost, in part due to the injury absence of Chris Paul. Trevor Ariza and Luc Mbah a Moute are notable departures from Daryl Morey’s team in 2018 NBA free agency, while Clint Capela signed an extension.
