The Rockets are not finished with improving their team, as they are currently pursuing Andre Iguodala.
According to Sam Amick of The Athletic, the Rockets are primarily focused on landing Andre Iguodala in a trade with the Memphis Grizzlies.
Memphis acquired Iguodala and a protected first-round pick in a trade with the Golden State Warriors this offseason so Golden State could make room for guard D’Angelo Russell in a sign-and-trade with the Brooklyn Nets.
It is widely assumed that the rebuilding Grizzlies will trade the 35-year-old Iguodala to a contender, but that may not happen until after the 2019-20 season begins.
Per Marc Stein of the New York Times, there is “some belief” within the league that Memphis will keep Iguodala on the roster heading into the season unless it gets an offer that includes a future first-round pick.
Houston’s top priority right now is to trade for Andre Iguodala, per Woj.

According to Amick, the Rockets have some competition when it comes to landing Iguodala, as the Los Angeles Clippers reportedly have interest in adding him to a core that now includes Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, Lou Williams, Patrick Beverley and Montrezl Harrell.
The Rockets are gearing up for a fight in the Western Conference.
