Can the Rockets land LeBron without gutting their team?

What would have to happen for LeBron to join James Harden and CP3? Kevin Pelton looks how Houston might build a juggernaut.

Short answer: no.  Like mongo was saying last night: CP3 and LBJ ain’t taking a pay cut (NBAPU reps can’t be seen doing the owners any favors) so the real question becomes does the trade include Ryan Anderson or the rest of the team?  My guess is the rest of the team with Anderson being the first big off the bench.

This would seem to be the most likely scenario.  Only question I have is, if it’s true his family has some voice in the choice: how do they feel about Houston?  I feel like it’s a non-issue based on how much he’ll be raking in.  The biggest hurdle will be convincing Cleveland and Gilbert that they’re actually getting something out of a trade as opposed to letting him walk for nothing.
