The Houston Rockets already have their sights on next season after coming up short in the Western Conference Finals this year.
Even though they won over 60 games in the regular season and came up one game short of advancing to the NBA Finals, Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta believes his team is capable of doing it next year.
Fertitta said that there isn't much to improve with the team but they must sign Chris Paul and Clint Capela.

We want to keep Clint..I'll be very disappointed if next year at this time, on this day, we're not here in the 7th game again.I just hope we're not playing Golden State,but we probably will be." #Rockets pic.twitter.com/yfM0VcAE07— Mark Berman (@MarkBermanFox26) May 29, 2018
Paul and Capela both will be free agents in the offseason and will be highly sought after due to their impressive showing this season.
Head coach Mike D'Antoni feels there are things to improve upon but is still confident in his group of guys.

Fertitta said that once they handle business with Paul and Capela, then they will see who they can work out a deal with in free agency.
