The Rockets are coming off a season where they lost to the Golden State Warriors in six games of the Western Conference semi-finals, and since then Houston have both changed up their backcourt and cemented it.
Houston traded Chris Paul to the Oklahoma City Thunder for Russell Westbrook and have now secured Gordon.
Westbrook, Gordon and 2017-18 MVP James Harden are now all locked up through at least the 2022-23 season, though both Westbrook and Harden have player options that year.
