NBA Draft 2011: Rockets Tentatively Agree To Trade Picks With Bucks, Says Report

The Houston Rockets will trade the 14th and 23rd overall picks in Thursday's NBA Draft to the Milwaukee Bucks for the 10th pick, according to Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress, if the player the Bucks want is no longer available when the 10th pick is due to be made. Givony says he believes the player Milwaukee has its eye on is Jonas Valanciunas, so Rockets fans watching the draft ought to pay attention when his name is called.

The 14th pick belongs squarely to Houston, while it obtained the 23rd pick from the Phoenix Suns at February's trading deadline when it dealt Aaron Brooks for Goran Dragic. The Suns, in turn, had acquired that pick from the Orlando Magic in a December trade featuring Vince Carter and Jason Richardson. Apparently, those two picks together are worth the 10th pick to both the Rockets and Bucks. Only time will tell if the Bucks will indeed make that trade, or whom Houston will use that pick on if they do.

The Draft starts Thursday at 6 PM Central. ESPN has the telecast. Stay tuned to this StoryStream for more Rockets Draft and trade news, and visit The Dream Shake for all things Rockets.
