Rockets Trade Rumors: Daryl Morey Will Be 'Extremely Active' At The Deadline

Daryl Morey has never been afraid to make a move. As the trade deadline approaches, Morey will be actively looking to make a deal, according to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle. There's a lot to digest in here, so let's take it step-by-step.

The Rockets want a center, and they'll trade for Carmelo Anthony if it means that they can get Nuggets' center Nene out of the deal as well. And a deal centered around just Nene has a much better chance of happening.

The Nuggets, however, have seemed more receptive to the Rockets' offers for Nene than they had been for Anthony. Those talks also have ground to a halt, one person familiar with Denver's efforts said, but that if they do deal Anthony, they would likely look to also move Nene.

The other big piece of news in the article is that Aaron Brooks probably will be staying with the Rockets through the rest of the year.

The Rockets have not seemed inclined to move Aaron Brooks, despite his expiring contract and his one-game suspension this week for conduct detrimental to the team. Coach Rick Adelman said the Rockets are not interested in trading Brooks. New York, Sacramento, Minnesota, Portland and Memphis have shown interest in Brooks, but that did not lead to serious talks.

It is a little surprising that the Rockets have no interest in moving Brooks, considering his drop in production, pending free agency and the Rockets seeming to not want to resign him. You would think that they would want to re-coup any value for him, but I guess they haven't gotten an attractive offer yet.
