Rockets Trade Rumors: Houston Reportedly Interested In Deals Both Big And Small

In discussing NBA trade rumors and the NBA trade deadline in a Yahoo! Sports video segment, writer Adrian Wojnarowski says the Houston Rockets are “one of the more aggressive teams out there,” pointing toward their desire to make trades and their enviable cache of assets, including Yao Ming’s expiring contract.

“They’re looking for good, veteran players,” Wojnarowski says, adding that future Hall-of-Fame point guard Steve Nash will surely be a target of Houston’s if the Phoenix Suns make him availble. Carmelo Anthony is still in the mix, but Wojnarowski says Houston is unlikely to trade for the All-Star forward unless he commits to signing a contract extension, which is highly unlikely.

But the Rockets aren’t solely looking to make splashy deals, Wojnarowski says, adding they could move shooting guard Courtney Lee to the Chicago Bulls. Lee is “a favorite” of Chicago head coach Tom Thibodeau.

“I think they’ll be real active at the deadline,” Wojnarowski concludes, echoing numerous reports out of Houston in recent days. With 10 days remaining until the trade deadline, the situation can only get more interesting from here. Stay tuned to this StoryStream for future updates.
