Rockets Trade Rumors: Courtney Lee Worried About NBA Trade Deadline

The Houston Rockets’ well-documented desire to make a trade before the NBA trading deadline on Feb. 24 “doesn’t faze” third-year shooting guard Courtney Lee, who’s been traded after each of his first two seasons. He is, however, “concerned” about potentially moving again. Lee, whom the Chicago Bulls are reportedly interested in acquiring, told Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle, “I’m going to be a professional and work hard. If that leads me to be somewhere else, I’ll do the same.”

The 25-year-old Lee has proven a valuable cog to the Rockets this year, averaging 7.4 points and 2.4 rebounds in 56 appearances, all off the bench. He may interest contending teams looking to improve their guard depth. As a rookie in 2009, he started for the Orlando Magic team which eventually made it to the NBA Finals, providing above-average defense on the wing and making himself open for corner three-pointers.
