Houston Rockets Trade Rumors: Rockets Intend To Be Active In Trade Talks As Deadline Nears

The Rockets have one of the more adventurous GM's in the game in Daryl Morey (adventurous meaning that he isn't afraid to make, or pursue trades for anyone on his roster). The team has a lot of excess at certain parts of the roster, and holes at others. The trade deadline is coming closer, so one must assume that the Rockets are going to try their hardest to make a trade at some point.

Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Rockets will be aggressive in pursuing a trade as the calendar progresses.

With the trade deadline a week away, there is still every indication that the Rockets will be very active in talks. They still seem very willing to take on contracts, still hoping their expiring contracts and young talent can bring help.

They won't do something just to bolster this season, but that was never the plan, anyway. Daryl Morey has always been trying to find long-term help. And it could come at any position.

The Rockets are sitting at 26-31, out of the playoff picture in the West. They probably can't make a trade that would make them legitimate contenders in the Western Conference, but that might be a good sign that they should start the re-building process. Well, maybe not re-building, but re-tooling. They have some very good pieces, they just need to consolidate the talent around them.
