Rockets Trade Rumors: Rockets Continue To Be Interested In Nene, Randolph

The push to the NBA Trade Deadline on Thursday continues for the Rockets, and according to Marc Spears latest column on Yahoo!, the Rockets will be part of the negotiations for both Nene Hilario and Anthony Randolph once the Carmelo Anthony domino falls.

Nene is averaging a career-high 15.1 points and 7.1 rebounds and has attracted interest from the Houston Rockets and Dallas Mavericks. The Miami Heat also have long coveted him, but might have to try to get creative to sign him if he becomes a free agent.

Anthony [Randolph[ has a strong chance of being moved before the deadline, league sources said. The Rockets, Indiana Pacers and Minnesota Timberwolves have all shown interest in him and the Knicks figure to trade him if they need a first-round pick for a deal with the Nuggets’ Anthony.

Aaron Brooks is also rumored to be on the way out, and Spears revealed that a league source has told him that Yao Ming’s expiring contract isn’t expected to be traded.

None of these rumors are particularly surprising, as the Rockets have been at the bargaining table for Randolph and Nene for quite some time. It might be a little more surprising if Brooks is traded given how much he has hurt his trade value recently, but he has also been rumored to be on the block for quite a while.
