Rockets Trade Rumors: Gerald Wallace Linked To Houston In New Report

The Houston Rockets are among several teams angling to acquire Charlotte Bobcats forward Gerald Wallace, whom Charlotte has made available, according to this Twitter update from Yahoo! Sports reporter Adrian Wojnarowski. Wallace joins Denver Nuggets center Nene among fringe stars linked to Houston in trade talks.

A 6-foot-7 athletic marvel who can play either forward position, Wallace continues to stuff the stat sheet. The nine-year veteran posts per-game averages of 15.5 points, 8.3 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.2 steals, and 1 block for the Bobcats this season. However, he’s shooting only 43.2 percent from the floor, his worst showing since he shot 36 percent in limited minutes for the Sacramento Kings seven years ago. Another number, 39.1 also looms large in his play: that’s his average minutes played, his sixth straight season over 34.

Wallace earned the only All-Star appearance of his career last season, when he averaged 18.2 points and an remarkable, given his position, 10 rebounds per game. Wojnarowski does not mention whom the Rockets might be willing to trade, but based on previous reports about Houston’s desire to make a trade, it might be easier to name who isn’t available.

The NBA trade deadline is Thursday, Feb. 24, at 3 Eastern. Keep your browser tuned to this StoryStream for all Rockets trade rumors, and follow the general NBA buzz at SBNation.com.
