Rockets Trade Rumors: Price For Gerald Wallace Is Expiring Contract And Protected First Rounder

ESPN’s Chad Ford is reporting that the Bobcats are shopping forward Gerald Wallace around the league. The Rockets are one of many teams, along with the Cavaliers, Clippers, Mavericks, and Pacers, who have inquired on Wallace.

The Bobcats are said to be asking for a protected first-round pick and expiring contracts. For the Rockets, they could potentially send the first round pick that the Knicks dealt them in 2012, which is likely to not be a lottery pick now that they have dealt for Carmelo Anthony, along with the contract of Jared Jeffries and some of the trade exception they have from moving Trevor Ariza to New Orleans.

Wallace’s shooting is way down this year for the Bobcats, and he’s 28 as of now. It would be up to Rockets GM Daryl Morey to determine if his shooting is a problem with Wallace or a problem with his role on the Bobcats. If he thinks Wallace is underperforming, this would be a pretty solid deal for the Rockets. If not, he’s probably not worth the trouble.
