Chad Ford and Marc Stein of ESPN.com are reporting that the Rockets are ‘weighing’ whether to go ahead and trade for Timberwolves point guard Jonny Flynn before the trade deadline is up. Flynn has mostly been utilized off the bench this year, and he’s averaging 5.8 PPG and 3.3 APG. Despite the scoring punch in limited time, he’s had a lot of problems turning the ball over, and he’s one of the worst rebounders in the league.
If the Rockets were to trade for Flynn, it’s likely that Aaron Brooks would be moved elsewhere as he would be imminently expendable if Rockets brass liked Flynn enough to deal for him. More details on this one as they surface.
EDIT: Ken Berger of CBSSports.com reports that either Brooks or Jared Jeffries is involved, and the two teams are also talking about draft picks. If Brooks is involved, it's likely that the picks will be coming to Houston. If it's Jeffries, then it'll likely be picks going the other way.
