Rockets Trade Rumors: Gerald Wallace In Play Still, Aaron Brooks Unlikely To Be Traded For Marcus Camby

We’re in the last hour, and the rumors are starting to come fast and furious.

The big news is that Gerald Wallace, who was once thought to be all but a Portland Trailblazer, is still sitting around in Charlotte. The Rockets, according to CBS’ Ken Berger, are “chomping at the bit” to make a deal, and have offered a package based around Shane Battier. However, Berger considers it likely that Wallace will remain with the Bobcats following a case of cold feet by Michael Jordan.

According to ESPN’s Marc Stein, the Rockets engaged the Trail Blazers in a conversation based around center Marcus Camby. Aaron Brooks would’ve gone to Portland in the proposed trade, but it sounds like the train has already left the station on this one. The lengths that Daryl Morey is willing to go to get his center are nearly frightening, as Camby has threatened to retire if he’s traded.
