NBA Trade Rumors: Houston Rockets Talk About Andrew Bogut?

Yes, but no.

Word came out of Milwaukee this morning that the Houston Rockets were talking to the Bucks about Aussie center Andrew Bogut. In their never-ending quest for a big man, Houston seems to be going after anyone who's available. Here's the upshot:

The Rockets also had been pursuing Bogut in what would've been a less complicated, two-deal deal with Milwaukee with many scenarios discussed. But a person involved in the discussions told CBSSports.com early Tuesday that Houston has backed away from the Bogut talks to pursue another deal. A second source said that deal did not involve Pau Gasol of the Lakers, whom the Rockets have been eyeing since their three-team trade sending Gasol to Houston and Chris Paul to the Lakers was rejected by commissioner David Stern, acting as owner of the New Orleans Hornets, in December.

The proposed three-team deal combined with Golden State and had Houston sending Courtney Lee, Samuel Dalembert and picks for Stephen Jackson and Bogut. That still leaves room for Houston to acquire Pau Gasol, obviously, but since the deal is apparently on hold.
