Rockets Offseason 2012: Talks Break Down With Brooklyn Over Luis Scola Trade

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the Houston Rockets and Brooklyn Nets were in serious discussions to send Luis Scola to the Eastern Conference, but the talks have since broken down:

Scola signed a five-year deal worth $47 million dollars in the summer of 2010. It seemed to be a sound decision at the time considering Yao Ming's abrupt retirement from the game of basketball. But with the new salary cap rules going into effect in the summer of 2013, teams are looking to shed as much salary as they possibly can.

The talks may have broken down now that the Orlando Magic superstar Dwight Howard officially requested a trade to the Nets on Saturday evening.
