NBA Trade Rumors: Rockets, Lakers And Cavs Talking Three-Team Deal

The Houston Rockets are in trade discussions with the Los Angeles Lakers and Cleveland Cavaliers about a three-team deal that would send Ramon Sessions to the Lakers, Jonny Flynn to Cleveland and a Lakers first-round draft pick to Houston, according to a report by Chris Broussard. Cleveland, however, will not go through with the deal unless it gets a first-round pick for Sessions.

"If the Cavaliers trade Sessions, they are likely to make a deal for Flynn. Cleveland is one of the more popular teams this week, as clubs are calling the Cavs about being a third-team facilitator in trades. The Cavs are also in talks with New Orleans about a move that would send Antawn Jamison and his $15 million expiring contract to the Hornets for Emeka Okafor and Minnesota's first-round pick." - Chris Broussard

For much of the season, the main trade pursuit for the Rockets has been for Lakers forward Pau Gasol, but those trade rumors have been dwindled. With the friction between Houston's leading scorer Kevin Martin and first year head coach Kevin McHale, Martin could be on the trading block if anyone is interested.
