Houston Rockets Trade Rumors: Josh Smith, Tyreke Evans In The Mix

It's not just Dwight Howard the Rockets are after, even though he's clearly the No. 1 target of all the draft moves being made leading up to Thursday. Reports say Houston is willing to explore other options if the Orlando Magic don't budge in trade offers for Howard.

Other players the Rockets are considering pursuing are Josh Smith of the Hawks and Tyreke Evans in Sacramento. A deal for Evans would include Kyle Lowry, just as about any deal likely would, and it's up to the Kings whether or not they want to make the move.

The reports on acquiring Evans were refuted by Sam Amick of Sports Illustrated.

What's clear is that the Rockets are being aggressive this week.
