The Houston Rockets Trying To Move Up In Draft, Possibly Trying To Acquire Dwight Howard
Could Dwight Howard be heading to H town? A few weeks ago, we posted that the Houston Rockets were one of the few teams in the NBA willing to rent out the superstar center without him agreeing to re-sign with the franchise.
ESPN‘s Chad Ford & Marc Stein said last night, that the Houston Rockets — who are currently slated to pick 14th and 16th in Thursday nights NBA draft — are in talks with the Sacramento Kings and Toronto Raptors about trading up for their respective 5th and 8th picks. The story was then updated early this morning — after a rival GM heard about the Rockets plan — after an unnamed GM claimed that the Rockets are trying to acquire the two Top 10 picks to trade for Magic center Dwight Howard.
The original deal Houston was trying to put together centered around; Kevin Martin, Louis Scola, Samuel Dalembert, and Chase Budinger with Orlando wanting former Magic guard Courtney Lee involved with the deal. This is considered a deep draft, but not many franchise-changing players. I will say new GM Rob Hennigan sure does have his hands full with this messy situation. As always we’ll keep you posted on all developments, how do you feel about this potential move going on? Hit the comments & let me know.
