The Houston Rockets reportedly could be open to moving one of their best players. Kevin O'Connor of The Ringer reported Monday that teams will be inquiring about Rockets center Christian Wood and that Houston is willing to listen. "There is an expectation around the NBA that Christian Wood, who’s in the second season of a three-year contract, will receive significant trade interest and that Houston will entertain offers," O'Connor wrote.
In case you missed it, the New York Knicks are already rumored to have placed Kemba Walker on the trade block. This follows head coach Tom Thibodeau’s shocking decision to kick the four-time All-Star out of his rotation completely. Walker’s market value is reportedly at an all-time low right now, but as it appears, the Knicks could be looking at a former first overall pick in a potential swap.
The Houston Rockets are potentially taking a step toward John Wall's return to the court. Houston Chronicle writer Jonathan Feigen reported Monday that Rockets head coach Stephen Silas said the team is working Wall back into game shape. Feigen noted that the process is expected to take "a couple weeks" while conversations between Wall and Houston continue.
