In a span of just a few months, the Houston Rockets drastically renovated their roster by trading both Russell Westbrook and James Harden.
However, that doesn’t mean they’re done wheeling and dealing.
It looks like the team will receive some calls from rival executives for star guard John Wall, and perhaps there’s a remote chance he will be moved if the Rockets receive an offer that moves them.
“I definitely don’t think he (Rockets general manager Rafael Stone) is shopping Wall,” wrote Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle. “… There will be calls on Wall, however. The Rockets will be active in talks and eventually in making deals, but I would consider him down the list of those likely to be moved.”
Wall was acquired in the trade that sent Westbrook to the Washington Wizards. Several weeks later, the Rockets also received Victor Oladipo in the multi-team trade that made Harden a Brooklyn Net.
While Wall has been putting up strong numbers despite coming off a torn Achilles, Oladipo’s play has been spotty.
The Maryland native will become a free agent this summer, and there is already speculation that he wants to sign with the Miami Heat.
Perhaps Wall won’t get moved, but the Rockets reportedly may end up trading Oladipo in order to get something of value in return for him before he hits the free market.
