Yesterday’s rumors roundup

Rajon Rondo rumors roundup

Two days ago rumors roundup

Earlier in-season rumors updates: #1#2#3#4


Trade Deadline: Today, 2:00 PM CT. 

Note: My thoughts will be italicized. 

Deadline appears to have passed with the Rockets making just one move.

2:25 PM – Well past deadline. Rockets likely finished but no insider/expert/reporter has confirmed if the Rockets are done quite yet. Could they sneak in another deal? Stay tuned.

1:39 PM - The Rockets have made their first trade. Check out our new post about the move.

11:55 AM – Marc Stein (ESPN) gives us an Asik update.


8:52 AM – Adrian Wojnarowski (Yahoo Sports) says one potential Rockets target is headed to Cleveland.

Well there goes that perfect fit for the Rockets!12:12 AM – Peter Vecsey says that Howard may not be too thrilled if Rajon Rondo were a Rocket.

You could choose whether or not to believe Vecsey but his reasoning does make sense. Would Howard tell Morey not to pull the trigger though if it makes the team better? We may just find out! FROM YESTERDAY 9:20 PM – Alex Kennedy (Basketball Insiders) tells us that Jeremy Lin is likely not headed back to New York.

4:26 PM – Jonathan Feigen (Houston Chronicle) wrote that the Rockets are looking for a “home run deal” which by definition are usually less likely. Feigen also noted that Francisco Garcia and Aaron Brooks have yet to have been asked if they’d accept a trade elsewhere. Both players signed deals this past offseason giving them the right to veto a trade. 4:02 PM – Gery Woelfel is a respected journalist, connected usually with the Milwaukee Bucks but he has sources across the NBA. Here’s his update.

If I had to guess, I’d say the Rockets likely have a (minor) deal in place that they could pull the trigger on, but will wait until all other options are exhausted.

Again, keep it here as we update you on all the latest Rockets trade rumors throughout the day.
