So look for Rockets to re-enter trade game for longtime Houston target Rajon Rondo as well as try to work their way into mix for Kevin Love
— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) July 14, 2014
The Rockets declined Chandler Parsons‘ offer sheet, leaving them with much more flexibility for a third “star” piece.
The problem, however, would be the assets the Rockets currently have. They will have a trade exception, as well as non-guaranteed contracts to make a trade, but they may not have the ammo to make the Boston Celtics or the Minnesota Timberwolves want to pull the trigger.
A Love trade seems extremely unlikely, though there is a possibility the Rockets could swing a deal for Rondo. He should cost the Rockets less than Love, but it would mean Morey would have to pull off another incredible trade to make hit happen.
Never doubt Daryl!
