As we continue to go round and round while awaiting the final word on a Jimmy Butler trade out of Minnesota, one team is putting on the full-court press. While the Houston Rockets were considered to be in the mix from the very early stages, things are ramping up.
While Mark Berman of Fox 26 revealed the Rockets are “making a strong effort” land to land Butler, there are details of a potential deal emerging.
After Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson originally reported the Rockets were preparing to make an offer for Butler centered around Eric Gordon and fillers, he expanded on that Thursday. Along with the expectation of Gordon being involved, Robinson cites that a first-round pick and P.J. Tucker are also being discussed.
