It’s become an annual tradition for the Houston Rockets to be involved in making a trade at the deadline as long as Daryl Morey is in charge, and this year is no different as the latest rumors centers on the Rockets increasingly strong push to acquire Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo.

 

 

Plenty of names have been mentioned as possible pieces to give back to the Celtics, including Omer Asik, Jeremy Lin, Donatas Motiejunas, Terrence Jones, and Chandler Parsons. The Rockets, however, are not willing to part ways with Parsons, according to Marc Stein, even though Boston has been actively pushing for him to be included in a possible deal.

 

 

 

It was also reported earlier in the week that Celtics general manager Danny Ainge has demanded 2 first-round picks in any deal that would involve Rondo, and the Toronto Raptors, and New York Knicks have also expressed interest as the trade deadline is set to expire in less than 24 hours.
