According Calvin Watkins at ESPN, the rumor with the most legitimacy is one involving PF Terrence Jones. Though the management in Houston would rather not part ways with the young talent, they are considering available options with several different teams. Markieff Morris, a 5th-year PF currently playing for the Phoenix Suns, should prove to be an interesting prospect.
He’s been a great player in recent years (15.3 points per game and 6.2 rebounds per game last season) but has seen his productivity drop this season after voicing his dissatisfaction with the Phoenix management.
