Houston Rockets Trade Rumor: Ty Lawson for Utah Jazz Trey Burke

By Joshua Van Horn

The Houston Rockets are engaged in negotiations with the Utah Jazz that would send Rockets point guard Ty Lawson to Utah.

With all the buzz surrounding Houston Rockets Dwight Howard, whispers about where Ty Lawson may land have been overshadowed.

Marc Stein of ESPN reports that the Rockets are trying to send Lawson to the Utah Jazz. One of the names mentioned for who the Rockets may receive in return is third year guard Trey Burke.

Having heard that the Jazz are searching for a veteran point guard, the Rockets figure it’s a suitable time to part ways with Lawson. In order for the deal to work, however, the Jazz will have to include another player so that salaries will match.

Utah, meanwhile, has made Trey Burke available, but at least one more player must be added if talks progress because salaries aren't close

Lawson has had a disappointing season with the Rockets, averaging career lows of 6 points and 3 assists.

While most eyes will be on Dwight Howard, keep your attention on Ty Lawson as the trade deadline is less than a day away.
