According to reports, the Houston Rockets are shopping point guard Patrick Beverley.

Soon after news broke that the Houston Rockets had traded forward Donatas Motiejunas to the Detroit Pistons, whispers came rolling in that the Rockets are now gauging the value of Patrick Beverley.

Approaching the trade deadline, the common assumption was that the Rockets would trade point guard Ty Lawson. It is likely that the Rockets are having a difficult time finding any suitors for Ty Lawson due to his disappointing season.

In Patrick Beverley, teams would receive a great on-ball defender as well as a decent three-point shooter.

With news of Motiejunas’ trade, and now word of a possible Beverley trade, it seems like the only Rocket who is safe is James Harden.

The Rockets have been making calls in the last few hours checking to see the value of PG Patrick Beverley, sources said
