The Houston Rockets, as you know by now, are in the midst of the worst losing streak in franchise history at 20 losses in a row. Usually, when a team is having this bad of a season, it is looking to wipe the slate clean and start over.
In most of these cases, the trade deadline would have that team as a seller instead of looking to add talent. When it comes to the Rockets, most trade rumors have been the complete opposite, as the Rockets look to reload instead of rebuilding.
Why passing on Aaron Gordon is the best move by the Houston Rockets
The Rockets recently completed a trade sending P.J. Tucker to the Milwaukee Bucks for a pick swap and a future first-round draft pick, but picks are not what the Rockets are primarily looking for in the latest rumors. Two major reports have come out in the last several days detailing what the Rockets would be looking to send out in a possible trade for Aaron Gordon.
It is time to look at these trade rumors and make sense for this current version of the Rockets. Are the Rockets giving up too much in these rumors, and should they be targeting other players instead before the March 25th deadline?
