Houston Rockets trade package #3.
It’s been reported that the Rockets are seeking a young player in exchange for Oladipo, which many believe is too steep of an asking price for Oladipo. But according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Rockets have been able to find deals that meet their expectations, which is reassuring for Rockets fans.
Reddish has averaged 11.2 points this season, but the 21-year-old forward is shooting just 36.5 percent from the floor and 26.2 percent from deep, which are both lower than his rookie season, in which he made 38.4 percent of his shots and 33.2 percent from three. In this deal, the Rockets would have to take on the contracts of Tony Snell and Solomon Hill, who combine for $14.34 million, which will expire at the end of the season.
The Hawks would also get a future first-round pick from the Rockets, via the Washington Wizards, which would make the deal even more enticing. The Rockets could afford to get rid of the pick, due to the fact that they possess a litany of draft picks, not to mention the fact that the pick isn’t until 2023.
This deal would give the Rockets the young player they’ve coveted, while also giving Atlanta a two-way fringe star player in Oladipo.
