Report: Rockets Making Three Key Players Available for Trade

It appears the Rockets are gearing up for a busy summer.

Houston is making Ryan Anderson, Lou Williams and Patrick Beverley available for trade, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.


Because the Rockets reportedly plan to pursue Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, Paul Millsap and Kyle Lowry in free agency.

Anderson signed a 4-year, $80 million deal last summer.

Williams was acquired in a trade with the Lakers in February and has one more year ($7 million) on his deal.

Beverley will make $6 million in 2017-18 and his 2018-19 season is not fully guaranteed.

If the Rockets do sign Lowry, it will be a reunion.

Lowry was traded to the Rockets in February 2009. After playing the next three plus seasons in Houston, he was dealt to Toronto in July 2012.

You can pretty much always count on GM Daryl Morey being aggressive.

"They (the Warriors) are not unbeatable," Morey told ESPN's Zach Lowe. "There have been bigger upsets in sports history. We are going to keep improving our roster.

"We are used to long odds. If Golden State makes the odds longer, we might up our risk profile and get even more aggressive. We have something up our sleeve."
