The Houston Rockets have been doing what they can to shed salary in hopes of signing free agent to be Dwight Howard, but to do so the Rockets would like to move forward Thomas Robinson.
The good news? They have a taker. The bad news? It might not be enough.
According to ESPN’s Marc Stein, the Rockets have been offered a first round pick for Robinson, though, there is no indication as to who is offering the pick or where the selection would be.
Some draft scuttle: Rockets have been offered chance to shed contract of PF Thomas Robinson for first-round pick in next Thursday’s draft
The Rockets acquired Robinson from the Sacramento Kings, who selected the former Kansas product with the fifth overall selection in the 2012 NBA Draft.
Robinson’s trade to Houston was essentially a last ditch middle finger to Sacramento as the outgoing ownership saved nearly three million dollars in the trade. Now the talented power forward could be on the move again if the Rockets feel they have a legitimate chance at signing Dwight Howard.
