The Houston Rockets reached a deal with the Sacramento Kings to acquire veteran guard Jason Terry. The Rockets sent guard/forward Alonzo Gee to the Kings for Terry and a pair of second round picks.
The Rockets had been in the market for another guard that could handle the ball after trading point guard Jeremy Lin to the Los Angeles Lakers in order to clear cap space. They have recently been tied to veteran guard Ramon Sessions but according to Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders, it looks like the Terry move will take the Rockets out of the mix.
The Rockets have been exploring options on a veteran guard and were also in the mix for Ramon Sessions. The Rockets tried to construct a similar non-guaranteed package of assets to send to Milwaukee in a sign and trade deal for Sessions, but found the Bucks to be a little unwilling to play ball.
Sessions is still a solid veteran and could certainly help a team. The Rockets could still theoretically deal for Sessions and use either he or Terry off of the ball during stretches of time.
Sessions averaged 12.3 points, 4.1 assists and 2.4 rebounds per game while shooting 42.9% from the field, 28.2% from beyond the arc and 80.7% from the free throw line for both the Bucks and Hornets last season. Sessions, who has also played for the Lakers, Minnesota Timberwolves and Cleveland Cavaliers, has put up 11.7 points, 4.7 assists and 3.0 rebounds while shooting 43.9% from the field, 31.1% from three and 80.0% from the charity stripe in his seven-year career.
