The Houston Rockets have Dwight Howard’s name on the trade market and according to the NY Daily News, they’ve already discussed a trade with the Boston Celtics.
There is a strong chance that Howard will become a free agent this summer. The Celtics are also planning on making a big move before the trade deadline.
Meanwhile, the Celtics have engaged the Houston Rockets in talks about a possible deal for Dwight Howard, the Daily News has learned. Howard can opt out of his contract this summer, and considering his back and knee issues, it doesn’t make much sense for Boston GM Danny Ainge to use the assets on a player with declining skills and a battered body.
Boston, which either owns or controls the Brooklyn Nets’ next three first-round picks, are positioned to make a major move either before the trade deadline or this summer around the draft. Another division rival, Toronto, owns the Knicks’ pick.
