Report: Rockets making all players available in trade talks

Chris Paul Rockets

The Houston Rockets are still trying to build a team that can contend with the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference, and they are willing to make some major changes this offseason to accomplish that goal.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Rockets general manager Daryl Morey is showing an “aggressive desire” to improve the team’s roster this summer and has informed rival executives that all players are available in trade talks.

As Wojnarowski notes, Morey has not even indicated that James Harden is off-limits, though it seems highly unlikely that he would be traded. Chris Paul signed a four-year, $160 million max contract with the Rockets last offseason, but Morey is apparently open to moving him.

One interesting storyline that has emerged out of Houston since the season ended is that there may be some tension between Harden and Paul. While head coach Mike D’Antoni did his best to downplay that, you have to wonder if it’s a factor in Morey’s willingness to make major roster changes.
