The Houston Rockets have pitched a trade for Ty Lawson to Utah Jazz. The Jazz front office are eyeing a point guard and are considering the offer.
Ty Lawson appeared in Houston from Denver Nuggets but didn’t click with the Rockets. The Rockets were looking to trade him off before the trade deadline after having a dismal season. Lawson’s contact for 2016-2017 is non-guaranteed, according to Real GM.
Surely the big deal involves the Dwight Howard trade, but the second piece the Rockets are trying to move away from is Ty Lawson after dropping to the ninth spot in the Western Conference.
Mike Conley, on the other hand, is set to become a free agent this off-season, but the Memphis Grizzlies are reluctant to deal him before the deadline. Conley was the third overall pick of the Grizzlies from Ohio State in 2007. Memphis also acquired Spaniard Marc Gasol without serious competition with other teams last summer.
Well, coming to Lawson, the Rockets might have found a suitor in Jazz, according to Fansided. Utah has made Trey Burke available, but another guy needs to be added as the salaries don’t match.
Sources say Houston, well aware Utah has been on the hunt for a veteran point guard for the stretch run, is pitching Ty Lawson to the Jazz
