NBA Trade Rumors: Houston Rockets To Trade Ty Lawson To Milwaukee Bucks For OJ Mayo And Vasquez

The Rockets have already made a decision to land shooting guard O.J. Mayo and point guard Greivis Vasquez by trading Ty Lawson to the Milwaukee Bucks.

Ty Lawson is not at his best form. He has registered a sluggish start this season. Lawson averaged 15.2 points off a 43.6% FG percentage and 9.6 assists only one season ago but failed to live up to expectations this season. The Rockets made a move for Ty Lawson in pursuit of the top slot of the Western Conference.

But point guard Lawson has been a shadow of his past, and the Rockets have struggled in the first month of the League, sparking rumors that the Rockets will be moving him for a man in-form to boost their standings. The Rockets have already made a decision to land shooting guard O.J. Mayo and point guard Greivis Vasquez by trading Lawson to the Milwaukee Bucks.

According to Steve Kyler of Basketball Insider, the Rockets have already shopped Lawson in the trade market. Lawson is no longer a starter for the team, rather coming off the bench and posting 6.7 points off 34.0% FG percentage and only 4.2 assists a game this season.

“The Rockets have been sniffing around the league for deals and there is a belief among other teams that Lawson could be had in trade, and had cheaply. Lawson is owed $12.4 million this season with the final $13.21 million of his deal being fully non-guaranteed,”​ Kyler wrote.

Moreover, with James Harden featuring on court, there is always an ego clash with Ty Lawson. The combination never worked, actually.
