Houston Rockets are expected to be involved in several trade discussions ahead of the NBA trade deadline. According to Kelly Iko of the Athletic, several NBA teams are interested in guard Ben McLemore.

The Rockets are 14th in the Western Conference at 11-24, and they are expected to retool their roster, after trading away James Harden in January.

Several reports suggest that P.J. Tucker, Eric Gordon and Victor Oladipo could also change teams before the trade deadline as several contenders are looking to upgrade their roster.

Iko does not report specific destinations for McLemore, who has found his niche in Houston, after a mediocre start in his NBA career.

During this season, his numbers and playtime regressed from last year, especially after James Harden’s blockbuster trade. He’s averaging 6.4 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.0 assists shooting 30 percent from deep.
