NBA Trade Rumors: Potential deals the Rockets could make with Dwight Howard

To everything there is a season, and it's time for another turn, turn, turn for both the Rockets and Dwight Howard. The smell of change is in the air... or it could be the hot stench of the rotting corpse of this Houston Rockets team, but regardless of where the funk is emanating from, one thing is for certain: this version of the Rockets is dead, finished, done-zo. And it leaves behind almost as much disappointment and almost as many what-ifs as the McGrady-Yao version from last decade. How we got here It was announced yesterday that the Rockets will begin pursuing a trade for superstar...

Dwight Howard is reportedly on the trading block

The Woj has spoken. After a disastrous ending to the first half of the season, Daryl Morey could be scrapping what he hoped was a championship roster, shopping Dwight Howard around the league, according to Adrian Wojnarowski. Dwight has played well since returning from suspension — and really well before he was out — but that is immaterial at this point. The team is floundering, now under .500 and ninth in the West. Despite great individual performances from James Harden and Howard, nothing the pair has done has led to increased chemistry and effort from the team. There's also the...

Rockets intend to re-sign Dwight Howard in the offseason and also chase Kevin Durant

Recent rumors not only have Dwight Howard and the Rockets interested in a re-sign, but also some optimism in the upcoming Kevin Durant sweepstakes as well. Despite various reports all season long that Dwight Howard wants out of Houston and that the Rockets could very well move him before the February 18th deadline, including one just yesterday morning from NBA.com's (and former Houston Chronicle writer) Fran Blinebury, the Rockets actually have no intention of moving the big man, according to ESPN's Calvin Watkins and Mark Stein. In fact, not only do the Rockets not plan on moving D-12,...

NBA Comes Down Hard On Howard & Bickerstaff

They jump in following an ethos uttered for millennia, "get your bro's back." Or something. The Houston Rockets and the NBA have both adopted the ethos in the last week and it's costing Dwight Howard a one-game suspension and fined J.B. Bickerstaff $10,000 American dollars from what we assume, but has never been reported, is a salary commensurate with his title of interim head coach. Dwight Howard's...

Rockets petition the league to rescind Dwight Howard's technicals

Howard's been mistreated over the past week, and it's good to see he has some backup. First J.B. Bickerstaff, and now the Rockets organization. It's been a rough week for the Houston Rockets as a whole, who have now dropped three straight games to fall back to .500, but it's been an even more difficult week for Dwight Howard. Howard picked up four technical fouls in the last two games, including an ejection in the fourth quarter of Saturday's loss to the Washington Wizards, his second ejection of the season. He now leads the league with 12 technical fouls. The Rockets, however, have taken...

The Wizards' 123-122 victory over the Rockets on Saturday was a huge boost as they begin a tough three-game stretch that includes the Thunder and Warriors.

Howard already had a technical foul from the first half when he complained about getting fouled so he was ejected. Nene, who only received one technical foul expected to continue playing.
