Woj: Rockets Hope to Convince Jimmy Butler to Push Sixers to do Sign-and-Trade
Count on the Houston Rockets to make a effort to land Jimmy Butler when NBA free agency opens this Sunday at 6 p.m.
According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Rockets are ready to make a bold move to help add to their duo of James Harden and Chris Paul by making a strong play for Butler.
"Houston's hopes are this, once free agency starts, that they can convince Jimmy Butler to push the Sixers to do a sign-and-trade with Houston," Woj said on Sportscenter.
The Rockets don't currently have the cap space to sign Butler, so a trade would have to happen and would most likely include Eric Gordan and Clint Capella.
So Sixers fans, would you be willing to move on from Butler for a deal that included Butler for Gordon, Capella and say P.J. Tucker?
The Sixers could offer Butler the full five-year, $190 million deal.
