The Houston Rockets are now in the mix along with a few other teams to land All Star Jimmy Butler.

After reports surfaced that the disgruntled Butler requested a trade from the Minnesota Timberwolves, rumors began to fly with speculation where the four-time NBA All-Star might end up. Butler reportedly prefers to go to the Miami Heat.

Now a report from Mark Berman of FOX 26 in Houston says the Rockets have emerged as possible landing spot as well.

The Rockets lost two wing players during the offseason in Trevor Ariza and Luc Mbah a Moute. Butler would be an obvious upgrade. The question would be what Houston would have to part with to facilitate a trade. If there’s one thing we have learned over the years, it’s not to doubt Daryl Morey.
