The Houston Rockets are reportedly closing in on a deal that will rid them of Thomas Robinson in an effort to make room to offer Dwight Howard a max deal in free agency. It is unknown what team the Rockets are in talks with, however, the Cavaliers and Bulls are reported to have shown interest.
According to the Houston Chronicle:
The Rockets are in advanced talks on a cap-clearing trade of forward Thomas Robinson, with a deal potentially “imminent,” a person with knowledge of their plans said on Tuesday.
The Cleveland Cavaliers and Chicago Bulls have shown interest in Robinson, according to another individual with knowledge of the Rockets efforts to move Robinson’s $3.5 million salary next season. The Bulls may be interested in Robinson as part of a larger deal, the individual said.
San Antonio had been interested in Robinson but the teams are not in talks about a deal.
