The Houston Rockets are wheeling and dealing once again!

Today, the Rockets dealt center Samuel Dalembert and the 14th pick in Thursday’s draft to the Bucks for  Shaun Livingston, Jon Brockman, Jon Leurer, and the 12th overall pick.

It has been rumored the past few days that Dalembert could be on the trading block. He’s known for his rim defense and rebounding, and is one of the better centers in the league.

This looks to be a fairly quiet deal on the surface, but the implications could be huge.

By trading up to number 12 in the draft, along with their other two first round picks, the Houston Rockets are furiously building up assets which could ultimately be offered to the Orlando Magic for prized possession Dwight Howard.

Stay tuned, as this does not appear to be Houston’s end game.
