The offer was the most Houston could give Oladipo before he reaches free agency this summer. The 28-year-old is seeking a longer-term deal, according to the report, with Houston needing to decide whether to keep him past the March 25 trade deadline.
Oladipo started the season with the Pacers and was dealt to Houston in January as part of the multi-team trade featuring James Harden. He’s averaged 18.9 points, 4.9 rebounds and 4.8 assists in 13 games with the Rockets this season, shooting 39% from the floor and 29.5% from deep in those contests.
As Wojnarowski notes, the Heat and Knicks are among the teams who have expressed interest in Oladipo. Both teams would have the cap space to sign the two-time All-Star outright in free agency.
