NBA Draft 2019 rumors: Rockets may be looking to trade into top 20

The Rockets could be looking to acquire a pick.

Houston has been “trying to get first-round level prospects in for workouts, baiting agents with the idea they can and likely will trade for a pick in the top 20,” according to a report from Basketball Insiders. The Rockets do not currently hold a selection in the upcoming draft.

Houston has discussed a deal that would potentially send center Clint Capela to Boston, the report says. The Celtics hold three first-round picks – Nos. 14, 20 and 22 – in 2019.

Rockets general manager Daryl Morey has made “all players and picks” available this offseason, according to an earlier report from ESPN. It is highly unlikely the team deals star James Harden, though, that report notes.
