    UPDATE 4:10 pm: After everyone spent hours looking for a better deal, at the last second these two decided to hook up and make this deal a reality. Battier replaces O.J. Mayo as the guy on the wing with Rudy Gay (Memphis traded Mayo to Indiana, they get Josh McRoberts back to provide front line…

  2. Everything Must Go! Rockets looking for trade-deadline deals

    Now we get to see what wunderkind Daryl Morey can really do. When he came in as general manager of the Rockets the goal was to put together a good group of role players to go around stars Yao Ming and Tracy McGrady. Morey did that — the Rockets have maybe the best collection of…

  3. Daryl Morey wants to bring ‘Melo to Houston. He just can’t talk about it.

    With the Nets out of the Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes — if they really are out — the conventional wisdom is the Knicks jump to the front of the line. That may be true, the Nuggets seem likely to have conversations with them. But if the Nuggets are willing to consider a “rent-a-‘Melo” deal, GM Daryl…

  4. Rockets not looking for picks, they want to trade for an All-Star

    Dec 30, 2010, 1:19 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Houston Rockets

    There are two sides to building a championship roster: Getting a couple All-Star players to lead it; then finding quality role players to go around them. When Daryl Morey took over as general manager of the Rockets the stars were in place — Yao Ming and Tracy McGrady. Morey built maybe the best group of…

  5. Report: Rockets listening to trade offers for Yao Ming

    Dec 27, 2010, 12:11 PM EST

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Yao Ming may be done playing for the season but he still has value in the NBA world — he is a $17 million expiring contract. Heading into a new Collective Bargaining Agreement — whatever it ends up looking like — that’s a lot of money saved and cap room freed up. The Rockets may…

  6. Rockets not bad, but adrift in NBA’s middle ground without a star to guide them

    There are two parts to constructing a winning team. First, get yourself a superstar or two. Next, get complementary and affordable role players to go around them that fit the system. The Houston Rockets have the second part of this down, it’s the first part that has Daryl Morey stuck. But he’s trying, according to…

  7. Rockets’ stand on extensions make this season now or never

    Oct 1, 2010, 4:05 PM EST

    Yao Ming does not have a contract for next season. Nor does Shane Battier. Or Chuck Hayes. Jordan Hill and Courtney Lee’s deals are at the team’s option. Aaron Brooks did not get an extension and is pretty ticked about it. The Houston Rockets are not giving out extensions to anyone, as GM Daryl Morey…

  8. Aaron Brooks wants a contract extension. Not going to happen.

    Sep 29, 2010, 9:58 AM EST

    The Houston Rockets really don’t do contract extensions. The last non-rookie deal contract extension they did was in 2004 (and that was for Tracy McGrady, which worked out so well). Aaron Brooks — the breakthrough point guard and guy who just won the Most Improved Player award — thinks he should be the exception. This…

  9. Report: The Rockets are feeling Damp

    Sep 15, 2010, 10:48 PM EST

    The Heat were expected to swoop in and grab Erick Dampier fresh off the waiver wire to bolster their weak center rotation. After all, how many teams can use a veteran center with possible injury issues who can’t really jump at this point? Daryl Morey’s got a suggestion for you. The Houston Chronicle reports that…

  10. Rockets to put 25 minute a game cap on Yao Ming

    Sep 15, 2010, 9:21 AM EST

    Rockets GM Daryl Morey wasn’t kidding when he suggested he wanted to keep Yao Ming’s minutes down this season. Well, it wasn’t a suggestion either, as he told Fran Blinebury at NBA.com. “It’s going to be hard for everybody,” Morey said. “We have talked in the past about trying to keep Yao’s minutes down over…

  11. Rockets plan to be cautious with Yao Ming's playing time. No kidding.

    Aug 31, 2010, 10:48 AM EST

    Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey is a smart man. Not that it takes a smart man to realize they need to be cautious with Yao Ming’s health, to keep his minutes down and minimize the risk. I mean, I figured it out and I’m a blogger. Yes, doctors have cleared Yao, his foot is fully…

  12. The Flip Side: Shane Battier lives again

    Aug 14, 2010, 11:42 AM EST

    Wednesday’s four-way trade saw just about every team involved walk away a winner. However, the effects of that trade are far more specific than just saying “This team got better,” or “This team accomplished its goals.” In The Flip Side, we’ll look at one player from each of the four teams — the Nets, the…

  13. Houston Rockets sign Brad Miller

    Jul 17, 2010, 2:10 PM EST

    Houston needed some depth down low, even after re-signing Luis Scola and with Yao Ming returning. They needed a center with size to come off the bench and potentially hit from the perimeter to stretch the floor. Today they addressed that need. Marc Stein of ESPN is reporting the Rockets have signed center Brad Miller…

  14. Rockets sign Luis Scola to 5-year, $47 million extension

    Jul 15, 2010, 8:57 PM EST

    Luis Scola will remain a Rocket. According to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle, the Rockets have signed the 30-year old power forward to a five-year, $47 million extension. Scola had been a restricted free agent, and his signing means that the Rockets did not lose a single player to free agency this off-season. The…

  15. NBA Draft: Rockets looking to move into the top 10

    Jun 21, 2010, 8:45 AM EST

    The Houston Rockets want some more players. They have some talent — what they really need is a healthy Yao Ming for an entire season — but you can never have enough guys to put around their star. According to the Houston Chronicle, General Manager Daryl Morey has been looking to move up out of…

  16. Rockets GM says Luis Scola isn't going anywhere

    Apr 10, 2010, 5:13 PM EST

    There’s a buffet of free agents this summer. A smorgasbord. A plethora. A myriad. There’s quite simply a free agent for anything you need. They slice! They dice! They make french fries, too! But if you were hoping your team might make a swing at Rockets forward Luis Scola, you can kill those dreams, put…
