How This Trade Impacts Houston Rockets

The goal for the Houston Rockets is now the development of its young players with Jalen Green being the central focus. As a result, John Wall and the organization reached an agreement for him to not appear in games going forward until he can be moved.

One of the veteran players who still remain from the previous era is Eric Gordon. He could help a contender with his perimeter shooting ability and general versatility. On a Los Angeles Lakers team that features LeBron James, Russell Westbrook, and Anthony Davis, his skill-set would be especially helpful.

There isn’t time to waste from the Lakers’ perspective while the Rockets are in the opposite situation. They appear to be ideal trade partners especially since Houston can provide Talen Horton-Tucker with a substantial role in order to maximize his development.

It would be an intriguing option to add Kendrick Nunn into the mix for the Rockets, too. He has shown to be capable to put points on the board in a hurry when given the opportunity with the Miami Heat.
