Houston Rockets Receive: F/C Dario Saric, G/F Landry Shamet, F Jordan Nwora, 2023 Second-Round Pick (MIL), 2024 Second-Round Pick (POR via MIL), 2025 Second-Round Pick (IND via MIL), 2028 Second-Round Pick (MIL)
Milwaukee Bucks Receive: F Jae Crowder
Phoenix Suns Receive: G/F Eric Gordon, G/F Grayson Allen
On the other hand, there’s a reason Gordon is stranded on the Rockets.
The organization has set a firm asking price for him. All reports indicate that the Rockets are set on acquiring a first-round pick for Gordon. That may be a little optimistic.
When you consider Gordon’s contract, that holds especially true. The number of players in his pay grade that teams would deem expendable enough to attach a first-round pick to in order to move is slim.
If the Heat don’t want to move Duncan Robinson, or the Mavericks don’t want to move Davis Bertans, we’re out of ideas.
