ESPN's Marc Stein tweeted out that the Houston Rockets are trying to make a number of moves, and they seem to be targeting the Utah Jazz as a potential destination for some of the players they no longer want. They want to move Ty Lawson, and they may be willing to take Trey Burke and Trevor Booker back for him.

Of course, the obvious point here is explained by Kevin Pelton, also of ESPN:

Yeah, I'm not so Jazzed about this possible move. Lawson is a speedy point guard who isn't a knock down three point shooter. That doesn't seem to mix with what Quin Snyder is doing with our club, nor does it fit an immediate need. I'd rather roll with Dante Exum, Raul Neto, and Trey Burke going forward. But that's just me.
