According to NBA Trade rumors, Dwight Howard, one of the star players of Houston Rockets might be one of the top candidates of the teams to be traded very soon.

SB Nation has recently reported that this ex-front liner of the Los Angeles Lakers, who has been shortlisted, might be allowed to go as a repercussion of the sacking of the coach Kevin McHale in November this year.

According to another report published recently, claims have been made by sources that Howard is not happy at all to play send fiddle to the superstar James Harden.

So far, in this season, Howard has an average of 13.1 points for the total number of games played by him. He has had about 58.1 percentage of field goal shooting in his kitty.

Rocket’s list does not end with Howard. The name of Ty Lawson is supposed to be also there in the list. The point guard, 28, had been signed in the month of July this year. His average has been 3.4 points per game as on date. According to another report published by Yahoo! Sports, Ty Lawson is currently in the final year of his contract worth 13 million USD.

The names of Chicago Bull’s three big players are also supposedly in the list for being traded. Taj Gibson, Joakim Noah, and Laker Pau Gasol would apparently leave their team by the February deadline of the trade.

Apparently, the team has decided to let go of these three big players so that some young blood can take their places.

While Gasol and Noah might be set free, and Bull might opt to go for younger players rather than roping in some big but ageing men, there is still another year left on Gibson’s contract. However, young power forwards such as Bobby Portis and Nikola Mirotic are surely in place.

Based on a report of Christianpost.com, Miles Plumlee from Milwaukee Bucks’ name also features on this lost as he does not have had much of playing time during the current season.

If these NBA trade rumors come true, we would see a lot of exciting shuffling happening soon.
