With the Houston Rockets slumping recently to a 12 -13 card in the grueling NBA Western Conference, it seems like the cards are really falling into place for a Ty Lawson trade sequence.
According to Dan Favale via Bleacher Report, “The Rockets are ready to cut bait with Lawson. We think.”
Ever since his arrival in Clutch City from the Denver Nuggets, the 28-year-old point guard has had a rickety performance in every statistical category in the hard court. With Lawson unable to impress the high hopes of the management it seems a shake-up will do the trick for the high-caliber team which began a very disastrous start.
It has been insinuated that the once dynamic play-maker could find a better third home in Wisconsin with the Milwaukee Bucks. The one bright spot the Rockets have with Lawson in a trade scenario is that the latter has a non-guaranteed $13.2 million salary for next season. Lawson can improve well under the tutelage of Jason Kidd along with now-shaky 2013 Rookie of the Year Michael Carter-Williams.
A plausible movement between both camps will be the Houston Rockets trading PG Ty Lawson for both the Milwaukee Bucks’ SG OJ Mayo and PG Greivis Vasquez.
Grant Hughes, an NBA analyst was mentioned in Yibada saying “that Mayo and Vasquez are “safer pieces who fit better” in Houston than Lawson.”
Adding that, “[Lawson] just doesn’t make a lot of sense alongside their “best player” James Harden.”
Lawson though has lost his starting job to Patrick Beverly when the Rockets manangement fired Kevin McHale last November.
However in an article from Real GM, the troubled point guard was quoted saying:
“They’re pretty honest here and they would come up to me and tell me that,” Lawson explained regarding the management’s plan of putting him on the trading block.
