According to one of the latest NBA Trade rumors, both Ty Lawson and The Rockets have finally realized that they are not proper for each other and might soon go their separate ways.
It seems that Lawson and the Houston Rockets have been collaborating with each other for finding a trade so that this point guard can move out of Houston.
The 27-year-old Lawson was traded by the Rockets this July after he was made available by the Nuggets that followed an arrest. The deal was a good one as there was a low price and Lawson was at his best at that time.
According to SB Nation, things seem to have changed now with both sides not reluctant to part from each other.
NBA Trade Rumors say that the front office of the Rockets have been working with the representatives of Lawson, so that a new home could be found for the latter.
As far as Lawson is concerned, it seems he is unhappy with the kind of role he is now having in Houston.
Why is it ok to go separate ways?
Currently, Lawson is going through a very rough patch in his career. His average is just 4 assists and 6 points during shooting. It is completely understandable why he might opt for a change of scenery. This is particularly apt when you consider his current contract situation. I would definitely not be a surprise for him to be a part of a team that has the potential to feature him well so that his value goes up.
Why should they not part ways?
Though the Rockets looked mediocre, they might be going for the playoffs. If there is a strong performance after the season, Lawson’s value might go up. Only if any interest is shown by some other playoff team, Lawson can be lucky to get the role that he apparently wants.
According to NBA Trade Rumors, Lawson might do well to stay in Houston so that he is out of trouble. It would be good for him to stay away from being traded and experiencing new challenges.
As far is the Rockets are concerned, Lawson is currently serving the final year of his contract with the team.
