Houston Rockets trade rumors have a Zach Randolph trade with the Memphis Grizzlies becoming possible. According to a report from Sunday (Jan. 20), the Grizzlies are becoming more inclined to hold on to Rudy Gay, making Randolph very available to the right trading partner.
This is where Houston could become a serious player for the services of Randolph, especially because the team could really use a low post presence on offense. The Rockets might have to give up a really good player or two from the bench crew, but getting Randolph and making a serious run at the postseason could be worth it.
In the world of fantasy basketball, a trade like this could cause a lot of dominoes to fall. Should Randolph go to the Rockets, the value of Marc Gasol would go up and the value of Omer Asik could go down. Gasol would likely see more offensive opportunities as well as rebounding chances with the Grizzlies, while Asik could see a dip in his numbers for the Rockets with Randolph cleaning up the glass.
These Houston Rockets trade rumors are made even more interesting because a Zach Randolph trade would help out another Western Conference team. The Memphis Grizzlies might want to be careful about a trade like this, especially when it involves a team that might be battling them for a better seed in the 2013 NBA Playoffs.
