Report: Houston Rockets Went After Cleveland Cavaliers Center Tristan Thompson
- Updated: February 6, 2020
In fact, one recent report says that the Houston Rockets pursued Thompson, but could not find a way to get a deal done.
Yahoo Sources: Houston did its due diligence on Cleveland center Tristan Thompson, but are unable to get to his number to make a trade work. If Thompson makes it past deadline, a buyout is not an option.

There have been multiple rumors regarding Thompson in the past few days.
Earlier this week, the Rockets completed a trade to acquire Robert Covington and Jordan Bell.
While that does not necessarily take them out of the market for a center, especially because they parted ways with center Clint Capela as a part of that aforementioned trade, it does significantly reduce their trade chips.
With time running out before the trade deadline, the Cavs may not be able to ultimately find a workable move for Thompson.
If that comes to pass, it will be up to Thompson to continue to lead this young squad through the rebuilding process for the remainder of the season.
With Thompson’s current deal set to expire this summer, he would likely become a major free agent target for a number of teams in the upcoming offseason.
