The Houston Rockets are reportedly interested in Jimmy Butler.  There’s just one problem, they don’t have the cap space to sign him as a free agent.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, they have another plan.  They want Butler to attempt to force a sign and trade from the Sixers.

If Butler is successful in forcing a sign and trade with the Sixers, then the Rockets will likely be shaking up their starting five after all.  That’s something they said they wouldn’t be doing this off-season.

It wouldn’t be the first time a team’s off-season priorities changed.  But it would likely mean a significant piece would be headed to Philly.
