Rockets gauging trade interest in Anderson

Rockets forward Ryan Anderson could be on the move before the trade deadline.

The Houston Rockets (38-13) have the second best record in the Western Conference and are viewed by many as the most prolific offense in the league, but that doesn’t mean general manager Daryl Morey won’t tinker with the roster.

According to a report from ESPN Houston, the Rockets are testing the trade market for stretch forward Ryan Anderson.

Anderson was mentioned in the Carmelo Anthony trade rumors that dominated the summer. He’s in the second year of a four-year, $80 million deal — a contract Houston’s brass would like to shed.

Entering Monday, the Rockets have made 797 3-pointers, by far the most in the league. Anderson has contributed 107 threes on the season and is averaging 10.2 points and 5.4 rebounds in 28.4 minutes per game.

The NBA trade deadline is Thursday at 3 p.m. EST.
