The Houston Rockets and Sacramento Kings have discussed a trade centered around Ryan Anderson, according to a report from Kelly Iko of Rockets Wire.
The Rockets are aggressively trying to move Anderson, who is due to make more than $20 million next season and just more than $21 million in 2019-20.
In regards to possible talks between Houston and Sacramento involving Ryan Anderson, I’m told to “expect that they have discussed”, according to a person familiar with negotiations.

Anderson played in 66 games this past season and averaged 9.3 points and 5.0 rebounds while shooting 43.1 percent from the field and 38.6 percent from three.
Anderson, 30, barely got off the bench in the playoffs, scoring just 1.7 points per game.
If Rockets general manager Daryl Morey is unable to find a taker for Anderson, Houston may seek a contract buyout with Anderson.
Carmelo Anthony is expected to sign with the Rockets after he gets waived by the Atlanta Hawks.
