Rockets Want To Land Rajon Rondo
The Rockets want to acquire Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo, according to sources familiar with Houston's thinking.
Yet sources told ESPN.com that talks between the teams have not progressed to a serious stage because the sides can't agree on the framework of a trade.
One main stumbling block, sources said, is Boston's desire to acquire blossoming Houston swingman Chandler Parsons in a potential Rondo deal. Sources say the Rockets have informed the Celtics that they are not prepared to surrender Parsons as part of a Rondo package.
