The Houston Rockets have been searching for trade possibilities using the dead contract of Ryan Anderson.

The Rockets have expressed interest in J.R. Smith as he is owed $30.4 million over the next two seasons, though the 19-20 season is partially guaranteed.

The Rockets lost Trevor Ariza and Luc Mbah a Moute this offseason.

"I've heard they kicked the tires on J.R. Smith," said Zach Lowe on The Lowe Post.
