The Nuggets, sources say, will acquire the non-guaranteed contract of forward Kostas Papanikolaou and the partially guaranteed contract of veteran guard Pablo Prigioni along with Joey Dorsey, Nick Johnson and the future first-round pick. Sources say Denver will also send a 2017 second-round pick to Houston with Lawson, who is currently in rehab in Los Angeles after his second DUI arrest in 2015. Sources told ESPN.com that, though the trade is unlikely to be formally completed before Monday, Lawson was notified Sunday evening that he’s on his way to Houston.

Unfortunately, not everyone agrees it’s an issue. In fact, team officials who do may be in the minority. “Change the rule? For what?” asked an Eastern Conference GM who is on the NBA’s Competition Committee. “For DeAndre Jordan and Dwight Howard? Learn to shoot free throws.” A league source says that almost 80% of this season’s hacking was done to five players: Jordan, Andre Drummond of Detroit and Howard, Josh Smith and Joey Dorsey of Houston.

The Rockets have four players – Dwight Howard, Josh Smith, Clint Capela and Joey Dorsey – who shoot below 60 percent from the free-throw line. As the Rockets prepare to play the Mavericks in the first round of the playoffs Saturday night, they know the hacking strategy might be in play. “We definitely understand and know they are going to throw every curveball possible that they have at us to throw us off our game plan, but we are mentally strong and mentally prepared,” Smith said. “Guys have been coming in, getting extra shots in, extra free throws to be focused for those moments. Hopefully if it comes, we can make them pay and knock them down.”
