On the Rockets making inquiries on Dirk in the trade market: “I was like, ‘Are you kidding me?’ He asked if we’d trade Dirk. At first I thought it was taunting, but now knowing more about Daryl I don’t think it was in hindsight. That’s just not his style. It says a lot about their approach more than anything else. They just have a different understanding and approach to chemistry than we do. Some teams, and that’s not just the Rockets, just put together talent and the talent takes care of itself. We think chemistry matters. When Carmelo came to visit us, there was no chance that we were going to put him in someone else’s jersey number and put it on the outside of the arena. That’s not our style.” Dallas Morning News

On 'untradeable contract' Chandler Parsons: I was just offended that they didn't view me as that third star when I think I'm more than that. In all honesty, I have nothing but respect and love for them. They did this a year early when they didn't have to. I get why they did, to not let me get to unrestricted next summer. I've had nothing but great memories there. The entire organization, the fans in Houston were great for me. They believed in me initially and took a chance on me. I wish them nothing but the best. At the end of the day, it's a business. He had to do what he thought was best for his organization and I had to do what's best for my career. I figure it will work out for both of us.

The New Orleans Pelicans announced today that the team has acquired Omer Asik, Omri Casspi and cash considerations from the Houston Rockets in a three-team trade that sends Alonzo Gee, Scotty Hopson and the Pelicans’ protected first round pick in the 2015 NBA Draft to the Rockets and Melvin Ely to the Washington Wizards. As part of the three-team trade, the Rockets have acquired Trevor Ariza from the Wizards. NBA.com

David 'Dubi' Pick: "This is a big season for my career, it's important that I play," Omri Casspi said upon arrival in Israel. New Orleans isn't the best situation for me. We'll finalize terms of split," Omri Casspi added. Twitter @IAmDPick

Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey announced today that the team has completed a three-team deal with Washington and New Orleans. The Rockets will receive Trevor Ariza in a sign-and-trade from Washington, as well as Alonzo Gee, Scotty Hopson, and a valuable 2015 protected first round draft pick from New Orleans. This first round draft pick is a near guaranteed lottery pick structured like the Toronto Raptors first round pick that was the key to the James Harden trade. The Rockets will send center Omer Asik and forward Omri Casspi, and cash considerations to New Orleans. NBA.com

Washington Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld announced today that the team has completed a three-team trade with Houston and New Orleans. As part of the deal, the Wizards will sign free agent forward Trevor Ariza and send him to the Rockets, netting them a trade exception and center Melvin Ely. NBA.com

Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey has high praise for the Dallas Mavericks' front office and former forward Chandler Parsons. Compliments aside, there's a reason Houston declined to match the Mavs' offer to Parsons. "The contract (Parsons) got...the Mavericks are a smart organization; they obviously wanted to get him...that structure of that (contract) is literally one of the most untradeable structures I've ever seen," Morey told KBME-AM 790 in Houston.

Of course, as SportsDay's Eddie Sefko points out, it's only an "untradable" contract if someone desires Parsons be traded. No one in the Mavs' organization intends to trade Parsons. Mavs president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson echoed that sentiment Monday on KESN-FM 103.3. "We're not looking to move (Chandler Parsons). We hope he's here for a long, long time," Nelson said. "In terms of the trade-ability, we've had some pretty interesting contracts in past and were able to get off of them. So I don't think there's such a thing as an untradable contract. But that's clearly not the spirit of which we're doing this. Dallas Morning News

The Houston Rockets' long anticipated trade of Omer Asik to New Orleans has expanded to become a three-team trade involving Washington and Trevor Ariza, according to sources close to the process. Sources told ESPN.com that the Rockets and Pelicans have agreed to turn their previously agreed deal headlined by Asik into a three-team swap that folds in the agreement Houston struck Saturday to sign Ariza, thus creating a valuable trade exception for Washington. The trade, sources say, calls for the Pelicans to receive Asik, Rockets swingman Omri Casspi and $1.5 million in cash from Houston. ESPN.com
