Given Rondo's looming unrestricted free agency, any deal would have to come with assurances that he'd be willing to re-sign with his new team. While those discussions have yet to take place with agent Bill Duffy since no trade agreement is in place, a person familiar with Rondo's thinking said the possibility of competing for championships in Dallas or Houston intrigues him.

Sources told ESPN.com that the Timberwolves, beset with injuries and mired at the foot of the Western Conference with a record of 5-19, are again engaging contending teams in trade discussions for Brewer after making him available in mid-November and then abruptly pulling him off the market. The Houston Rockets and Cleveland Cavaliers, sources said, remain the most interested suitors for Brewer, but have also been joined by the Los Angeles Clippers. ESPN.com

ESPN.com has learned the Wolves granted permission to the Rockets and Cavs last month to talk to Brewer's representatives when a trade appeared imminent, since both teams would hope to persuade Brewer to waive his $4.9 million option for next season to help facilitate the trade and lessen the long-term financial implications of acquiring him. It's believed that Brewer will consider doing so for the opportunity to join a title contender. ESPN.com

The Rockets, meanwhile, have been known to ‎covet Brewer since last season, with sources saying they registered trade interest in the 28-year-old even before Brewer uncorked a career-high 51 points against Houston late last season. Rockets coach Kevin McHale drafted Brewer in Minnesota when he was still the Wolves' general manager and, according to sources, spoke directly to Brewer last month when the Wolves gave Houston permission to do so.

Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard said he will play Saturday against the Denver Nuggets after missing the last 11 games with right knee soreness. "I'm just thankful to be back out there," Howard said. "Nobody wants to sit on the bench in a suit and watch his team play. You want to get out there in the action. But I'm happy to be back out there, thankful. I thank God for just allowing me to be able to play again. I'm just happy to play again. That's the big thing." ESPN.com

James Harden is playing like an MVP. With the Rockets down three with less than :30 seconds to go on the road in Sacramento, Harden hit a three from basically Fresno. It was the kind of three that takes ridiculous confidence to even consider, but Harden was in that zone. He would go on to score the next 10 points to start the overtime, giving him 44 points on the night and the Rockets another win. NBCSports.com
