The Houston Rockets, fully aware of the strained relationship between Howard and the Magic, have been stockpiling draft picks in an attempt to trade for the superstar center. The Rockets are still trying to acquire first-round picks in the hours leading up to the draft, specifically the Sacramento Kings’ fifth overall pick and Toronto Raptors’ eighth overall pick. Houston knows that Hennigan would prefer to rebuild through the draft, following the same model as the Oklahoma City Thunder, where he was the assistant general manager under Sam Presti. If Orlando has given up hope of retaining Howard, Houston seems to be the frontrunner to acquire the All-Star center. HoopsWorld
