Report: Houston Rockets place Luis Scola on trade block

After coming away with two big forwards in Thursday's NBA Draft, the Houston Rockets have placed forward Luis Scola on the trade block, ESPN's Marc Stein reported Saturday.

Scola joins guards Kyle Lowry and Kevin Martin — the Rockets' three leading scorers from last season — on the trade block. Stein reports there are no specific deals on the table. The Rockets are telling teams that Scola is available.

The Rockets made a pair of trades leading up to Thursday's draft, dealing swingman Chase Budinger and center Samuel Dalembert to add two picks in the team's first round. The Rockets are looking to stockpile assets for an eventual run at Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard. But last Sunday, NBA.com's David Aldridge reported that there was "no chance" Howard would stay in Houston past next season.

The Rockets took small forwards Royce White and Terrence Jones — along with guard Jeremy Lamb — in Thursday's draft.

In the infamous vetoed three-team trade that would have sent Chris Paul to the Los Angeles Lakers last December, the Rockets tried to send away Martin and Scola in a deal that would have brought them Pau Gasol in return.

Scola, 32, scored 15.5 points and grabbed 6.4 rebounds last season.
