We told you the other day about the Dallas Mavericks' stepped-up pursuit of free-agent point guard Ramon Sessions. Now Jeff Caplan of reports that the Houston Rockets have also joined the chase for the former Los Angeles Laker.

The Rockets lost starter Goran Dragic to the Phoenix Suns and then traded Kyle Lowry to the Toronto Raptors. Houston has agreed to a deal with restricted free agent Jeremy Lin, but the New York Knicks are expected to match the offer.
