The Houston Rockets have initiated trade conversations with other teams regarding center Dwight Howard ahead of the Feb. 18 trade deadline, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

The team is working with Howard’s agent Dan Fegan to make a deal happen, according to the report.

The eight-time NBA All-Star is expected to hit the free agent market this summer by exercising an opt-out clause in his contract. Howard would likely seek a maximum contract from potential suitors.
