The Houston Rockets are continuing to express trade interest in Atlanta Hawks swingman Kent Bazemore, according to a report from Shams Charania of The Athletic.
Bazemore has reportedly been among the wings on the Rockets' radar since about the beginning of the season -- with Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Chicago Bulls swingman Justin Holiday and Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard J.R. Smith being some of the others.
Bazemore, 29, is averaging 14.0 points and 3.9 rebounds. He is in his fifth season with the Hawks.
Along with the Rockets, he has reportedly drawn at least passing interest from the Pelicans (as has Smith).
The Pelicans are on the lookout for a veteran wing to assist star big man Anthony Davis, as well as give them a lift from the perimeter on both sides of the ball.
While the Rockets and Pelicans are said to be determined in exploring the market, sources have told Amico Hoops over the past week neither appears close to any deal.
