The Rockets are engaging in discussions with the Nets and Grizzlies regarding the third overall draft selection.

The Rockets are considering trading their third pick in the upcoming draft to secure Mikal Bridges from the Brooklyn Nets, as reported by Kevin O’Connor from The Ringer. O’Connor mentioned that the Rockets have discussed the possibility of trading down with the Grizzlies and are hopeful that the Nets might be open to exchanging Bridges for the pick. However, sources indicate that the Nets are more inclined to surround Bridges with additional talent rather than trading him away.

Should this deal come to fruition, acquiring Bridges would significantly bolster the Rockets. Bridges has posted impressive statistics, averaging 19.6 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 3.6 assists during his tenure with the Nets this season.
