The trade deadline is less than a month a way now, and wea€™re all waiting to see what GM Daryl Morey, known for making deadline deals almost every year, has in store for theA Houston Rocketsthis season.

Therea€™s been a ton of rumors floating around already this year (Bazemore, Batum, ect...) and ita€™s well-known that the Rockets would like to add another wing to their cadre of shooters, but the one rumor that doesna€™t seem to be going away is their reported interest inA J.R. SmithA of theA Cleveland Cavaliers.

According toA Sam Amico of Amico HoopsA and then later picked up byA Cavaliers Nation, the Rockets are willing to take J.R. Smith from the Cavs provided that Cleveland is willing to take back one important piece:

a€œIa€™m fine if you dona€™t wantA Carmelo AnthonyA under any circumstance. But Ia€™m telling you, the Rockets are the only team thata€™s slightly interested in Smith. They would do the trade if you took back Carmelo as part of the package. At the very least, they would think long and hard about it. Knowing that, I think ita€™s a call the Cavs have to make. They MUST find a way to trade J.R. He isna€™t taking a buyout. Forget it. Not happening.a€
