From the Sporting News:
The Houston Rockets have been actively shopping point guard Patrick Beverley, a source with knowledge of the situation told Sporting News on Tuesday.
Beverley, who averaged 9.5 points, 5.9 rebounds and 4.2 assists last season, has been open to a trade away from Houston leading into this offseason, the source said, and has consulted with the team about the possible move. […]
The Rockets have been planning to pursue first-tier free agents this summer, and could be willing to move Beverley if it helps create cap space.
