The Houston Rockets are actively looking to trade veteran power forward Luis Scola, according to league sources briefed on Houston’s plans.
Although a specific trade partner for Houston has not yet emerged, sources told ESPN.com that the Rockets — stocked with big forwards after coming away with Royce White and Terrence Jones in the NBA draft earlier this week — are working to find a new home for Scola as they rebuild their roster.
