Source: Rockets Shopping Patrick Beverley


The 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 could get a deal done before Thursday’s NBA Draft.

Beverley was originally brought to the NBA by the Rockets in 2012, while he was playing for St. Petersburg in Russia. He had been the Eurocup MVP for Spartak the previous season. He became the Rockets’ starting point guard the following year, and has held that spot since.
