The Rockets want to upgrade their point guard position, and Reggie Jackson wants out of Oklahoma City. Makes sense.

The Houston Rockets badly want to upgrade their point guard spot. We already know Phoenix Suns guard Goran Dragic is not interested in re-signing with Houston if they trade for him, so the Rockets have reportedy turned their focus to Oklahoma City backup point guard Reggie Jackson.
Sources: Indy, Bos, Hou, Den all interested in Reggie Jackson. No guarantee OKC will trade him. They won't give him away.
This makes sense. Despite his shooting numbers being down this season, Jackson is a dynamic offensive weapon who can get to the basket and draw tons of fouls. He’d be a fantastic compliment to James Harden, too, lessening the burden for Houston’s MVP candidate.
Unfortunately for the Rockets, they aren’t the only team interested in making a deal. And time is running out.
