Rockets Interested In Kosta Koufos

The Rockets would like to add another big man, and Kings center Kosta Koufos has become a “prime target,” tweets ESPN’s Marc Stein.

Koufos is averaging 5.9 points and 5.8 rebounds per night and has started 28 of the 32 games he has played this season. He is in the second season of a four-year deal that Sacramento gave him in 2015, and is making a little more than $8MM in 2016/17

The Rockets are shorthanded in the middle since center Clint Capela suffered a fracture in his left fibula last week. Second-year forward Montrezl Harrell and veteran big man Nene have been sharing the minutes at center.

Houston has also been trying to find a taker for Corey Brewer, but with little success, according to Zach Lowe of ESPN (Twitter link). Brewer is making $7.6MM this season with another year left on his contract at the same salary.
