Unless the two sides completed the deal before midnight ET on Saturday, a potential trade would have to wait until July 11 for completion, when the league lifts its embargo for transactions.

UPDATE: 6/30/2012 10:03pm

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.

Veteran guards Kyle Lowry and Kevin Martin have also been made available in various trade scenarios by the Rockets as they continue to stockpile young assets as part of their well-chronicled intent to pursue Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard or another franchise player in trade scenarios.

Scola, a 2002 second-round pick by San Antonio, played in all 66 games last season. The 32-year-old Argentinian averaged 15.5 points and 6.4 rebounds per game in 2011-12, his lowest marks since the '08-'09 season.

Martin and Lowry, along with Scola, represent Houston's three leading scorers from last season despite Martin and Lowry playing in just 40 and 47 games, respectively.

The Rockets tried to deal Martin and Scola to New Orleans last December as part of the failed three-team trade that would have sent Chris Paul to the Los Angeles Lakers and brought Pau Gasol to Houston.

Are we trying to clear cap space, or are we going into full tank mode?

sad to see the day we have to trade Scola, but he would be worth much more to a contending team.

one of my favorite players. I understand why he should go but I really hope he's dealt to a contending team (prefer the east) ....

he'll end up at a crap orginization where he'd be the best player... Toronto, Charlotte Cleveland washington.. I would love to see him go to a contender.. but his contract blows and they wont have pieces we are looking for

Thanks for the update but to be honest this isn't news worthy to any of us who follow the Rockets.

Cap space and not necessarily tank mode but rebuild mode. We need spots to play the young guys. They tank mode could be just a consequence of this strategy.
