    Sources: Rockets looking to move Ty Lawson, who's expected to be suspended Friday

    In what increasingly has become a fruitless experiment, the Houston Rockets are engaging in trade scenarios to move guard Ty Lawson, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

    After a recent resolution in his court case for a DUI charge in 2014, the NBA plans to suspend Lawson for two games as soon as Friday, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Since arriving in Houston this summer, Lawson has met his requirements off the floor and has had no new incidents. The push to trade him has been based on a poor basketball fit.

    The Rockets’ front office has been cooperating with Lawson’s representatives in exploring possible deals to bring back some measure of return on the organization’s original investment in Lawson, league sources said.

    Lawson relinquished the $13.2 million player option on his 2016-17 contract to clear the way for Houston to acquire him from the Denver Nuggets in July. Because Lawson has struggled to find a way to play off the ball with star James Harden on the floor, the organization and Lawson’s representatives are moving toward cutting short this experiment, league sources said.

    Lawson, 28, has dropped to career lows in virtually every offensive category, averaging 5.9 points and 4.2 assists in 25 minutes a game with Houston. Across his seven-year career, which includes six seasons in Denver, Lawson has averaged 13.7 points and 6.5 assists.

    Houston gave up four players and a future draft pick in the deal with Denver, although the Nuggets ultimately released all four players. Because of protections on the 2016 conditional first-round pick sent to the Nuggets, the selection would turn into a second-rounder in 2016 should the Rockets miss the playoffs. The Rockets also sent a 2017 second-round pick as part of the deal.

    The Rockets are 13-14, holding onto seventh place in the Western Conference standings.

    Lawson will make $12.4 million this season.

    I heard about Lawson before this season. 27 games in, I forgot he existed.

    Question is, what can we get for him, he is still a great asset

    He doesn't fit here, but somewhere else he might bring on big numbers

    I guess it's official then. Woj doesn't make stuff up.

    Too bad. I really think this is a coaching issue.

    Darren Collison. George Karl still a big fan of Lawson? I know he was willing to trade Cousins for him (and Faried).

    I think Jones, Brew and Lawson could bring us some real nice upgrades...We'll just have to wait and see what Murray will do

    lawson this yr is a myth. wasnt expecting too much from him, but cant remember see a player drop off that much.

    the thing is, he may be like rondo. rondo was poison in dallas last yr., look at him now, the leading assist man. wtf.

    feels like there isnt a single good thing happening to our team this season. smdh.
