The Houston Rockets have not interest in pursuing their version of “The Process,” according to a source.

“The Process” would entail the Rockets trading off veterans to collect assets and also improve their lottery chances.

The Oklahoma City Thunder have the right to switch draft picks with the Rockets unless the pick lands in the top-4. Unless selecting in the top four picks of the draft, the Rockets would get the worst from among Oklahoma City’s, Miami’s, and their own pick.

There is significant interest in P.J. Tucker, who would not seem to fit in long-term plans.

Victor Oladipo, who will be a free agent this offseason, is another player who could be dealt.

The Rockets in general believe that Eric Gordon and other players on long-term contracts are on good deals they would be willing to keep.
