Beijing October 16th, according to NBA reporter Brandon Robinson, the Houston Rockets are interested in getting 76ers center Joel Embiid through a trade. Robinson said that he heard that except Harden, everyone on the Rockets lineup can be traded.
据NBA记者布兰登·罗宾逊（Brandon Robinson）称，北京10月16日，休斯敦火箭队有兴趣通过交易获得76人中锋乔尔·恩比伊德（Joel Embiid）。鲁滨逊说，他听说除了哈登之外，火箭阵容中的每个人都可以交易。
After general manager Morey officially resigned, the coach of this team is still undecided, but it seems that he intends to abandon the five small lineup. In this season's playoffs, the Rockets' Super Five team was completely blown by the Lakers, which may have caused boss Fertitta to completely lose confidence in this play. The Rockets are interested in getting Embiid, and they should also want to return to normal play with a center. If Harden and Embiid join forces, the power of this combination is still not small.
However, it is difficult to say whether their tempers can live in harmony. Many fans may still remember a regular season in 2019. Harden and Embiid scolded during the game, and the two teams almost clashed.
Even if Harden Embiid has no problem getting along, the Rockets’ bargaining chips may be difficult to impress Philadelphia. After all, Embiid is only 26 years old and is at the peak of his career. Last season he averaged 23 points, 11.6 rebounds and 3 assists.
The players that the Rockets can trade for are mostly older. Westbrook is considered to be an All-Star guard who has passed his prime.
In the comment area, many fans believe that such a chip cannot move the 76ers. One fan wrote: "Except for Harden, Philadelphia will not accept any offer (for Embiid), so this transaction will not happen. Houston traded Covington and Gordon for Horford and the draft picks. More likely."
The scope of Houston's selection of coaches has been reduced, and Jeff Van Gundy has become one of the hottest candidates. Van Gundy likes to use a center. If he takes office, even if the Rockets can't catch up with Embiid, it is estimated that they will try to dig out a good fifth player.
