The Houston Rockets won't have to give anything up to get their man.
Wright waived his trade kicker Thursday so he could go to Houston in a deal that ultimately fell through, according to The Ringer's Chris Vernon.
The 30-year-old big man is averaging five points on 57.6 percent shooting to go along with 3.4 rebounds in 13.6 minutes per outing. He's a good finisher around the rim, downing shots at a 74.3 percent clip within three feet of the basket over his career. That skill set should bode well for the second-place Rockets thanks to elite playmakers James Harden and Chris Paul.
