The Houston Rockets reportedly have their eyes set on acquiring a certain Los Angeles Lakers player - one who happens to be represented by Klutch Sports.

The Rockets are targeting wing Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, according to The New York Times' Marc Stein, citing unspecified sources.

Caldwell-Pope cannot be traded without signing off on the potential deal, as the Lakers retained his Bird rights after he re-signed this past summer, Stein notes.

The 25-year-old has seen his playing time diminish drastically in his second season with the Lakers, falling from 33.2 minutes per game in 2017-18 to just over 22 minutes through 31 appearances this year. Despite a reduced role, he's still averaging 9.2 points per game on a respectable 51.2 effective field goal percentage.
