NBA.com staff report

In a move that could portend more to come, the Houston Rockets have set up a meeting with Warriors restricted free agent center Kevon Looney according to Marc Stein of The New York Times. The 23-year-old big man is coming off a career year in which he averaged 6.3 points and 5.2 rebounds on 62.5 percent shooting.

The news comes hours after word of Houston's intended meeting with Philadelphia guard Jimmy Butler. To acquire either player, the Rockets would likely need to complete sign-and-trade deals or dump salary via separate trades.
