We've already had a busy offseason in the NBA and if the rumor mill is any indication, it could get a lot busier. Another trade has been reportedly completed by the active Houston Rockets.

Rockets trade Sam Dalembert to Bucks, move up in draft - Sam Amick -

The Rockets agreed to trade center Samuel Dalembert and the No. 14 pick to the Bucks for the No. 12 pick and three players, league sources confirmed.

Now Houston has the 12th, 16th, and 18th picks and may be looking to package them to move up or maybe even make a play for Dwight Howard (regardless of his intentions of re-signing).

Florida Gators' Bradley Beal -- Oklahoma City Thunder have talked moving up - ESPN

Beal told Wednesday that Oklahoma City general manager Sam Presti told him during an interview in Chicago that he was interested in trying to move up to draft him. The Thunder's first-round pick isn't until No. 28. "He told me he was going to decide what they're going to do and considered getting up there," Beal said.

Danny can't sit on the sidelines the whole time during all this, can he? I suspect he's still waiting for KG to make his decision, but I'd imagine that he'll act swiftly enough tomorrow night. I just get a feeling that something's going to go down. Call it a tingling spidey sense.
