ORLANDO, Fla. -

The Houston Rockets are ready to make a trade for Dwight Howard, sources confirmed to Local 6 Sports Director David Pingalore.

NBA sources have confirmed to Pingalore on Thursday night that the Rockets will not only give picks and players, but "cash is the priority."

Pingalore was told this was the team Howard is most likely to end up at. However, Pingalore also learned Oklahoma City is making a push for the Magic center. Pingalore was told that the Thunder are offering James Harden and Serge Ibaka.

Pingalore's sources believe Houston will be the final destination point, despite Oklahoma City's offer to the Magic.
