If the Rockets hope to land Butler, they're going to have to put together a significant package to send to Philadelphia. In order to create that package, Houston is reportedly looking to trade some of its top talent for first-round draft picks.
As reported by ESPN's NBA guru Adrian Wojnarowski, the Rockets won't look to move Capela, Gordon, and Tucker together, but instead individually to teams with enough space to absorb the three players salaries.
That strategy will undoubtedly help them get the most possible in return since they'll be dealing with different teams with different needs.
In order to acquire Butler on a sign-and-trade deal from Philadelphia, the Rockets will need to dump a fair amount of money, especially since they want to keep James Harden and can't get rid of Chris Paul.
Daryl Morey better get the phones going if he wants to make this happen.
