Free-agency layup line: Dinner reservations

All of the little free-agency stories that flow through. We'll have several of these throughout the day, updated regularly.

Yahoo Sports! reports that the Rockets are aiming for a sign and trade package featuring Luis Scola (also a free agent), Shane Battier, and Trevor Ariza. General Manager Daryl Morey is still trying to swoop in and snatch up a max free agent power forward, either Chris Bosh or Amar'e Stoudemire. If the Suns continue to be unwilling to provide that fifth year, then Morey is going to offer one of the more impressive packages for the Suns, with reasonable contracts and high end talent.

The Celtics have reached out to David Lee, according to the Boston Globe. A curious move considering the Celtics' cap space. With Paul Pierce considering a 4 year, $61 million offer and Ray Allen sure to attract his own substantial digits, you have to wonder where the Celtics are going to find room for Lee, who is arguably the third best power forward available (depending on how you feel about Carlos "I enjoy the feeling of being blocked" Boozer). That's a lot of dough the Celtics would have to provide, and figuring out how Lee and Kevin Garnett would occupy the same space on the floor would be a bit tricky too.

Hoopsworld reports that Real Madrid in Spain has inked Sergio Rodriguez. Have I mentioned the Knicks are going to need a point guard? Because they're going to need a point guard.
