Victor Oladipo has apparently recently rejected an early contract extension with the Houston Rockets. The prospective free agent probably waived a new, two-year deal in Texas.

This is what Adrian Wojnarowski reports from ESPN . Accordingly, the Rockets presented the 28-year-old with an offer for two years and $ 45.2 million, the maximum they can offer before the start of Oladipos Free Agency next summer.

However, Oladipo is looking for a longer-term contract, so Woj. The Rockets could only present one in the offseason. The Guard is in the final year of a four-year contract that grossed him $ 85 million.

Complete NBA All-Star starter voting, from LeBron James to Nate Hinton

  Complete NBA All-Star starter voting, from LeBron James to Nate Hinton LeBron James led the NBA in All-Star starter voting by fans (5,922,554), fellow players (214) and media (100). But despite winning the overall fan vote for the fifth straight year, something he previously said drove him him to compete hard in All-Star games, LeBron is not enthused about going to Atlanta for this year’s event. Nate Hinton received no player or media All-Star votes and just 238 fan votes, the fewest in the NBA. But he’s not far removed from just being happy to hear his name called on draft night. Not as an actual selection. But by the Mavericks, who called to sign him as undrafted free agent.

Oladipo only came to Texas in mid-January as part of the James Harden blockbuster trade. However, since the trade there has been repeated speculation that the Rockets could ship Oladipo before the trade deadline on March 25th. After declining to renew an early contract, this is still an option.

According to the report, there have not yet been any concrete trade talks between Houston and other teams. Both the Miami Heat and the New York Knicks are said to be interested. However, it is still conceivable that the Rockets will keep the guard and present him with a lucrative, long-term offer in the summer. Houston could offer up to five years and $ 195 million.

Oladipo is one of the best two-way guards in the league. In the current season he puts on an average of 19.4 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.6 assists at 40.3 percent from the field and 32.3 percent from downtown. However, in the past he had repeatedly struggled with injury problems.
