Andy Katz: Houston-Atlanta Trade Not Happening


I hate reporting on rumors. So many of them come and go without mattering. I don't know if this is one of those or not, but here's the latest...

Jonathan Givony hasn't retracted his report of the swap of the fifth pick for the eighth pick and Luther Head, but Katz says it's dead:
Deals that are apparently dead, don't have life or never did include Houston and Atlanta swapping picks No. 5 and No. 8; Utah and Boston doing a Carlos Boozer trade that was a part of a larger package with Philadelphia, with Allen Iverson going to the Celtics; and Chicago shipping Chandler to Phoenix in a Shawn Marion deal.
