Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey continued to wheel and deal Wednesday afternoon in preparation for Thursday’s NBA draft, as Houston has traded center Samuel Dalembert and the 14th overall pick to the Milwaukee Bucks for the 12th pick and three players.

In addition to the 12th pick, the Rockets will receive guard Shaun Livingston and forwards Jon Leuer and Jon Brockman.

The Rockets now own the 12th, 16th and 18th picks in Thursday’s draft. They acquired the 18th pick Tuesday in a trade that sent Chase Budinger to Minnesota.

Dalembert played one season for the Rockets, averaging 7.5 points and seven rebounds in 65 games. Only $1.5 million of Dalembert’s $6.7 million team option for next season is guaranteed, so the Bucks can waive him and make him a free agent.

The goal for Houston seems to be to build a substantial package to acquire a big name (i.e. Dwight Howard or Pau Gasol) or move up into the lottery.
