Here's an idea.

Pacers Trade: TJ Ford, 1st Round Pick (Top-10 protected)
Rockets Trade: Rafer Alston, Carl Landry

Why: The Rockets get an upgrade at PG and a mid-first round pick to help rebuild their aging, oft-injured core. The Pacers get a capable PG who's a better outside shooter and distributor than Ford. We also get Carl Landry, who's likely to be as good as any PF we'd be able to land in this draft.

A good trade idea for the Pacers end but the Rockets would never let Landry go for that.

Wow. I think the Rockets would do this trade without the pick. Ford is much better than Alston. But I could see a deal centered around Ford and Landry without Alston, but throw in another contract to get it done. They are loooking for an upgrade at point. Alston is older than you think and Ford would be an excellent compliment to Houston since they are a contender out west. Especially looking forward post-Alston.
