The 28 year-old has the chance to become one of the best two-way players available at the trade deadline or in free agency, therefore the Rockets and Oladipo have plenty of options between now and March 25 trade deadline and summer free agency.
ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported the news, and stated the Miami Heat and New York Knicks are among teams that have had an interest in Oladipo.
While playing for the Rockets this season, Oladipo has averaged 18.9 points, 4.9 rebounds and 4.8 assists, showcasing his ability on both ends of the floor.
