    The Minnesota Timberwolves and Houston Rockets, who have been discussing a Mike James-for-Juwan Howard swap in one form or another since the February trade deadline, have agreed in principle to finally complete that deal this month, ESPN.com has learned.

    An announcement of the trade's completion could be made as early as this week, according to NBA front-office sources.
    The holdup stems from the possibility that another player or two could be added to the deal, sources say. The teams, though, have verbally agreed to a straight-up exchange of James for Howard at the very least.

    Typical McHale ho hum move. At this point in the player's careers, pretty ho hum for the Rockets too. Whoever's player comes off the books first is the winner.
