In talks around the league, the Rockets are expressing hope they can find a deal - or a series of deals - that would bring them back a wing and a center for Capela by Thursday's 3 p.m. ET trade deadline, sources said.
Denver is expected to be active as the trade deadline approaches, as well as the Rockets, who keep the flexibility of $12 million in cap space so they are better equipped to improve their roster at the trade deadline.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Rockets have spoken to several Eastern Conference teams, including the Atlanta Hawks, about a potential trade involving center Clint Capela. The 29-year-old got his start in the National Basketball Association with the Rockets, too, playing seven games for them in his rookie season.
Capela gives the Hawks, who had been tied to Detroit Pistons' big man Andre Drummond in trade rumors, the center that they have been looking for.
Nene has averaged 3.6 points and 2.9 rebounds in 42 games for Houston this season, though the 37-year-old has started in just two of them and is averaging less than 14 minutes per contest.

Also in the deal: Jarred Vanderbilt is leaving Denver for Minnesota, and the Timberwolves are getting Keita Bates-Diop, Noah Vonleh and Gerald Green from the Nuggets as well as Evan Turner from the Hawks.
ESPN and The Athletic first reported the trade, which was subsequently confirmed by other outlets, including the Houston Chronicle and Denver Post.
He was averaging 13.9 points and 13.8 rebounds a game for the Rockets but recently has been sidelined with a heel injury.
Green will waive his right to veto being included in this deal, a source told ESPN's Tim MacMahon.
