The Houston Rockets have included rapper Travis Scott into their latest trade offer for unsettled Minnesota Timberwolves guard Jimmy Butler, according to sources.
After the ‘Wolves rejected the Rockets’ offer of a whopping four first-round picks, the H-Town team decided to throw in hometown hero Scott. Following the release of ASTROWORLD, Scott’s value appears to be at an all-time high.
“We feel that Travis’ innovative blend of rap and RnB on ASTROWORLD makes him a very enticing add-on right now. It could take our offer over the top,” Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey said.
There is currently no word from the Timberwolves as to if they are considering the offer. There is definitely room in the Minneapolis music scene for Scott, as the city’s last big star, Prince, sadly passed away in 2016.
“There is absolutely no way Scott can replace the music legend Prince in Minnesota. We didn’t even like that one ‘Sicko Mode’ song,” Timberwolves Owner Glen Taylor said.
In contrast, center Karl Anthony-Towns said he thought Scott’s music “slapped,” and said he would love to have Scott court-side for disappointing home losses against the likes of Sacramento and Phoenix.
Scott released ASTROWORLD, his third solo album, in August 2018. It has amassed hundreds of millions of streams on Spotify. He was not available for comment.
