Because Broussard said he wants to be a Laker? Lol. If Broussard knew anything Dwight would've stayed a Laker and Kawhi would be one right now. He's a hack
He made the "blown away" comment once...during 2017 free agency...and he was apparently blowing smoke even then. His primary objective was to drive up the Warriors offer
so he feigned interest in Houston.
He made snide comments about the Rockets during and after the 2018 playoffs, dismissing their legitimacy as a threat to the Warriors and then did the same again this year.
Of course you can dismiss that as heat-of-competition
bravado but to me it seemed indicative of a lack of respect for the Rockets.
Also, Iuodala's shady exit from Denver doesn't paint him in the best light either.
This is not to say that if he were traded to the Rockets he wouldn't be professional and fulfill his contract, I just question how enthusiastic he would be about it.
BTW, no one with any sense gives credence to anything Chris Broussard says. His career is a running joke at this point.
