Embattled Phoenix Suns forward Markieff Morris could reportedly soon be granted the trade he wanted during the offseason.

Multiple reports on Tuesday said the 26-year-old could be traded to the Houston Rockets in exchange for guard Corey Brewer and forward Terrence Jones. 

Morris is averaging 11.4 points and 5.2 rebounds per game this season with the Suns, but his playing time has been reduced significantly of late, adding fuel to speculation that he could be moved soon.

In April, Markieff Morris and his twin brother Marcus were charged with felony aggravated assault stemming from an incident in January. Markieff has also lashed out at Suns fans for their perceived lack of support.

Marcus Morris was traded to the Pistons in June. Markieff Morris demanded a trade of his own in August but changed his tune the following month, telling the media that he wants to remain in Phoenix.
