Victor Oladipo Turns Down Latest Contract Offer from the Rockets

Things are going from bad to worse in Houston as the Rockets continue to lose games and now reports are surfacing Victor Oladipo isn't interested in what the team is offering him for his next contract.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Rockets offered the shooting-guard a two-year contract extension worth $45.2, the maximum allowed, and Oladipo turned it down.

It's believed the two-time All-Star is looking for at least a five-year contract extension and will be heading to free-agency if he needs to, to secure the bag.

The Rockets acquired Oladipo via the Indiana Pacers as he was a part of the James Harden mega-deal earlier this season.

So far the former #2 overall draft pick is off to a decent start in Houston as he's appeared in 12 games and is averaging 18.9 points, 4.9 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 1.2 steals per game. 

The Rockets will continue to offer Oladipo an extension before the March 25th deadline, but there's certainly a chance he's moved once again if the two sides can't agree to terms.

The Miami Heat and Philadelphia 76ers are two teams who will have heavy interest, should Oladipo become available once again on the trade market.
