After hopes of coming to the Houston Rockets to help boost a team who was a series win away from going to the NBA Finals, the Ty Lawson experiment could be coming to an end.

Lawson, averaging a career low 6.0 points per game this season, could get a contract buy-out from the Rockets due to his sub-par play and also off court issues that have made this season something he would like to forget.

From Yahoo! Sports:

The Houston Rockets and guard Ty Lawson are exploring a contract buyout, league sources told The Vertical.

After an initial unwillingness to part with Lawson post-NBA trade deadline, the Rockets could use the savings on a possible buyout to clear salary-cap space to acquire other players becoming available through buyouts, league sources said.

Houston discussed trade-deadline deals on Lawson, but was unable to find a suitable trade. Lawson is still owed $3.2 million on his 2015-16 contract, having already been paid $9.2 million.
