The Houston Rockets have reportedly decided that they do not have the assets to complete a trade for Kevin Love.

The Minnesota Timberwolves power forward has been linked with a move away from the team this off-season, with the Rockets among those thought to be interested in acquiring him.

USA Today reports that the team believe that they can be "outgunned" by other sides for the 25-year-old, despite being willing to trade Omer Asik and Jeremy Lin.

Love averaged 26.1 points per game during the 2013-14 season with Minnesota.
