Jordan's name has popped up in several rumors, though the Rockets haven't been one of the teams recently connected to the All-Star center.
ESPN.com's Zach Lowe reported in October the Rockets and Clippers had "semiserious traction" on a deal last season that would have sent Jordan to Houston for Clint Capela, draft picks and other players.
Since starting 11-18, the Clippers have won 11 of their last 14 contests to climb one game over .500 and sit in the No. 7 seed in the Western Conference standings.
Jordan is signed through this season and has a $24.1 million player option for next season, per Spotrac.
Despite losing eight of their last 13 games, the Rockets own the second-best record in the Western Conference at 30-12.
