Wilks has been mentioned in a possible trade that would send Eric Piatkowski, Adrian Griffin and Wilks to the Chicago Bulls in exchange for center Dikembe Mutombo.

Wilks' agent, Bill Neff, said in an interview with Houston television KRIV that Wilks has agreed to a sign and trade. Mutombo told the Houston Chronicle he agreed to the deal Friday.

The Rockets have declined to comment on the reports.
