Iman Shumpert Traded To Rockets In Three-Team Deal

HardenBryant- Cropped

Furthermore, the Cavs will also send recently acquired players - from the Portland Trail Blazers trade from this past weekend - Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin to the Rockets.

The Rockets will send guard Brandon Knight, forward Marquese Chriss and a 2019 lottery protected first-round pick to the Cavaliers, league sources said.

James Harden extended his red-hot scoring streak as the Houston Rockets overwhelmed the Sacramento Kings on the road in the National Basketball Association on Wednesday, February 6 (Thursday, February 7, Manila time).

For a team still stuck in the early stages of what will likely be a lengthy rebuild, Thursday's 3 p.m. trade deadline looms as a reminder of what was and what could be. General manager Koby Altman traded Kyle Korver for Burks and two second-round picks. An eight-year National Basketball Association veteran, Burks has accrued averages of 9.8 points (.423 FG%,.358 3pt%,.771 FT%), 3.1 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 21.5 minutes per game in 416 contests with the Utah Jazz (2011-12 – 2018-19) and Cavaliers (2018-19). He's set to make $15.6 million next season. Here's hoping he moves the needle for this team.

Knight missed all of last season with a torn ACL.

Chriss has only played in 16 games for the Rockets, averaging 1.8 points-per-game.

Of course, since the deal isn't finalized, the Rockets could change their mind and seek to deal Knight to another team.
