Houston Rockets acquire Iman Shumpert in 3-team deal

HardenBryant- Cropped

Houston picked up the two players in a deal that netted the team Iman Shumpert from the Kings.

The Kings will acquire guard Alec Burks and a second-round pick from the Cavaliers as part of the deal, as well, according to a report from Yahoo Sports. The Rockets gave the Cavaliers Brandon Knight, Marquese Chriss, and a first-round lottery pick, in exchange for Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin.

The Shumpert deal was announced before the Kings hosted the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night.

Knight, Chriss and the first rounder are headed to Cleveland.

Instead, the team visited Obama at his home in Washington, D.C., while on a road trip to play the Wizards. The Patriots hold the record for number of Super Bowl appearances, at 11.

Shumpert is the headliner in this deal and is a significant addition for the Rockets. Shumpert, known for his defensive prowess, has been hitting a near-career-best 36.6 percent of his career-high 4.8 3-point attempts per game. They also save about $6.1 million in tax payments this season and get off the $15.6 million Knight is owed next season.

The Cavaliers continue to stack up draft picks.

Just over a week ago, Chriss requested either more playing time or a trade from the Suns and it appears he has his wish.

Ennis has been a valuable reserve for the Rockets, averaging 7.4 points, 2.9 rebounds and a steal per game in 23.7 minutes per game. Shumpert is a free agent after this season, so they procure a pick rather than risk him walk away for nothing. General manager Koby Altman traded Kyle Korver for Burks and two second-round picks. They were rumored to have interest in Shumpert at the 2017 trade deadline.
