Cavs Nearing Deal to Send Alec Burks to Houston Rockets

NBA trade rumors: Rockets acquire Iman Shumpert, move Brandon Knight in 3-team deal

The Sacramento Kings traded Iman Shumpert to the Houston Rockets in a three-way deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Wednesday.

The Kings are receiving Alec Burks and a second-round pick from the Cavs as part of the deal.

In return, the Cavaliers will get Brandon Knight, Marquese Chriss and a lottery protected first-round pick from the Houston Rockets.

All three teams accomplished their objective with this multi-team trade - the Cavs traded Burks while his value was high, the Rockets acquired their 3-and-D player and the Kings added another offensive weapon as they look to continue their playoff push.

Cleveland is sending guards Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin IV as well as a 2021 second- round draft pick (via Milwaukee) to Houston. He's also shooting 36.6 percent on 4.8 3-point attempts per game.

European Union nations support Venezuela's Guaido as anti-Maduro bloc grows
Those who continue to violate the human rights of ordinary Venezuelans under an illegitimate regime will be called to account. They meet after European nations this morning made a coordinated announcement to recognise rival Juan Guaido as leader.

The Houston Rockets weren't likely to make a significant deal at the deadline, but the expectation was that last year's runner-up in the Western Conference would make a move or two to acquire some much-needed depth.

In exchange for Barnes, the Mavericks welcomed Jackson, 23, and Randolph, 37, who has not played this season.

The Rockets and Cavaliers were discussing a potential Burks trade for quite some time. He will be a free agent this summer.

Stauskas, 25, has averaged 6.1 points, 1.6 boards and 1.4 assists in 15.3 minutes in 44 games, all off the bench, for the Blazers this season, with a shooting line of 41.9/34.4/88.9.
