Iman Shumpert Traded to Rockets from Sacramento Kings in 3-Team Deal

Share

The rapper/defensive guard will be joining the Houston Rockets in a deal between the Sacramento Kings, Houston Rockets, and Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavaliers, who announced the trade on Thursday, sent guard Alec Burks to the Kings and guards Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin and a 2021 second-round pick (via Milwaukee) to the Rockets.

The Cavaliers will receive the contract of Brandon Knight, Marquese Chriss and a lottery protected first round pick in 2019.

Knight and Chriss were acquired by Houston in the Ryan Anderson salary dump over the offseason. Over his seven-year National Basketball Association career, he has played in 394 games (320 starts) with Detroit, Milwaukee, Phoenix and Houston, holding averages of 14.9 points, 3.3 rebounds and 4.2 assists in 30.6 minutes per game.

ODNI has said the transcripts may be ready by May or June of this year. "They need it for evidentiary reasons in a courtroom". Republicans also sought to to subpoena a dozen officials, including Utah Rep.

The Cavaliers continue to stack up draft picks. The Cavs acquired them from the Trail Blazers for Rodney Hood on Monday, and now they've been dealt twice in the last 24 hours.

The initial move came Wednesday, when Morey got a deal done with Sacramento for forward Iman Shumpert. Playing time could be tough to find in Cleveland, too. However, the 27-year-old Knight had been a major disappointment for the Rockets, appearing in just 12 games and averaging just under 10 minutes per game this season. Shumpert is also a fashion guy - another reason why he should fit well with Chris Paul and James Harden.
