Cavs: Three takeaways from recently reported trade with Kings, Rockets

Cavs: Three takeaways from recently reported trade with Kings, Rockets

The Houston Rockets are acquiring guard Iman Shumpert in a three-way deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Sacramento Kings, league sources told ESPN.

According to Wojnarowski, the Cavaliers sent Alec Burks to the Kings, while the Rockets shipped Brandon Knight, Marquese Chriss and a protected 2019 first-round pick to Cleveland.

The Rockets will nearly assuredly waive Baldwin, but they acquire a veteran guard who can share some ball-handling duties with the second unit and, Stauskas could stick around and give them more backup guard help or could also be waived to open up a roster spot for a buyout player like Wes Matthews once the deadline passes. In Barnes, the Kings get a 6-foot-8, seventh-year player who is averaging 17.8 points and shooting 39 percent from 3-point range in 48 games this season.

Professor Aranda explained that individuals can also take steps to reduce their risk of lifestyle-related cancers. Millennials were almost five times as likely as baby boomers to develop cancer of the kidneys.


While the big news at the Golden 1 Center was supposed to be James Harden as the Kings try to win their fourth straight game in their six-game homestand. The Rockets made this deal to get Knight's contract off the books. He will be a free agent this summer. This trade allows them to flip some of their young players while receiving a first round pick in this upcoming draft. He had 10 points, three rebounds and an assist in 25 minutes before being subbed out with 3:11 left in the third quarter.

Teams just keep pulling off deals before the National Basketball Association trade deadline.
