Kings trade Shumpert to Rockets in three-team deal

Kings send Iman Shumpert to Rockets in 3-team trade with Cavs

Houston completed a trade with the Sacramento Kings and the Cavs to bring in the guard, with Cleveland sending Nik Stauskus and Wade Baldwin to the Rockets in the deal.

The Rockets sent guard Brandon Knight, forward Marquese Chriss, a 2019 lottery-protected first-round pick and a 2022 second-round pick to the Cavaliers. He'll give Rockets head coach Mike D'Antoni a defensive option should they meet the better perimeter scoring threats - such as Kevin Durant and Paul George - in the playoffs.

Knight and Chriss were acquired by Houston in the Ryan Anderson salary dump over the offseason.

Burks was acquired from the Utah Jazz in November for Kyle Korver, with the Cavs also picking up a pair of future second-round picks.

The Cavaliers continue to stack up draft picks. 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. Burks' contract expires this summer. Houston will get Iman Shumpert in return.

In the case of Chriss, he's an expiring contract who will be a free agent this summer but will have an opportunity to show his worth while playing on the clearly rebuilding Cavaliers.

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.
