National Basketball Association trade deadline: Rockets dealing Stauskas, Baldwin

HardenBryant- Cropped

The Houston Rockets have acquired guard Iman Shumpert in a three-way deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Sacramento Kings.

Houston has struggled to replace the void left by Trevor Ariza and Shumpert is a player with championship experience from his time playing with LeBron James and the Cavs. 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.

The Rockets sent a first-round pick, Brandon Knight and Marquese Chriss to Cleveland and the Kings received Alec Burks from the Cavaliers as part of the trade.

In addition to Shumpert, the Rockets took on the contracts of guards Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin, who were both acquired from the Portland Trail Blazers earlier in the week.

Real Madrid confident of signing Eden Hazard with £100m in the summer
Kovacic, who is now on loan from Real Madrid , has already notched up 31 appearances in all competitions for Chelsea this term. Hazard has just 18-months left on his current Chelsea contract and is stalling on signing a new deal.

The Kings acquire a scoring option off the bench in Burks that could figure into the rotation as they look to make a playoff push.

There is still time before the National Basketball Association trade deadline for the Kings to fill some gaps that Shumpert will leave behind. "And somebody like that, I can play with any day of the week".

But even though Shumpert is feeling a type of way about being traded, there are a few team members excited about him joining the Rockets' lineup.

Barnes, 26, was on the court for the Mavericks as trade reports surfaced Wednesday night. The energy, it was done.
