Kings Trade Shumpert to Rockets

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski was first to the news, reporting that the Cavaliers will get Marquese Chriss, Brandon Knight, and a protected first-rounder from Houston.

Cleveland will send Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin to the Rockets in the three-way deal.

The rapper/defensive guard will be joining the Houston Rockets in a deal between the Sacramento Kings, Houston Rockets, and Cleveland Cavaliers. The Kings sent Iman Shumpert (who the Cavs actually traded to them at last year's deadline) to the Houston Rockets as well. He's also shooting 36.6 percent on 4.8 3-point attempts per game.

Rockets star James Harden is also excited to have Shumpert on the team because of his ability to play all over the court.

Knight was made available, in part, because of his hefty contract, which is paying him $14.6 million this season.

With the trade deadline coming up at 3 P.M. EST today, we will be sure to bring you all of the latest updates.

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.

The Cavaliers continue to stack up draft picks.

In Cleveland's fourth in-season trade, the team has now gathered two first-round and six second-round picks.

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.

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