Cavs Nearing Deal to Send Alec Burks to Houston Rockets

Cavs Nearing Deal to Send Alec Burks to Houston Rockets

In 48 starts for the Mavericks this season, Barnes has averaged 17.8 points and 4.3 rebounds per game. Chriss played collegiately at the University of Washington and was originally selected with the eighth overall pick by the Sacramento Kings in the 2016 NBA Draft before having his draft rights traded to Phoenix that night.

The Kings will get Cleveland's Alec Burks in return, as part of a three-team deal with the Rockets and the Cavaliers.

Before Thursday's deadline, the Rockets also sent James Ennis to the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for a second-round pick in 2021, according to reports.

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

Iman Shumpert is headed to Houston after the Rockets made a significant cost-cutting move, including a lottery-protected 2019 first round pick to unload the contracts of Brandon Knight and Marquese Chriss.

All three teams accomplished their objective with this multi-team trade - the Cavs traded Burks while his value was high, the Rockets acquired their 3-and-D player and the Kings added another offensive weapon as they look to continue their playoff push. 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. He's scrappy. He gets after it.

"Shump is a vet who can help us - defensively, ballhandling, shooting", Harden explained. "He is playing very, very well this season, so once he gets here, get a couple of practices in and let's go".

Meanwhile, Kings center Willie Cauley-Stein said Shumpert's personality and presence will be missed in the Sacramento locker room. The energy, it was done.
