Rockets Acquire Iman Shumpert, Kings Get Alec Burks In Three-Way Trade

Sacramento received guard Alec Burks and a second-round pick from the Cavaliers, with Cleveland getting Brandon Knight, Marquese Chriss and a 2019 lottery-protected pick from Houston.

Cleveland will also send small forward and shooting guard Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin to the Rockets in this three-way deal.

Having started 40 games, he was the team's primary perimeter defender.

Shumpert is a career 39 percent 3-point shooter, which will be valued by the Rockets. The Rockets are in the midst of a push for a deep playoff run and Shumpert's perimeter defense should lend a helping hand.

Houston acquired Knight, alongside Chriss, this offseason in a trade for Ryan Anderson.

The Cavaliers continue to stack up draft picks.

The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the National Basketball Association trade call has not yet been completed. Burks' contract expires this summer. The Kings will also get the Rockets' 2020 second-round pick. Playing time could be tough to find in Cleveland, too.

Shams Charania of The Athletic was first with the news. He will be a free agent this summer. He averaged just under 10 points per game with the Kings this season.

Shumpert joined the Rockets in Sacramento and is flying back to Houston with the team.

Gerald Green added 25 from the bench while starters Eric Gordon (20) and Chris Paul (15) backed Harden with useful contributions.
