The trades just keep on coming.
Today is the NBA trade deadline so it only makes sense that NBA general managers have been active when it comes to making deals. Last night had a few trades, one of which was a three-team deal that sent Sacramento Kings player Iman Shumpert to the Houston Rockets. According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Kings received Alec Burks from the Cavaliers, which was the only piece they got back. The Rockets gave the Cavaliers Brandon Knight, Marquese Chriss, and a first-round lottery pick, in exchange for Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin.
While Shumpert is expected to have more of an off-the-bench role with the Rockets, players like Chris Paul are excited to have him on the roster as he adds some much-needed depth for a playoff push.
"I've known Shump for a while, man," Paul said. "He's scrappy. He gets after it. And somebody like that, I can play with any day of the week."
Rockets star James Harden is also excited to have Shumpert on the team because of his ability to play all over the court.
"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."
With the trade deadline coming up at 3 P.M. EST today, we will be sure to bring you all of the latest updates.
