Rockets Bring In Iman Shumpert In Three Team Trade

The Houston Rockets have agreed to a three-way trade that will send Sacramento Kings wing Iman Shumpert to Houston.

The Rockets will ship Brandon Knight, Marquese Chriss, and a protected first-round pick to the Cleveland Cavaliers, and the Cavaliers will send Alec Burks to the Kings as part of the deal.

Shumpert has started 40 games for the Kings this season, averaging 8.9 points. The 28-year-old also comes with championship experience, having met the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals four years in a row.

He also comes with an expiring contract. Houston reduces its luxury tax hit by clearing Knight’s salary, and does not tie up long-term money in this deal.
