Here's what the Rockets did before the National Basketball Association trade deadline

Kings send Iman Shumpert to Rockets in 3-team trade with Cavs

SACRAMENTO -Two people with knowledge of the deal tell the Associated Press that Houston, Sacramento and Cleveland are finishing a trade that will most notably send Iman Shumpert from the Kings to the Rockets.

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

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.

James Harden echoed Paul's excitement over the addition of Shumpert and praised the Rockets for being active before the trade deadline.

Shumpert is a career 39 percent 3-point shooter, which will be valued by the Rockets. Sacramento also picked up a 2020 second-round draft pick from Houston. Both guards were acquired on Sunday during the team's trade with the Trail Blazers around Rodney Hood.

The Kings, who gave up Shumpert, will receive guard Alec Burks from the Cavaliers in the deal.

The move will likely lead to Bogdan Bogdanovic sliding into the starting backcourt next to De'Aaron Fox and Buddy Hield, with Burks coming off the bench for an added scoring punch.

The 23-year-old Jackson has played in 52 games with three starts for the Mavericks this season, averaging 6.7 points per game.

Burks averaged 11.4 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.9 assists since joining the Cavaliers in November.
