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

Cleveland took on the remaining year of Brandon Knight's contract, as well as Marquese Chriss from the Rockets. Houston is on pace to break the record for most 3-pointers attempted in a season, something it did in each of the last two seasons as well.

Knight and Chriss were acquired by Houston in the Ryan Anderson salary dump over the offseason. The former North Carolina standout grew up in Houston and has appeared in 120 career National Basketball Association games (44 starts) since the Kings selected him with the No. 15 overall pick in 2017.

Burks, 27, spent his first seven-plus seasons with the Utah Jazz before the Cavaliers acquired him in November in a deal that sent Kyle Korver out west. Burks is averaging 10.6 points and 4.2 rebounds in 51 games (24 starts) this season.

The NBA trade deadline is Thursday at 3 pm. Burks' contract expires this summer.

James Harden extended his red-hot scoring streak as the Houston Rockets overwhelmed the Sacramento Kings on the road in the National Basketball Association on Wednesday, February 6 (Thursday, February 7, Manila time). The Cavaliers have Ante Zizic and Larry Nance Jr.at center, with Kevin Love potentially returning this season.

Shumpert joined the Rockets in Sacramento and is flying back to Houston with the team. He will be a free agent this summer. Shump is averaging close to nine points per game in addition to three rebounds and two assists. Shumpert is also a fashion guy - another reason why he should fit well with Chris Paul and James Harden.
