Cleveland Cavaliers complete three way trade with Kings and Rockets

With the trade deadline looming on Thursday afternoon, the Sacramento Kings, Cleveland Cavaliers and Houston Rockets just pulled off a three-team trade featuring several players and a protected first-round draft pick changing hands.

Both The Athletic's Shams Charania and Wojnarowski added that the reported deal sends Cavs guard Alec Burks to the Kings while Rockets guard Brandon Knight is traded to the Cavaliers. Houston will get Iman Shumpert in return.

In his first year with the Kings, Shumpert averaged 8.9 points, 2.2 assists and 3.1 rebounds per game.

Stauskas and Baldwin were acquired by the Cavs on Sunday in a trade with the Portland Trail Blazers for Rodney Hood. He's set to make $15.6 million next season. Randolph, who led the team in scoring average last season at 14.5 points per game, did not suit up during this campaign as the Kings moved forward with their younger players.
