Houston picked up the two players in a deal that netted the team Iman Shumpert from the Kings. The Cavaliers are all-in on acquiring assets, now having acquired seven draft picks - in addition to players - in separate trades involving Rodney Hood, Kyle Korver, Sam Dekker, George Hill and Alec Burks.

The Cavaliers will receive the contract of Brandon Knight, Marquese Chriss and a lottery protected first round pick in 2019.

The Houston Rockets have finally made a trade, adding a guard-wing they have coveted for awhile. The Rockets acquired Stauskas and Baldwin from the Cleveland Cavaliers, who acquired them from the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday. He started 25 games for Houston this season. He's also shooting 36.6 percent on 4.8 3-point attempts per game.

Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni drafted Shumpert with the 17th pick in 2011 when he was coach of the New York Knicks.

In Cleveland's fourth in-season trade, the team has now gathered two first-round and six second-round picks.

In exchange for Barnes, the Mavericks welcomed Jackson, 23, and Randolph, 37, who has not played this season. The Cavaliers will also continue to look elsewhere as they seek to rebuild a team that now stands at 11-43 on the year.

Just over a week ago, Chriss requested either more playing time or a trade from the Suns and it appears he has his wish. In Sacramento, he averaged 8.9 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 2.2 assists.

The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the National Basketball Association trade call has not yet been completed.
