Houston has struggled to replace the void left by Trevor Ariza and Shumpert is a player with championship experience from his time playing with LeBron James and the Cavs.

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

The Kings acquired Burks from the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday in a three-team trade that sent Iman Shumpert to the Houston Rockets. Both players joined the Cavaliers two days earlier in a trade that sent Rodney Hood to the Portland Trail Blazers. The Kings will get a second-rounder and Alec Burks from the Cavs, while the Rockets bring in Shumpert and clear a roster spot for the buyout market. 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.

This is the second reported move the Rockets have made before Thursday's deadline.

As a fun twist to this trade, the Rockets were in Sacramento to play the Kings as the trade materialized, with Shumpert down the hallway from his new teammates. Burks averaged 11.6 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.9 assists in 34 games for the Cavaliers.

Some may wonder why Cleveland agreed to take on Knight's contract, but they're adding picks in hopes of building for the future.
