Sports California has confirmed that Sacramento traded veteran Iman Shumpert to the Houston Rockets as part of a three-way deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

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.

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.

Democrats HATE That Trump Called Them a Bunch of Socialists
But then, even while the president may have to win over some unconvinced voters in 2020, he also will have to hold onto his base. Throughout the 35-day shutdown, Trump made multiple attempts to convince Democrats and the public of the need for a border wall.

Today is the National Basketball Association trade deadline so it only makes sense that National Basketball Association general managers have been active when it comes to making deals. Oddly enough, both sides got rid of what they acquired in that trade, as Houston is jettisoning Knight and Chriss, while Phoenix traded Anderson to Miami on Wednesday. An eight-year National Basketball Association veteran, Burks has accrued averages of 9.8 points (.423 FG%,.358 3pt%,.771 FT%), 3.1 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 21.5 minutes per game in 416 contests with the Utah Jazz (2011-12 – 2018-19) and Cavaliers (2018-19). They also save about $6.1 million in tax payments this season and get off the $15.6 million Knight is owed next season. Here's hoping he moves the needle for this team.

Chriss has only played in 16 games for the Rockets, averaging 1.8 points-per-game.

Shumpert is the headliner in this deal and is a significant addition for the Rockets.
