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).
Stauskas looked to be figuring things out playing for a winning organization in the Blazers and will likely be relieved to move on quite quickly from the Cavs to the Rockets. He's set to make $15.6 million next season. Shumpert is a free agent after this season, so they procure a pick rather than risk him walk away for nothing. In Sacramento, he averaged 8.9 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 2.2 assists.
Hazard to Reveal Decision "at the Right Moment"
Chelsea made a deal to sign United States Men's National Team and Borussia Dortmund star Christian Pulisic for $73.8 million in the summer.
Shumpert, 28, could become a key bench player for the Rockets as they pursue a deep run in the Western Conference playoffs.
In Cleveland's fourth in-season trade, the Cavs have now gathered two first-round and six second-round picks.
There is still time before the National Basketball Association trade deadline for the Kings to fill some gaps that Shumpert will leave behind.
Chriss has only played in 16 games for the Rockets, averaging 1.8 points-per-game.
