Four team deal? Capela to Atlanta, RoCo to Rockets
The Houston Rockets acquired the Minnesota Timberwolves' Robert Covington and traded center Clint Capela to the Atlanta Hawks as part of a four-team, 12-player deal on Tuesday night, league sources told ESPN.Source
One of the NBA's most expansive trades in nearly 20 years saw the Timberwolves acquire two first-round picks, including Houston's 2020 pick, which they moved on to the Denver Nuggets for guard Malik Beasley and forward Juan Hernangomez, sources said.
The Timberwolves keep the best available first-round pick in the trade deadline marketplace: Atlanta's 2020 first-round pick via the Brooklyn Nets. Denver gets Houston's 2020 first-round pick; the Nuggets are expected to be active offering it in deals to continue upgrading a roster that is third in the Western Conference standings.
Among the trade details, sources told ESPN:
Minnesota also acquires Atlanta's Evan Turner and Denver's Jarred Vanderbilt.
Denver acquires Minnesota guard Shabazz Napier, forward Keita Bates-Diop, forward Noah Vonleh and injured guard Gerald Green.
Atlanta acquires Houston center Nene Hilario.
Houston also receives Jordan Bell from Minnesota and an Atlanta 2024 second-round pick via the Golden State Warriors.
Atlanta is waiving Chandler Parsons and his expiring $25.1 million contract to create roster space to complete the four-team trade.
Seems solid for Atlanta?
Is this deal finalised? Some people are talking about adding a fifth team to bring a centre to the Rockets.
