Kings Trade Rookie Thomas Robinson To Rockets In Three-Team Deal

iWaDn.St.4

As per Adrian Wojnarowski of Y! Sports, Sacramento Kings rookie and 5th overall draftee Thomas Robinson has been traded to the Houston Rockets in a three-team trade involving 6 players. The Rockets will acquire Robinson from the Kings, as well as Francisco Garcia and Tyler Honeycutt and a 2nd round pick in exchange for Cole Aldridge, Toney Douglas and Patrick Patterson plus cash considerations. Also involved in the deal, the Phoenix Suns who receive Marcus Morris from Houston in exchange for a 2013 2nd round pick. The Kings have moved over $10 Million in salary while receiving only $6.5 in return leaving them a considerably larger amount of cap space than they already had.

Robinson, drafted 5th overall by the Kings in the 2012 draft has played just 51 games for Sacramento, and has shown considerable amounts of promise throughout his time in Sacramento.  The trade deadline is less than 24 hours away, and ordinarily the world of basketball is crawling with potential trades and rumors however 2013 has proven to be quite the opposite with the Robinson trade being the single and only deal to go down.
