Sam Amick: Kings announce Houston trade that lands them Gee, Hopson & - last but not least - trade exception in exchange for Jason Terry & two 2nds. Exception, I'm told, worth $5.85 million and one of largest in the NBA. Third, perhaps, behind Minny's K. Love & Rox' Jeremy Lin exceptions? Twitter @sam_amick

Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey announced today that the team has acquired Jason Terry from the Sacramento Kings. In addition to the veteran guard, the Rockets will acquire Sacramento’s 2015 2nd round pick if it falls between 31 and 49, and New York’s 2016 unprotected 2nd round pick. In exchange, the Rockets will send forward Alonzo Gee and guard Scotty Hopson to the Kings. NBA.com

On the Rockets making inquiries on Dirk in the trade market: “I was like, ‘Are you kidding me?’ He asked if we’d trade Dirk. At first I thought it was taunting, but now knowing more about Daryl I don’t think it was in hindsight. That’s just not his style. It says a lot about their approach more than anything else. They just have a different understanding and approach to chemistry than we do. Some teams, and that’s not just the Rockets, just put together talent and the talent takes care of itself. We think chemistry matters. When Carmelo came to visit us, there was no chance that we were going to put him in someone else’s jersey number and put it on the outside of the arena. That’s not our style.” Dallas Morning News

On 'untradeable contract' Chandler Parsons: I was just offended that they didn't view me as that third star when I think I'm more than that. In all honesty, I have nothing but respect and love for them. They did this a year early when they didn't have to. I get why they did, to not let me get to unrestricted next summer. I've had nothing but great memories there. The entire organization, the fans in Houston were great for me. They believed in me initially and took a chance on me. I wish them nothing but the best. At the end of the day, it's a business. He had to do what he thought was best for his organization and I had to do what's best for my career. I figure it will work out for both of us.
