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

The Kings still are looking to gain roster flexibility by trading one or more of their power forwards and possibly dealing guard Jason Terry, who has said he would prefer not to play in Sacramento. The Kings say they have no plans to buy out Terry, who is due $5.45 million this season. Meanwhile, the Kings are trying to avoid paying the luxury tax and will continue to look for ways to shed salary to stay below the tax line of $76.829 million. Sacramento Bee

The Kings are still looking for a power forward. The team inquired about Detroit’s Josh Smith again while in Las Vegas. The Kings aren’t content with their collection of power forwards and would like to move a contract or two to bring in a better complement to Cousins. That would be an athletic shot blocker or a big man who can shoot from long range. Sacramento Bee

Sacramento had made calls about Smith in June, but Detroit never heard an offer that remotely interested them and never seriously engaged in discussions, sources told Yahoo Sports. Since his hiring in the spring, Van Gundy has had productive discussions with Smith and sources say that Smith has been enthusiastic about moving forward with Van Gundy as coach. Yahoo! Sports
