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.

The Cavaliers are expected to have one of the better teams entered in the Las Vegas Summer League, which starts on July 11. As expected, David Blatt will coach the team. The roster includes current Cavs players Anthony Bennett, Matthew Dellavedova, Carrick Felix, Sergey Karasev and Scotty Hopson. Also on the team are the Cavs’ two draft picks, Kansas swingman Andrew Wiggins (No. 1 overall) and Virginia swingman Joe Harris (33rd overall). The Cavs will play three preliminary round games, all broadcast live on NBA TV, before being seeded in the summer league tournament. Morning Journal

When Scotty Hopson learned the Cavaliers were offering him about $1.4 million for 17 days of work, he reacted as anyone in his position would. “I was ecstatic,” he said. “I rushed immediately to get here.” It’s easy to see why. He never made $1 million in any of his years playing overseas. Hopson’s deal has left agents and opposing executives scratching their heads. The logic behind the Cavs’ move is understandable. By structuring his contract this way, they were able to tack on a nonguaranteed year for next season at about $1.4 million, creating extra flexibility during the summer trading season. Only they spent about $1.3 million more than necessary. Akron Beacon Journal
