Stauskas was first acquired by the Cavs in last week’s Rodney Hood trade. Two days later, Stauskas was sent to the Houston Rockets — part of the three-team deal involving Alec Burks. Then, prior to Thursday’s trade deadline, Houston shipped Stauskas to the Indiana Pacers, where he was ultimately waived. Because he was traded once more by Houston after his brief stop in Cleveland and then waived by another team, in this case Indiana, the Cavs were able to sign him.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have agreed to a three-team deal that sends Alec Burks to the Sacramento Kings in exchange for Houston Rockets guard Brandon Knight, power forward Marquese Chriss and a 2019 first-round pick, league sources told cleveland.com Wednesday night. The 2019 first-rounder is lottery protected, according to a source.
Storyline: Alec Burks Trade?
The Rockets had been dangling a first-round pick to get out from under Knight’s hefty contract for the last week and the Cavaliers, with approval from chairman Dan Gilbert, were always willing to take on money beyond this year provided it came with an asset. The Cavs are “thrilled” about their haul for Burks, according to one member of the organization who spoke with cleveland.com about the deal.
