NBA trade deadline: Rockets dealing Nik Stauskas, Wade Baldwin, second-round pick to Pacers

This is the third time this week Stauskas and Baldwin have been involved in a trade.

This is one of the shortest stints in team history.

The Rockets are trading Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin to the Pacers less than 24 hours after acquiring them in a three-team trade, according to ESPN.

 

Houston picked up the two players in a deal that netted the team Iman Shumpert from the Kings. The Rockets also traded Brandon Knight, Marquese Chriss and a first-round pick to the Cavaliers in that deal.

The Rockets will also send a second-round pick to the Pacers in the deal. Indiana will reportedly waive both players.

This is the third time Stauskas and Baldwin have been traded in the last week. The Cavs acquired them from the Trail Blazers for Rodney Hood on Monday, and now they’ve been dealt twice in the last 24 hours.
