The Kings will get Cleveland's Alec Burks in return, as part of a three-team deal with the Rockets and the Cavaliers.

Furthermore, the Cavs will also send recently acquired players - from the Portland Trail Blazers trade from this past weekend - Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin to the Rockets. They were rumored to be offering Knight and a first as their primary package to do just that, and they banked those chips in this deal. He led the Mavericks in scoring each of the past two seasons, averaging 19.2 points in 2016-17 and 18.9 points in 2017-18. Barnes is shooting an impressive 39 percent from 3-point range. The Rockets are in the midst of a push for a deep playoff run and Shumpert's perimeter defense should lend a helping hand.

Houston acquired Knight, along with Chriss, in an offseason trade for Ryan Anderson. That means the Hawks will only receive a pair of second-round picks in exchange for Korver. Burks' contract expires this summer.
