Morris to Suns, TRob to Rockets. Patterson to Kings.

Details are still being worked out but here is what is known for now.

Thomas Robinson has gone to the Rokets.

Marcus Morris has joined his brother with the Suns.

The Suns have given up a 2nd round pick. Unsure of where it is going.

Cole Aldrich, Patrick Patterson, and Toney Douglas will head to the Kings.

Great pick up for Houston,

Great pick up for Houston, especially if all they gave up was Morris. What do you think the suns gave up/Kings got?

Ummmm I am hoping the Rockets

Ummmm I am hoping the Rockets didn't just give up Morris, Patterson, Aldrich, and Douglas for Robinson. I am assuming that pick goes to Houston or else they are giving up Morris for nothing. Interested to see the final details though.

I seriously don't understand what Sacramento is doing.they re giving their 5th pick for scrubs or something?Houston did a great deal if you ask me and they added a great weapon to their young nucleus plus a second round pick

Patterson paired back with

Patterson paired back with Cousins, I like. Let's see what Robinson can do as the only post scorer for Houston.

Robinson's not a post scorer

Robinson's not a post scorer though.
They want defense and rebounding. Hopefully Robinson can help in those areas.

What are the Kings doing

What are the Kings doing making trades? They probably won't even have a team soon. Shocked they'd trade a top five pick.

I could be way off on this

I could be way off on this but I see it as a move to please Cousins, meaning that they will make the future of their franchise.

I havent heard any rumors to support that statement. You now Cousins would rather have Patterson than Robinson because Robinson thinks he is a franchise player. Patterson knows his role in the NBA and already has previous chemisrty with Cousins from Kentucky..

I may be way wrong but thats just what I think.

Wow T-Rob was the last person

Wow T-Rob was the last person I would have been expected to get traded. Was expecting Evans. Why make this move though? Seems like they just made a trade just for the sake of it....

Yeah I don't like teams

Yeah I don't like teams giving up on top 5 picks this early, but maybe they thought Cousins and Robinson would never work. At least Patterson would give Cousins the spacing to operate. Maybe Cousins and Patterson are buddies too since they played together at UK. From the Kings' perspective, it looks like a chemistry/fit move.

Moving your 5th pick before

Moving your 5th pick before the end of the season seems insane! I feel bad for T-Rob in one sense, but happy that McHale might be a better mentor than he had in Sac Town.

I mean feel bad in the sense that you would from getting traded so early in your career. I completely agree he'll be better off in Houston, no question.

I wouldn't say right away. He

I wouldn't say right away. He might take Delfino's place eventually so as they don't play too small, I don't see them benching Parsons though. He would do well as a 6th man for the time being till he's comfortable with the system.

T-Rob

If this deal goes through he should be happy that he is getting out of the Kings organization. He is going to play for a good coach and great mentor in McHale. I have no idea what the Kings are doing. I would like to see the brothers together balling in Phoenix.

But seriously can someone explain to me what the Kings are doing?

If i had to take a guess the

If i had to take a guess the wanted to dump salary. They traded away 12 mil owed to Garcia over next 2 years, T-Rob's rookie contract, and Honeycutt as a throw in for 3 expiring deals. So basically the Maloofs being the Maloofs.

What is Sacramento doing?

I'm not even close to being a Kings fan, but what in the hell are they doing? I don't care how well Patrick Patterson has been playing this season, Robinson was the number two scouted player eight months ago. Maybe his slow start in the pros had something to do with: a) playing with DeMarcus Cousins, b) backing up Jason Thompson and, c) playing in a losing culture.

Seriously, watch this guy be shaped by Harden and play for a better franchise and become an all star.

As a Suns fan I just find it funny to reunite the brothers, we aren't going anywhere anytime soon so why not. It'll make Thanksgiving and Christmas that much easier next year.

As a suns fan I hope this is just the begining of trades to get younger and draft picks (even though here they gave up one but considering Marcus was the 14th pick just 2 years ago its not bad)

Worse trade possible for the

Worse trade possible for the Kings? They basically traded a top 5 pick for Patterson. I love Patterson, but for a top 5 pick on a rookie deal? It's not like Robinson is a bust or anything? I wouldn't expect anything much out of a player on the Kings. Look at the potential of Cousins and how poorly he plays at times. Ridiculous trade. Seems like someone should have swooped in and stole Robinson from the Kings already if thats all they wanted.

I'm sorry, but Robinson wasn't exactly setting the world on fire. Not sure what everyone is all up in arms about.

Kevin McHale so far has got Harden, Lin, Asik, second round steal in Parsons and now T-Rob. If Royce White works out McHale is a genius....
