Thomas Robinson traded to the Rockets
Per Adrian Wojnarowski
Sounds like its Patterson, Aldrich, and Douglas going back the other way.
Interesting trade, I like it for the Rockets though. TRob hasn't gotten a great shot in SAC...this will give him solid minutes on a playoff contender.
Lol Kings really. They screwed up by not taking Lilliard or Drummond now they compound their mistake by trading a top 5 pick for a bunch of role guys. Guess there's a reason why terrible franchises stay terrible.
Patterson and Cousins reunited from their Wildcat days
I have no idea what the Kings are doing. Great deal for the Rockets... They trade lamb early and halfway through the season they get T-Rob. They seem like they know what they are doing in Houston. This guy plays hard on every play and they are going to love this guy in Houston.
Yeah I'm not sure why you do this trade if your the Kings. Patterson has become solid, but he's still not that great to give up a top 5 pick for.
I don't get why the Kings did this trade ?
I'm a big T-Rob fan due to the wild weekend I had while staying in Lawrence when my friend was playing for KU. T-Rob took care of us and it was wild. Hope the change of scenery helps. He was a on the fast track to nowhere in Sactown.
The Hawk, The Cave, or Tonic?
The Rockets essentially gave up:
for James Harden and Thomas Robinson.
Nicely done, Darryl.
Jeremy Lamb from OKC is in this trade too ?
Oh, never mind. Lol
Cole Aldrich's has not turned into the player I thought he would, I didn't have high hopes but for being the 11th pick I thought he would have produced a little more.
Glad I am not a Kings fan.
This team is starting to look real good.
Projected starting lineup
1- Jeremy Lin
2 - James Harden
3 - Chandler Parsons
4 - Thomas Robinson
5 - Omer Asik
Morris was traded to the Suns.
I wonder if twins were ever teammates before in the NBA. I'm surprised the Rockets dealt him for a second round pick. They must've really wanted to open up some minutes for the young guys.
kansas days! they were team mates
I think he means "In the past, were there ever twins that were teammates in the NBA?"
Yeah only one other set. Dick and Tom Van Arsdale were teammates on the Suns in 1976-77
I can not wait until this whole front office is overhauled...
Maybe the Kings did it in hopes that Patrick Patterson can help keep DeMarcus Cousins from going crazy.
Timing of this trade is interesting. And the salary implication point towards a additional move.
I'm speechless, I think this was one last stick to the franchise as the worst moves its ever made. As a Kings fan I am saddened that Robinson is gone.
Kings should trade Tyreke Evans for Eric Bledsoe so they can try to remake that UK team lol
Once again, Houston proves its mastery at stockpiling midlevel assets and trading them up for fewer, more valuable pieces. The use of Patterson as a trade chip was cemented by the drafting of Terrence Jones and Royce White last year, and while I don't really understand the trade of Morris for only a second rounder (I feel like he could have been worth at least a conditional late first from someone), the acquisition of Thomas Robinson is quite impressive. Sacramento would have laughed this deal down this past June.
Hell yeah! I love Patteron, he's a good player but I think T-Rob's ceiling is much higher!
Only beef with Patterson is dude does NOT rebound as well as I thought he would.
I just looked up the profile of Robinson (right here @ nbadraft.net)
