After much speculation the Rockets, Timberwolves, Nuggets, and Hawks completed a major trade.

Additonal players have been added since the intial announcement.

The Rockets have sought after Robert Covington for a few years now. He will provide the Rockets with a coveted wing who can also knock down 3-pointers. The Rockets are 9-1 without Clint Capela and had moved to a smaller starting lineup since Capela’s injury. In the deal, the Rockets also get former Golden State Warrior and now Timberwolve Jordan Bell.

Capela who is top five in rebounds and top 10 in blocks joins Trae Young in Atlanta. The Hawks have been looking to move John Collins to the power forward position and now with Capela, they can make that change.
