Cleveland and the Houston Rockets remained engaged late Tuesday on a deal that would bring Brandon Knight and the Rockets' first-round pick to Cleveland in exchange for Alec Burks, two league sources told The Athletic.

The Cavaliers will also send Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin to the Rockets in the three-way deal.

In return for Sacramento's starting small forward, the team received shooting guard Alec Burks from the Cavs, along with a second-round selection.

Shumpert is averaging 8.9 points per game this season while shooting 38.2 percent from the field and 36.6 percent from the 3-point line. Knight, 27, is averaging three points-per-game in 12 games this season for Houston.

It's a deal that makes sense for all parties involved.

Aaron Judge: I'll switch positions to make Bryce Harper a Yankee
Harper remains a free agent and is looking to command a lucrative, long-term deal that could reach $300 million over 10 years. As Heyman notes, it's getting late out there, and the Phillies still haven't gotten something done with Machado or Harper.

Houston had been looking for a 3-and-D guard since losing Trevor Ariza via free agency over the summer.

The Bulls and Wizards swapped a trio of former first-rounders, with Otto Porter soon to be sporting a Chicago jersey while Bobby Portis and Jabari Parker are DC-bound along with a 2023 second-round pick.

Burks has played in 34 games with 24 starts for the Cavs this season, averaging 11.6 points and 5.5 rebounds per game. This is the manuevering the Cavs need during their rebuild.

He also comes with an expiring contract.

Teams just keep pulling off deals before the National Basketball Association trade deadline.
