Nik Stauskas

Nik Stauskas

The Houston Rockets have traded the recently-acquired Nik Stauskas, Wade Baldwin IV and a second-round pick to the Indiana Pacers, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Pacers will reportedly waive both Stauskas and Baldwin after the deal is completed.

Ronan Farrow says National Enquirer tried to blackmail him too
A spokesman for American Media Inc ., publisher of the National Enquirer , didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. The National Enquirer published a story last month that included lurid texts between Bezos and Sanchez .

Stauskas, from Mississauga, Ont., and Baldwin started the week with Portland, then were traded to Cleveland, then Houston and now Indiana. On Feb. 6, Stauskas and Wade were traded to the Houston Rockets. ESPN first reported the trade. He's a microwave-type player who can get hot at a moment's notice and deliver good performances, but lacking size and athleticism.

National Basketball Association trade season is a highly stressful time for players as organizations try to make the most of their assets and build toward the future, but two former Trail Blazers have endured a roller-coaster week since being dealt to Cleveland on Monday.
