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.

Bucks’ Giannis wants Curry, Middleton in All-Star draft
The All-Star weekend is just over a week away, scheduled to get underway on February 15 in Charlotte, North Carolina. I think it's going to be random.

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.
