NBA Trade Deadline: Houston Rockets Acquire Hasheem Thabeet, Goran Dragic
The Rockets made multiple deals today, changing the roster at the trade deadline.
Houston sent fan favorite Shane Battier and Ish Smith to the Memphis Grizzlies for Hasheem Thabeet and a first round pick.
Thabeet is more of a long-term project because of his struggles in his time at Memphis. He was the #2 overall pick in the 2009 NBA draft.
According to sources, the key to the deal was the first round pick they acquired.
The 7-foot-3 Thabeet will look to actually use his potential and maybe a change of scenery is a good thing.
For the season, Thabeet has averaged 1.2 points and 1.7 rebounds per game; poor numbers for someone drafted that high.
In a separate deal with the Suns, the Rockets acquired a lottery protected first round pick and Goran Dragic, while shipping out Aaron Brooks.
The 24 year-old Dragic has had his moments with the Suns and could be a capable backup to Kyle Lowry.
