The Brooklyn Nets and the Houston Rockets have agreed to a four team trade that includes The Indiana Pacers and Cleveland Cavaliers.
In the trade the Brooklyn Nets will receive James Harden and a 2022 second round draft pick, from the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The Cleveland Cavaliers will receive Jarrett Allen, and Taurean Prince from Brooklyn.
The Houston will receives Victor Oladipo, (Indiana), Dante Exum from (Cleveland) and Rodions Kurucs (from Brooklyn). The Rockets will also receive three unprotected first round picks (2022, 2024, and 2026). from the Brooklyn Nets. Plus the rights to swap 2023, 2025 and 2027 picks with them.
The move puts Brooklyn in a win now mode, and is very similar to the trade they made with the Boston Celtics in 2014, which many deem as the worst trade in NBA history.
