What a strange turn of events. Composite image by Jack Brame.

The NBA trade deadline is upon us, and it's been a busy one to say the least. Now the Rockets are getting in on the action. According to multiple reports, the Rockets are completing a three-team trade, sending Eric Gordon to the Clippers and receiving John Wall and Danny Green in return. Yes, you read that correctly.

Wall made some critical comments about the Rockets recently, so that could make things a bit uncomfortable. However, the Rockets are expected to buy out John Wall, per sources.

The Rockets will also have the rights to swap the Bucks first round pick, which they already own from the PJ Tucker trade, with the Clippers first pick in 2023. Which as of now would essentially be a ten pick jump for the Rockets in the first round. Plus, they acquired two future second round picks.

In his seven years with the Rockets, Gordon averaged 15.7/PPG over 379 games.
