Rockets fans comment on a major trade

Houston Rockets fans are venting their feelings on a major trade announced Thursday before the deadline. According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Rockets took part in a three-way trade deal with the Los Angeles Clippers and Memphis Grizzlies.

Eric Gordon is now a Clipper, along with Danny Green. The Clippers also scored three second-round picks. Grizzlies received Luke Kennard. The Rockets received John Wall, who played for the team from 2020-22 before the Rockets bought out his contract.

It was widely speculated the Rockets would try to trade Gordon to a playoff contender before the deadline Thursday. (The Clippers are in 6th place in the Western Conference standings.) The question was whether the Rockets wanted picks or a veteran. The Rockets went for a five-time All-Star and 32-year-old former number-one overall pick to come back to Houston.
