The NBA trade market came alive once again on Thursday night as two Western Conference teams engaged in a deal, swapping several role players.
According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Oklahoma City Thunder agreed to trade away Derrick Favors, Ty Jerome, Moe Harkless, Theo Maledon, and a 2025 second-round pick via the Atlanta Hawks to the Houston Rockets.
In exchange, the Rockets sent David Nwaba, Sterling Brown, Trey Burke, and Marquese Chriss over to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The trade came as a bit of surprise, considering the Thunder are an organization that typically collects draft picks rather than dishing them out for veteran players.
But on Thursday, OKC parted ways with one of their many second-round picks for the future.
Per Wojnarowski, the Thunder will trade one of the three 2025 second-rounders OKC owns to the Rockets.
