ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski was first to the news, reporting that the Cavaliers will get Marquese Chriss, Brandon Knight, and a protected first-rounder from Houston. Knight, 27, is averaging three points-per-game in 12 games this season for Houston.

Houston acquired Knight, along with Chriss, in an offseason trade for Ryan Anderson. The Cavaliers are all-in on acquiring assets, now having acquired seven draft picks - in addition to players - in separate trades involving Rodney Hood, Kyle Korver, Sam Dekker, George Hill and Alec Burks.

According to The Athletic's Shams Charania, the Kings will also be getting a second-round pick from Cleveland.

Chriss has only played in 16 games for the Rockets, averaging 1.8 points-per-game. Shumpert is a free agent after this season, so they procure a pick rather than risk him walk away for nothing. He started 40 games for the Kings this season, averaging 8.9 points and 3.1 rebounds per game for the team.
