Rockets, Wolves, Nuggets, Hawks Agree To Trade Involving Clint Capela, Robert Covington

The four-team deal sends Covington and Jordan Bell to Houston; Capela and Nene Hilario to Atlanta; Malik Beasley, Juan Hernangomez, Evan Turner and Jarred Vanderbilt to Minnesota; and Gerald Green, Noah Vonleh, Shabazz Napier and Keita Bates-Diop to Denver.

The Hawks now have Capela to port in as the beginning facility together with young celebrities Trae Young and John Collins.

The league's trade deadline is Thursday afternoon. Covington is averaging 12.8 points, 1.7 steals and 0.9 blocks this season.


The Rockets are 10-1 in the games Capela has missed this season and have become increasingly reliant on playing small-ball lineups with 3-point threats surrounding superstar guards James Harden and Russell Westbrook.

Specifically, Minnesota has been unwilling to include their 2020 unprotected first round pick in negotiations, which is why they were looking to get involved in a three-way deal with Houston and Atlanta in the first place.

He was averaging 13.9 points and 13.8 rebounds a game for the Rockets, but recently, he has been sidelined with a heel injury. They could make trades that help on the court save and money, but Houston's assets would go further toward winning if trimming costs isn't also a priority.


Denver - currently No. 3 in the Western Conference - gets some flexibility as well, in part because it now won't have to decide this summer what to do with Beasley and Hernangomez. Atlanta will waive Chandler Parsons, along with his expiring $25.1 million contract, in order to create the necessary roster space to complete the deal.

ESPN and The Athletic first reported the trade, which was subsequently confirmed by other outlets, including the Houston Chronicle and Denver Post.
