Rockets acquiring Victor Oladipo from Pacers after dealing James Harden
The Houston Rockets are acquiring guard Victor Oladipo from the Indiana Pacers in a four-way trade, per multiple reports.
The Rockets are receiving Victor Oladipo, Dante Exum, Rodions Kurucs, four first-round picks, and four draft pick swaps in exchange for James Harden, who will rejoin former teammate Kevin Durant on the Brooklyn Nets. The Pacers will land Caris LeVert while the Cleveland Cavaliers will get Jarrett Allen and Taurean Prince.
Oladipo was leading the Pacers with a 27.9 usage percentage, per FantasyLabs, but he may be the second option behind John Wall in Houston. Harden's departure opens up 29.8 percent of the offensive responsibilities. LeVert (30.7) should see a boost in Indiana.
