Rockets Trade Thomas Robinson to Portland
After a subpar rookie season, the Rockets sent Thomas Robinson to the Trail Blazers for two future second-round draft picks and the rights to European players Kostas Papanikolaou and Marko Todorovic.
John’s Take: Why is this considered one of the biggest offseason moves? In addition to trading Robinson, the Rockets waived Aaron Brooks and Carlos Delfino, clearing cap space to make a push for Dwight Howard. The Rockets now have the ability to offer Howard a four-year, $88 million contract. (AP Photo/Bob Levey)
