Kings trade Jason Terry to Rockets
The Sacramento Kings today acquired guard-forward Alonzo Gee, guard Scotty Hopson and a trade exception from Houston in exchange for guard Jason Terry and a pair of future second-round draft selections, according to Kings General Manager Pete D’Alessandro.
Gee joins the Kings after spending four seasons with the Cleveland Cavaliers (2010-11 – 2013-14) following stints in Washington, Toronto and San Antonio. In 277 career NBA contests, the University of Alabama standout is averaging 7.9 points (.451 FG%, .329 3pt%, .773 FT), 3.6 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 24.1 minutes per game.
Undrafted out of the University of Tennessee, Hopson appeared in two contests for Cleveland last season before being traded to the Rockets during the offseason.
Terry, a 15-year NBA veteran, has accrued career averages of 15.4 points (.446 FG%, .379 3pt%, .846 FT%), 2.6 rebounds, 4.4 assists, 1.31 steals and 32.5 minutes per game in 1136 contests with the Atlanta Hawks (1999-2004), Dallas Mavericks (2004-2012), Boston Celtics (2012-13), Brooklyn Nets (2013-14) and Kings (2013-14). He missed the final 28 games last season while rehabilitating a left knee injury.
