Trade Report: Stauskas, Baldwin Getting Moved Again

February 07, 2019 - 1:06 pm

A person familiar with the negotiations says Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin are on the move yet again, this time going from the Houston Rockets to the Indiana Pacers.

The deal was done largely to get Houston under the luxury tax threshold, according to the person who spoke Thursday to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because it is pending league approval.

It has been an eventful stretch for Stauskas and Baldwin, who started the week with Portland, then were traded to Cleveland, then Houston and now Indiana. And it remains unclear if the Pacers will keep them, meaning more moves for them are possible.
