Sacramento has traded forward Thomas Robinson to the Houston Rockets, league source tells Y Sports.
@sam_amick: Kings send T. Robinson, F. Garcia, T. Honeycutt to Houston for Toney Douglas, Cole Aldrich, Patrick Patterson & cash, USAT has learned.

T.Jones and T.Robinson and Royce White! One of those three have to develop it something. Lets go get Chris Paul. He has to look that this line-up and think twice.

Patrick Patterson (3.1 million) & Marcus Morris (2 million) would have both stayed on the books. Toney Douglas has a 3 million qualifying offer and Cole Aldrich's contract expired saving 2.5 million.
So in essence we got a top 5 pick in Thomas Robinson (who appears to be an excellent rebounder) and enabled the team to shave off an additional 4 million or so. Add to that 2 second round picks (Chase Budinger and Chandler Parsons anyone?). I'd say its an excellent deal.

Great trade. Although we'll be seeing more of Beverley.
Not necessarily a terrible thing. He is a young player at 24 who hustles. If you believe in Hollinger's adjusted stats, he has 14 pts/40, 6.6 rebounds/40 and 8.3 assists/40. But even if you don't, he has more upside than TD who probably wouldn't have been brought back next year anyway.

So Toney Douglas isn't good at all, but you would want him taking a roster slot during the playoffs? Interesting.
True. But he has looked lost at times, and while he has a greater upside than TD(who doesn't?), I don't think he's the better player right now and since we might be making a playoff run, it would have been nice to have TD. But, yeah, I don't think TD is good at all, though.
Expires after this year.
I can't imagine they won't trade for another PF who is a little older. How many years does O'Neal have left?
