Rockets Trade Capela, Acquire Covington, Bell

Toronto Raptors v Houston Rockets

The Houston Rocket have dealt Clint Capela to the Hawks in a four-team, 12-player blockbuster. The Rockets acquired forward Robert Covington and center Jordan Bell from the Timberwolves. Capela was averaging 13.9 points and 13.8 rebounds for Houston, but has been sidelined recently with a heel injury. The Rockets also included Gerald Green and a first-round pick to the Nuggets as part of the trade and also moved Nene as part of the deal. Green and Nene have not played this season due to injury.
