Sacramento, CA, United States (4E Sports) – The Sacramento Kings will be sending point guard Jason Terry to the Houston Rockets for a group of players with non-guaranteed contracts to create bigger cap space and roster flexibility.

The Kings will also be giving away two second-round picks, one was obtained from the New York Knicks.

Meanwhile, the Rockets will be sending forward Alonzo Gee and players Scotty Hopson, Josh Powell, Jeff Adrien and perhaps Robert Covington to the Kings.

Terry was acquired by the Kings together with forward Reggie Evans last season, sending guard Marcus Thornton to the Brooklyn Nets.

Terry did not play a single game for the Kings and spent his time rehabbing a knee injury.

The 36-year-old also played for the Atlanta Hawks, Dallas Mavericks, Boston Celtics and the Brooklyn Nets.

Terry won a championship with the Mavs in 2011 and was a two-time NBA Sixth Man of the Year (2009 and 2011).

He averaged only 4.5 points, 1.1 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game last season.
