SACRAMENTO (AP) — The Houston Rockets have acquired guard Jason Terry from the SacramentoKings for two second-round draft picks and guard/forward Alonzo Gee.
The Kings also received guard Scotty Hopson and a trade exception from Houston in the deal announced Wednesday.
The 37-year-old Terry started last season with Brooklyn and averaged only 4.5 points in 35 games. He was moved to Sacramento at the trade deadline and didn’t play the rest of the season as he recovered from a left knee injury.

Braun also added two points (one goal, one assist) in seven Stanley Cup playoff games.
