The Houston Rockets acquired 20-year old rookie power forward Furkan Aldemir from the Clippers and they sent cash to the Dallas Mavericks to complete their part of the deal. Aldemir was the 53rd overall pick in last night’s NBA Draft. He is 6′9″, 220 pounds. Aldemir averaged 20.2 minutes, 8.5 points, 6.6 rebounds, 0.7 assists and 0.9 blocked shots per game. The Rockets will have to wait on Aldemir for a couple of years, at least. The bigger, sexier parts of this deal were that the Mavericks dealt Lamar Odom to the Clippers, Mo Williams was dealt from the Clippers to the Jazz and the Mavericks got a huge trade exception in this huge trade.
