ROCKETS GET DEADLIER WITH WILLIAMS TRADE

The trade deadline is hastily approaching, and there’s another heavily-talked about name that found a new home.

Lou Williams has been traded to the Rockets for Corey Brewer and a first-round pick. Brewer was signed this offseason by the Rockets in their overhaul for more offense and hasn’t really produced to the level that he has before.

But Lou Williams has been a candidate for Sixth Man of the Year, and is scorching in scoring.

He will join a bench that already includes Eric Gordon, who’s in the Sixth Man conversation himself. They’re combining for over 30 PPG off the BENCH.

The deepest scoring team in the NBA gets deeper.
