Trade: Theo Maledon traded from Thunder to Rockets

A few days after the start of the “training camp”, the Rockets and the Thunder decided to carry out one of the largest exchanges of the year. No less than eight players are thus involved in this transfer, including the French Theo Maledonsilver medalist at the last European championship.

Here’s what it looks like according to the Houston Chronicle:

Houston : arrivals of Theo Maledon, Derrick Favors, Moe Harkless, Ty Jerome and a second round of the 2025 Draft.

Oklahoma City : arrivals of Sterling Brown, David Nwaba, Trey Burke and Marquese Chriss.

Théo Maledon will therefore find himself in Houston as an understudy for Kevin Porter Jr, and even if he is a real playmaker, it will be difficult to find playing time behind the whimsical back of the Rockets, considered one of the players leaders of the group, with competition from rookie TyTy Washington Jr. For their part, Derrick Favors and Moe Harkless bring experience to a group that really needs it.

Sterling Brown, Trey Burke and Marquese Chriss, who arrived from Dallas on the Christian Wood swap this summer, are already packing their bags. Same thing on the Thunder side for Moe Harkless who had just arrived as “medical joker”.

Finally, note that the Rockets and the Thunder each have 18 players under guaranteed contract and that the two clubs will therefore have to cut three players by the start of the regular season.
