MILWAUKEE — A person with direct knowledge of the deal says the Milwaukee Bucks and Houston Rockets have agreed to a trade a day before the NBA draft.
The Bucks are sending the No. 12 overall pick and three players to the Rockets for the No. 14 pick and center Samuel Dalembert. The Rockets also get guard Shaun Livingston and forwards Jon Leuer and Jon Brockman in the deal. Brockman is a Snohomish High School graduate and a former University of Washington standout.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal was not yet official. Several media organizations reported the deal earlier Wednesday.
Dalembert has career averages of 8 points, 8.2 rebounds and 1.9 blocked shots per game. Center is a need for the Bucks, who traded Andrew Bogut last season.
