Lakers make trade deadline deal with Rockets


NEW ORLEANS, LA - APRIL 08: Marcelo Huertas #9 of the Los Angeles Lakers is fouled by Tim Frazier #2 of the New Orleans Pelicans during the second half of a game at the Smoothie King Center on April 8, 2016 in New Orleans, Louisiana. NOTE TO USER: User exThe Los Angeles Lakers have parted ways with Marcelo Huertas, sending the reserve guard to the Houston Rockets according to a report from NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski. The Lakers will reportedly receive point guard Tyler Ennis in exchange for Huertas.

The move gives the Lakers added youth, as Ennis is still just 22 years old despite this being his third season in the NBA. Wojnarowski reports that the Rockets will waive Huertas, who is averaging 2.7 points per game this season.
