According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Houston Rockets have traded Patrick Patterson, Cole Aldrich, and Toney Douglas for Sacramento Kings rookie, Thomas Robinson.  Robinson was the 5th pick in this year’s draft and was projected to go as high as even the 3rd pick. 
This is a great deal for Daryl Morey and the Houston Rockets who weren’t getting much out of the power forward position.  Now they have a young power forward with loads of potential.  Robinson was buried on the bench in Sacramento behind the likes of DeMarcus Cousins, Jason Thompson, and Chuck Hayes, but he should now average close to 30 mpg in a Rockets uniform. 

Robinson may even be the undisputed starter now that Marcus Morris has been moved out of Houston as well to be united with his twin brother in Phoenix.
