Rockets Complete Trade with Brooklyn
Posted: October 6, 2021 -- 10:35 a.m.
Wednesday morning, the Houston Rockets announced they have acquired a 2024 second round pick from Brooklyn along with forward Sekou Doumbouya (SEH-coo doom-boo-YAH) in exchange for cash considerations.
Doumbouya (6'8", 235) was originally the 15th overall pick by Detroit in the 2019 NBA Draft and appeared in a total of 94 games for the Pistons over the past two seasons.
However, according to ESPN's Tim MacMahon, the Rockets are expected to waive Doumbouya.

Doumbouya had a few bright moments (few and far between) in Detroit with the Pistons; however, Troy Weaver, Piston's General Manager, traded Doumbouya to Brooklyn which completed a full turnover of the Pistons' roster in just 16 months since Weaver was hired in Detroit.
In a related move, the Rockets have waived guard Khyri Thomas who appeared in five of the final six games for Houston last season.
