The Houston Rockets have traded PJ Tucker to the Milwaukee Bucks in a deal involving multiple picks, plus DJ Augustin and DJ Wilson. Rodions Kurucs will also head to Milwaukee. The news comes from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. As part of the deal, the Bucks will also trade wing Torrey Craig to the Phoenix Suns.

Tucker has not been with the Rockets since the All Star break after both parties agreed to find the elite defender a new home.

Rodions Kurucs, who landed in Houston as part of the James Harden trade will also be shipped, along with the Bucks’ own 2022 first round pick — acquired via the Cleveland Cavaliers — to Wisconsin.

The Bucks will also send Houston a 2023 unprotected first-round pick. Houston will be able to swap its 2021 second round pick with the Bucks first round pick, which is likely to land in the late 20s.

The Suns will not give up any players for Craig.
