KJ McDaniels Traded at NBA Trade Deadline


KJ was traded from the Sixers to the Rockets just before the trade deadline. As a Spurs fan, I don't really like him going to the Rockets, and I worry if he will get the minutes he needs to develop on a roster with Josh Smith and Corey Brewer. On the other hand, this thread from the Sixers' fan blog speculates that the trade is a sign that KJ's rookie contract gamble is paying off, that he was in effect traded because the Sixers were afraid they wouldn't be able to match his asking price this offseason.
