Rafer Alston Traded to Orlando!

The Houston Rockets and the Orlando Magic pulled off a 3 team trade before today's deadline of 3pm eastern time. The Rockets sent Rafer Alston to Orlando in exchange for forward Brian Cook and Memphis Guard Kyle Lowry and Memphis will get Orlando's 1st round pick in this years draft. Kyle Lowry is averaging 8.6 points per game for the Grizzlies and Brain Cook is averaging 3.0 points per game in 21 games for the Magic Cook is a career 39 percent three point shooter while Lowry is known more for his defense. This trade was made in my mind to make Aaron Brooks the starting point guard for the Rockets. Good luck to Rafer Alston in Orlando where he should be the starter over there with Jameer Nelson out. The Rockets will face Rafer and the Magic on April 7th in Houston.
