Houston looks to be bolstering its wing depth ahead of the trade deadline.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Rockets will acquire Iman Shumpert from the Sacramento Kings in a three-team deal that also involves the Cleveland Cavaliers, includes several players and a number of picks.

Both The Athletic's Shams Charania and Wojnarowski added that the reported deal sends Cavs guard Alec Burks to the Kings while Rockets guard Brandon Knight is traded to the Cavaliers.

Wojnarowski has also reported that Cleveland will send Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin, who were both acquired from Portland Sunday, to Houston in the deal.

The Rockets and Kings are set to tip off against one another tonight at 10 p.m. ET while the Cavs are back in action Friday when they visit the Wizards.

More to come.
