The Houston Rockets acquired Sacramento's Thomas Robinson, the fifth overall pick in the draft, in a three-way deal on Wednesday night, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
The Rockets sent Patrick Patterson, Toney Douglas and Cole Aldrich to the Kings, and Marcus Morris to the Phoenix Suns as part of the trade.
The Kings give up Robinson, the power forward out of Kansas, Francisco Garcia, Tyler Honeycutt and a future second-round pick to the Rockets, sources said.
Morris, the 14th overall pick of the 2011 draft, had started 17 games for the Rockets this season, averaging 8.6 points and 4.1 rebounds. Morris averaged 21 minutes a game for Houston.
