The Rockets moving Robinson is no surprise since rumors have been swirling for a week or so that Houston would likely try and move T-Rob as part of their alleged plan to sign free agent center, Dwight Howard.
Robinson, who will be heading into his second season in the NBA, is heading to his third team in just a year’s time. The former 5th overall pick in the 2012 NBA draft has been moved from the Sacramento Kings, to the Houston Rockets, and now has been passed on to the Portland Trail Blazers as reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.
The Rockets will receive rights to Kostas Papanikolau and Marko Todorovic in the swap.
