The Houston Rockets traded Victor Oladipo to the Miami Heat for Avery Bradley, Kelly Olynyk and a draft swap, according to Shams Charania.

Oladipo ends his short stint with the Rockets who acquired him as a part of the blockbuster James Harden deal. Houston on moving some pieces after Christian Wood got sidelined with an injury and the team started to struggle big results-wise, going on a long 20-game losing streak.

Oladipo was an All-NBA player during the 2017-18 season with the Indiana Pacers but suffered a number of injuries afterward including the rupturing of a quad tendon that got him down for over a year.

In 20 games as a Rocket, Oladipo averaged 21.2 points on 40.7% shooting from the field and 32%from behind the arc.
