Rockets get James Johnson, Wayne Ellington, and Vince Carter

Hawks get Brandon Knight, Marquese Chriss, and Rockets’ 2019 lottery protected 1st rd pick

Heat get Jeremy Lin, Carmelo Anthony, and a 2nd rd pick (via Hawks)

Lin will probably be waived, Carter too. Hawks aren't in the Playoff hunt, might as well play out of the young legs. I have thought the Heat will be involved in a deal. J. Johnson is really bad money for the Rockets too, if they're giving up a 1st.

James Johnson gives the Rockets a starting 4 and adds defense.

James Johnson is worse than Knight, value and salary wise. He's way too long term and expensive. Rockets would never do that. I think Winslow alongside Johnson is adequate compensation with an expiring or little value in return to Miami for anything Johnson. Rockets get hosed here.
