AP source: Rockets trade Chase Budinger to Timberwolves for 18th pick in NBA Draft

HOUSTON

The deal brings in a veteran perimeter player that coach Rick Adelman knows well from his days as a coach with the Rockets. The person told the AP about the move on Tuesday on condition of anonymity because it has not been officially announced. Yahoo Sports first reported the deal.

udinger averaged 9.6 points and 3.7 rebounds and shot better than 40 percent from 3-point range in his third year with the Rockets last season.

Houston now owns the 14th, 16th and 18th picks in the draft, plenty of ammunition to make a bigger move on Thursday.
