The NBA trade deadline passed Thursday afternoon at 2pm and true to form, Rockets GM Darly Morey makes a trade, but it's not a big splash.

Omar Asik is still a Rocket. So is Chandler Parsons.

But gone again is guard Aaron Brooks. Brooks was traded to Denver for forward Jordan Hamilton who played his college ball at UT.

It's the second time Brooks has been traded way, but he'll get more playing time with the Nuggets.

Hamilton gives the Rockets added strength at small forward.
