Rockets Trade Jordan Hill To Lakers For Derek Fisher And Draft Pick

(SB Nation, Mike Prada) The Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets completed a surprising deal as the NBA trade deadline ended, with the Lakers sending longtime point guard Derek Fisher and a 2012 first-round pick to the Houston Rockets for third-year big man Jordan Hill, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. The first-round pick is the one originally owned by the Dallas Mavericks.
Fisher has been a mainstay on five championship teams for the Lakers, so it's hard to imagine him anywhere else. Nevertheless, Rockets general manager Daryl Morey completed a busy day by acquiring him and Portland Trail Blazers center Marcus Camby in separate moves. The Lakers, meanwhile, had less use for Fisher after acquiring point guard Ramon Sessions from the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Fisher, 37, is averaging just 5.9 points per game in reduced minutes this season. Hill is a former first-round pick in 2009 that has fallen out of favor in Houston
