HOUSTON -- Minnesota Timberwolves guard Gerald Green tells FOX 26 Sports he has been traded to his hometown Houston Rockets for guard Kirk Snyder and a second-round draft pick.
Looks like the Wolves are finalizing a deal that will send unhappy Gerald Green to Houston for 6-6 guard Kirk Snyder and a second-round draft pick. A third-year guard from Nevada-Reno, Snyder has averaged 3.8 points in nine games this season
Zgoda also writes that as of 2:45pm, the deal is "not really, truly official yet."
From Sporting News:
"It's like a dream come true. Never in my life did I think this would happen," Green told Fox 26. "I am on cloud nine."
Snyder, who has not been able to crack the Rockets’ rotation, said he would welcome a trade. He has played in only nine games this season.
Snyder is a good all-around athlete with a solid jump shot. He didn't appear to fit in Houston, having played in just nine games this season. He was a 2004 first-round pick who is about to join his fourth team, including Utah, New Orleans and Houston.
