Robert Covington is going to the Houston Rockets and Clint Capela is going to the Atlanta Hawks. Those are the headline moves in a complicated trade involving four NBA teams and 12 players. It was approved by the league late Wednesday night. The deal commits Houston to the small-ball lineup it has employed with much recent success. Capela was the only center the Rockets have consistently played this season. Houston could still acquire another big man for depth.
