The Rockets informed Corey Brewer he was traded to the Lakers following Tuesday's practice. "Yeah, I was surprised," Brewer said to ESPN. "I wasn't expecting to be moved. Teams are trying to makes moves at the deadline. (Houston) wanted another scorer and they made the trade. I respect their decision." Brewer's shot just wasn't consistent with the Rockets. He was averaging a career-low 4.2 points per game and despite shooting 50 percent from the field the past seven games, he shot just 28.9 percent in the previous 10 games. "If I was making shots, I would probably still be here, you never know," Brewer said. "I love Houston I don't want to leave but I have no choice. I hope my shots starts falling with the Lakers."

Derrick Rose was reminded on Tuesday that he's talked about how much he loves playing in NY: "It doesn't matter if you're on the trading block," Rose said. "I love it (here). But it's not up to me. It's up to the front office. I don't have a problem with the coaching staff. I don't have a problem with my teammates."
