The Houston Rockets, Atlanta Hawks, Minnesota Timberwolves and Denver Nuggets have agreed to a multi-player trade that includes Clint Capela and Juancho Hernangomez, among other players, and draft picks, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The four-team deal sends Robert Covington and Jordan Bell to Houston; Capela and Nene to Atlanta; Malik Beasley, Hernangomez, Evan Turner, and Jarred Vanderbilt to Minnesota; and Gerald Green, Noah Vonleh, Shabazz Napier and Keita Bates-Diop to Denver.

As part of the deal, the Timberwolves receive a 2020 first-round pick from Atlanta via the Brooklyn Nets, and the Nuggets get a first-round pick from Houston.

Capela, 25, had been the most valuable trade asset available on the Rockets‘ roster. He makes $14.9 million this year and has successive seasons paying him $16 million, $17.1 million and $18.2 million on the books.

He was averaging 13.9 points and 13.8 rebounds a game for the Rockets but recently has been sidelined with a heel injury.

Hernangomez, 24, had a limited role this year with Denver, appearing in 33 games and averaging 3 points and 2,5 rebounds per contest.
