A person with direct knowledge of the deal said the Houston Rockets are trading center Christian Wood, their top scorer and rebounder this season, to the Dallas Mavericks in exchange for four players and a draft pick.

Boban Marjanovic, Trey Burke, Sterling Brown and former Warriors forward/center Marquese Chriss go to the Rockets, who will also receive the No. 26 pick this year, according to the person, who spoke to The Associated Press under cover of anonymity because the trade will not be finalized until next Thursday’s draft, the person said.
