Rockets trade forward to Bobcats for guard Bogans
The 6-foot-5 Bogans is averaging 8.7 points, 2.7 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.0 steals in 39 games with Charlotte this season. He has started nine games and scored 10 or more points 17 times.
But Bogans has missed nine games after a right knee sprain at Milwaukee on Jan. 21.
The move reunites Bogans with his former Kentucky teammate, Chuck Hayes. Bogans played in 135 games at Kentucky between 2000-03, averaging 14.2 points and 4.1 rebounds. He finished fourth on the school's all-time scoring list with 1,923 points.
In his pro career, Bogans has averaged 8.3 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 186 games with Orlando and Charlotte.
The 6-8 Baxter averaged 3.6 points and 3.7 rebounds in 23 games with the Rockets. He signed as a free agent with Houston in September, after three NBA seasons with Chicago, Toronto, Washington and New Orleans.
