Baldwin, along with Nik Stauskas, was traded to the Pacers on Thursday in exchange for a second-round pick and will be waived, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
This appears to be nothing more than the Pacers helping the Rockets clear salary and taking on a second-round pick in the process. This is now the third time in the last four days that Baldwin has been traded, and now with the point guard being waived, he may be headed for the G League full time, where he has been stellar, averaging 22.7 points and 5.2 rebounds per game.
Baldwin was traded from the Cavaliers to the Rockets on Thursday along with Nik Stauskas as part of a three-team deal, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Houston also received Iman Shumpert from the Kings in the deal, while sending Brandon Knight, Marquese Chriss and a 2019 first-round pick to the Cavaliers. Sacramento emerged with Alec Burks and a second-round pick. Baldwin hasn't played much this season, averaging just 5.9 minutes across 16 games, and that seems unlikely to change with his new team, though the Rockets have yet to confirm their plans for the guard.
Baldwin (not injury related) will not be available Tuesday against the Celtics, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports.
Baldwin was dealt to the Cavaliers on Sunday in the deal that sent Rodney Hood to Portland. However, Baldwin will not make his team debut Tuesday and will have to wait until at least Friday against the Wizards.
Baldwin didn't arrive in time for the Cavaliers' morning shootaround and is uncertain to play Tuesday against the Celtics, Marla Ridenour of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
The Cavaliers acquired Baldwin and Nik Stauskas from the Trail Blazers on Sunday, shipping away Rodney Hood in the deal. Given that neither Stauskas nor Baldwin has had a chance to practice with Cleveland yet, it's unlikely that coach Larry Drew will summon either from the bench Tuesday as anything more than an emergency option. With the Cavaliers seemingly committed to giving lottery pick Collin Sexton plenty of run as the starting point guard, it's difficult to see Baldwin having a clear path to major minutes in Cleveland.

Nik Stauskas and two future second-round draft picks are also being sent to Cleveland in exchange for Rodney Hood. Baldwin hasn't seen much NBA action this season, playing in just 16 games, but has had a strong showing in the G-League.
