Forward Marquese Chriss underwent surgery on his knee on Wednesday, the same day on which the Mavericks agreed to trade him to the Rockets, as relayed by Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.

Chriss is one of several players headed to Houston in exchange for center Christian Wood, as first reported by Shams Charania of The Athletic. The Rockets are also set to receive Boban Marjanovic, Sterling Brown, Trey Burke and the No. 26 overall draft pick.

Chriss, 24, is 6-foot-9 and appeared in 34 games after first signing a 10-day deal, then for the remainder of the season in January.
