Charles Barkley is now a Rocket-man, having finally lifted off for Houston from the Phoenix Suns in a trade that had simmered all summer.

Under the deal, to be announced today, Houston will send point guard Sam Cassell and forwards Robert Horry, Mark Bryant and Chucky Brown to Phoenix. All four become free agents after this season.
