It's not hard to form a reading of Merritt's twitter that a trade is being completed or has been completed:
"Additionally, we've been active on player front as I noted last wk. I didn't realize that trades won't be announced until after cup though."
But it's also easy to interpret that the trade may not be very popular:
"keep in mind many moves aren't made in a vacuum. Often other deals are part of the thinking and announcement timing isn't aligned..."
So anyway, very soon after the thug Houston or spoiled L.A. win we may be saying hello/goodbye, perhaps bitterly.
