Rockets re-sign guard Troy Daniels

Rocket re-sign playoff hero Troy Daniels to a 2-year deal.

The Rockets have announced their first official signing of the 2014 off-season, Troy Daniels. The Houston Chronicle's Jonathan Feigen reports that Daniels has signed a fully guaranteed two-year, $2 million dollar deal with the Rockets.

Daniels went undrafted in 2013 NBA Draft after his senior season at Virginia Commonwealth University. He was waived by both the Hornets and Rockets before the start of the 2013-2014 season, but Daniels found a landing spot with Rio Grande Valley Vipers. With the Vipers, Daniels lead the team in 3-pointers attempted (599) and 3-point field goal percentage (40.1%). The Vipers sharpshooter was named a 2014 NBA D-League All-Star team and All-NBA D-League Third Team.

Like many D-Leaguers, Daniels bounced between the valley and Houston multiple times at the end of last season. He appeared in five regular season games (one start), and posted 8.4 PPG/1.0 APG/0.8 RPG in 15 minutes per game.

Of course, Daniels is best know for his game-winning 3-pointer against the Trail Blazers in the opening round of the 2014 NBA Playoffs. After replacing Chandler Parsons (Who is that guy again? I think he plays for some team up north.), who had fouled out late, Daniels banged home a 3-pointer with 11-seconds left to win game three against Portland. Let's watch that shot again.

Still Great.

Sure, this isn't the type of flashy signing Rockets fans were looking for. But, it is a sign that the Rockets' developmental system is generating players that fit Daryl Morey's system. Now let's get ready for a full season of the Rockets' public address announcer calling out "TROY DANIELS FOR THREE....THREEEEEE....THREEEEEEEEEE."
