The professional best friend won’t be at the end of the bench anymore.

According to Chris Haynes, PG Bobby Brown will be waived by the Rockets.

Gerald Green signed a non-guaranteed contract last Thursday and the deadline for the Rockets to guarantee any non-guaranteed deals is Sunday. With Green tearing it up for the Rockets this past week, scoring double digits in four of his first five games in a Rockets uniform, the Rockets will guarantee his contract.

With Green officially on the roster, the Rockets have 15 guys. However, subtracting Brown gives the Rockets an extra roster spot and flexibility to add another player that could be a legitimate factor for the Rockets come postseason time.

As Chris Haynes stated in his Tweet, the Rockets could bring Brown back if the team feels that he is the best person to fit that final spot. However, the extra roster spot is something that Daryl Morey loves to have because it allows him to be more creative and to give the team room to grow even further.

Brown said he’s open for a return to the Rockets, and as our professional best friend, we’d always be happy to have him back in Houston.

Brown has averaged 2.5 PPG this season in 20 games for the Rockets.
