According to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle, the Rockets have signed Austin Rivers.
Rockets reach agreement to sign guard Austin Rivers, source said.— Jonathan Feigen (@Jonathan_Feigen) December 23, 2018
This deal does not come as much of a surprise as Rivers was waived by the Suns last week after a trade with the Wizards. Rivers was looking for a new home and with Chris Paul’s hamstring injury, the need for a guard has intensified.
Rivers, 26, spent parts of three seasons as a teammate of Chris Paul’s in Los Angeles with the Clippers.
This season, Rivers is averaging 7.2 points per game in a reduced role with the Wizards. Perhaps another change of scenery will do Rivers some good and he can push the Rockets further into the right direction.
