According to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle, the Rockets inked rookie standout Gary Clark to a three-year deal and recently-waived Rocket Danuel House to a two-way deal.
Rockets reach agreement on a three-year deal with rookie Gary Clark, source close to Clark said. Rockets used the roster spot opened with release of Danuel House, Jr.— Jonathan Feigen (@Jonathan_Feigen) December 6, 2018
Danuel House Jr. will sign a two-way deal in time to play for the Rockets tonight against the Jazz tonight, source said.— Jonathan Feigen (@Jonathan_Feigen) December 6, 2018
Gary Clark was one of the team’s two recipients of the “two-way” G-League deal that allowed for 45 days of NBA service. The other contract was signed by Rockets draft pick Vincent Edwards. However, Clark’s strong play during the early part of the year earned him rotation time as he proved he was not a G-Leaguer.
As he gained minutes in the rotation, it was clear that the Rockets were going to sign him to a traditional contract during the season. And with the consistent play of Danuel House, the team was able to use the two-way contract that Clark had now vacated to sign House, the Houston native.
Clark is averaging 3.4 points per game this season in 21 games played. House played in Houston’s last five games, averaging 8.4 points per game.
