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.

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.
