Rockets to convert Danuel House Jr.’s contract for remainder of season

Alas, House signs!

NBA: Memphis Grizzlies at Houston Rockets Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

According to sources, the Rockets have brought Danuel House Jr. back aboard for the remainder of the season.

House, 25, averaged nine points per game in 25 games with the Rockets earlier this season.

House has been training and playing with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers in the G-League ever since his 45 days of NBA service ended January 14.

House occupied one of the team’s two-way roster spots and played his NBA time through similar to what Gary Clark did earlier this season. When Clark’s 45 days of service ended, his contract was converted. That was not the case for House.

Fans had been clamoring for the Rockets to sign House, but the team was holding out until it got what they wanted. The Rockets offered House a multi-year contract, but he declined the offer after wishing to hit free agency following season’s end.

With this stalemate, House joined the Vipers, but now the Rockets are looking to convert his contract.

What do you think of the move, Rockets fans?
