Just 30 minutes into the start of free agency, the Rockets have signed their two hometown fan favorites, reuniting the GreenHouse effect for another season.
House, 26, might have been the Rockets biggest surprise last season. House played his way off of a two-way contract into a full-time contract with the team.
House played in 39 games for the Rockets last season, starting 13, and averaged 9.4 points per game.
There were contract negotiations ongoing during the season with the Rockets and House, and there were disagreements in the beginning of the process. However, it has worked House into a contract that will keep House in Houston until 2022.
House disappointed in last year’s playoffs, working his way out of the rotation as he underperformed against the Warriors wings.
Nonetheless, it was a successful season for House and he deserves every penny of that contract Houston has given him.
Congratulations, Danuel House!
