The Houston Rockets continued their bevy of late-season roster moves today when the team announced that they were signing 6’7” swingman Cam Reynolds to a deal that would run through the team’s final two games of the year.

Reynolds played in just three games this season with the San Antonio Spurs, working on a 10-day contract back in March. He averaged just two minutes per game. Before that, his only other time in The Association came with the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2018-2019. He averaged 5 points, 1.6 rebounds, and 0.7 assists on 42.3 percent shooting from the field and 41.2 percent shooting from deep (2.7 attempts per) in 19 games played.
He went undrafted in 2018 and then signed with the Sacramento Kings as UDFA, but he was cut before the season started before hooking up with the T’wolves later that year.
He’s also spent significant time in the G-League, playing with affiliates of the Kings, Bucks, and Spurs over three seasons. He carries career G-League stats of 15.3 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 1.4 assists on 42.5 percent field goals and 37.2 percent from deep.
The numbers say he has nice three stroke, so we’ll see if he can showcase any of that here in these final two games, which have essentially become live auditions for training camp next year.
The Rockets used a hardship exception to sign Reynolds after converting Khyri Thomas, who was previously occupying the exception, to a multi-year deal.
