Rockets news: Houston looking to bring back Bobby Brown prior to trade deadline
After waiving him earlier this month, Bobby Brown’s NBA career is expected to continue with the Houston Rockets in a couple of weeks. It has been reported that the Houston Rockets could bring him back before the trade deadline on February 8th, according to Marc Stein of the New York Times.
Rockets whisper from tonight: Provided it has roster room, Houston is hoping to bring back veteran guard Bobby Brown after the Feb. 8 trade deadline

The veteran guard went undrafted back in 2007 but did not give up on his NBA dream. He took his talents overseas and played for Alba Berlin in Germany for two years before making it to the Sacramento Kings and Minnesota Timberwolves’ rosters, where he split time during the 2008-09 campaign. He has since bounced back from different professional leagues in Europe and the NBA, before signing with the Rockets last summer.
Brown appeared in 20 games this year, and averaged 2.5 points in 5.8 minutes of action. His potential return to the Rockets will give the team additional depth at their point guard rotation, and could even receive more playing time behind Chris Paul if head coach Mike D’Antoni decides to field in James Harden at the shooting guard spot full time.
It will also be interesting to see how active Houston will be ahead of the deadline. There are rumors swirling that they may make a move for another key piece which they feel will be a good fit and could further boost their chances of winning it all this season. The team could also opt to sign potential buy out candidates for a short-term deal which will not affect their flexibility this coming summer. All are just speculations for now, but it will definitely all unravel in the next two weeks for the franchise.
