Rockets recall Gary Clark from G League
The Houston Rockets have recalled power forward Gary Clark from the Rio Grande Valley Vipers.
Jonathan Feigen of The Houston Chronicle reported Sunday that Clark played in the Vipers’ final regular season game Saturday night, but will return to Houston for likely the remainder of the year.
Clark, 24, helped Rio Grande Valley clinch a first-round bye in the G League playoffs – posting 13 points and 11 rebounds.
The Cincy product will now shift his focus back to the Rockets, where he’s averaged 2.8 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 0.4 assists in his rookie season.
The Rockets will make Clark available for Sunday’s matchup against the New Orleans Pelicans, though he may see limited minutes. Clark’s best game with the team came earlier this month, when he gave a 14-point performance on 5-of-9 shooting and five rebounds.
Houston’s currently 46-27 and third in the Western Conference standings after defeating the San Antonio Spurs Friday – playing through a James Harden 61-point performance.
The organization signed rookie point guard Chris Chiozza to an ROS contract Saturday to get up to 14 players on the roster. They are also reportedly planning to claim guard Jawun Evans once he’s officially waived by the Phoenix Suns.
