REPORT: Rockets waive guard Danuel House
The Houston Rockets have waived shooting guard Danuel House. House only played five games with the Rockets this season, averaging 8.4 points and 2.8 rebounds per game in a little over 21 minutes. Houston signed House out of the G-League on November 26th when the team needed some help off the bench.
Being only 25, it seems like House has boasted his ability to get signed by another NBA team in the new future. He has been in the league for three seasons playing with the Washington Wizards, the Phoenix Suns and most recently with the Houston Rockets.
While it’s hard to predict the meaning behind this move, especially for a team struggling with depth, that they think they want to give more minutes to another player, or they do not feel that Danuel House’s services are needed right now. If another NBA team doesn’t pick House up he will probably join a team in the G- League, where he can get a good number of minutes to showcase his talent and could have an opportunity to shine and make a case for an NBA team to sign him.
He only shot 39 percent from the field and 27 percent on three point shots for the Rockets this year. Those numbers aren’t very good, and Houston may want to give his minutes to someone who has a higher three point percentage as they are an up-tempo offense that shoots a lot of long range shots.
