Rockets Waive Brewer, Sign Troy Daniels

SATURDAY, 12:54pm: The Rockets have officially announced the signing of Daniels, per a team release. GM Daryl Morey also verified that Daniels will continue assignment in the D-League.

FRIDAY, 9:39pm: Brewer has officially been waived according to a team release. A person with knowledge of the deal says that Daniels’ contract is indeed a two year deal, according to Feigen.

8:51pm: According to Jason Friedman of Rockets.com (Twitter Link), the team has officially signed Daniels. He’ll remain with the RGV Vipers in the D-League.

3:23pm: The Rockets are waiving Ronnie Brewer to sign Troy Daniels, a source tells Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle (Twitter link). It’ll be a two-year deal for Daniels, though 2014/15 will be non-guaranteed, Feigen adds (on Twitter).

Daniels, who’s been playing with Houston’s three-pointer-happy affiliate in the D-League, is considered the best shooter outside the NBA, Feigen tweets, adding that it’s likely the team will send him back to the Rio Grande Valley Vipers on D-League assignment after the signing. He’s averaged 23.3 points and 40.8% three-point shooting in the D-League this year after having spent camp with the Bobcats and Rockets this past autumn. Daniels went undrafted out of VCU in June.

Brewer signed a two-year minimum-salary deal with the Rockets in the offseason, but he’s seen limited playing time, scoring just seven points all year in 158 total minutes. The eighth-year veteran’s salary will remain on Houston’s books for this season, providing no one claims him off waivers, but 2014/15 was a non-guaranteed year for him.

If Brewer is just as good defensively as he has been previously, he is also a candidate in Miami, though he cant shoot the 3 to save his life

I’m maybe the Bulls bring him back. We liked him, Thibs liked him, etc.

It depends on what the Bulls feel they want to do at those wing positions and how much time they want to give to Tony Snell, which I assume is more playing time than not. Otherwise, I see the fit back there

We’ll right now we’ve got Butler, Snell, and Dunleavy in the rotation for the wing spots, with Hinrich occasionally seeing minutes at the 2. I want to get Snell as many minutes as possible, but I can see Thibs getting psycho and demanding Brewer as depth for the playoff run he feels we have a shot at.

I could def see a fit in Miami though, especially with the resurgence of (bad) Beasley.

I wouldnt say that Beasley has been bad though. His rotations are still a little slow, but otherwise, I’ve seen improvement on the defensive end (though not enough to necessarily play him often, which is what we are seeing), and he is free scoring off the bench, especially when our shooters arent knocking down shots. I think he could potentially be a factor in an Indiana series if the Heat shooters have issues like they did last season

Depending on how long Butler is out with this rib injury I think the Bulls should strongly consider bringing Brewer back to Chicago.
