5:24pm: The deal is expected to be for two years, tweets Feigen.
MONDAY, 5:14pm: The Rockets are finalizing the deal to sign Daniels today, reports Jonathan Feigen of The Houston Chronicle (Twitter link).
SATURDAY, 3:47pm: The Rockets are in serious discussions with restricted free agent Troy Daniels about a deal that would bring the guard back to Houston, tweets Shams Charania of RealGM. Daniels lacks much NBA experience, but he’s proven in his limited minutes and D-League stints that he’s a capable three-point specialist that fits the profile of a beyond the arc sniper that GM Daryl Morey covets.
Daniels stepped into the spotlight when he hit a go-ahead three pointer late in Game Three of the opening round in the 2014/15 playoffs. He’s played only 75 minutes of regular season NBA basketball, but he’s hit 40.1% of his three-pointers in the D-League, proving he can shoot with incredible accuracy.
Charania hears the two sides are working on a deal that should be completed soon (Twitter link). Bringing back the John Spencer client would certainly stand to help the shooting of Houston, which had the fifth highest team field goal percentage in the NBA last season.
