The Rockets have signed Diamon Simpson, tweets Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle. The deal, which was first reported by Jarrod Waerea of NBADownUnder.com, will be for the rest of the season, with a non-guaranteed year for next season, according to Feigen (via Twitter).
Simpson, 24, was part of the Warriors' training camp in 2009, but was waived prior to the season. The St. Mary's product has yet to make his NBA debut, spending the last few seasons playing in the D-League, the Philippines, Turkey, and, most recently, Australia.
The 6'7" forward will take the roster spot vacated by Malcolm Thomas when Thomas' 10-day contract expired.
