JULY 29th, 5:05pm: The signing is official, the team announced.

JULY 13th, 10:50pm: The Rockets and unrestricted free agent Pablo Prigioni have reached an agreement on a contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports (Twitter link). It will be a two-year pact for the point guard, Wojnarowski adds, but the dollar amount of the arrangement is unknown at this time.

The 39-year-old appeared in 59 games for the Clippers this past season and averaged 2.56 points, 1.9 rebounds and 2.2 assist in 13.9 minutes per outing. His slash line was .374/.295/.875.

Prigioni becomes the only other true point guard currently on Houston’s roster and will serve as a veteran backup to starter Patrick Beverley.

    houston have two back up point guards, one the started and the other the back up wow

    • Beverly can be a solid starter…he just needs the right situation to justify him starting, which is exactly what he’s getting in Houston. With Harden there, Beverly doesn’t necessarily need to be the ball handler, just be a good defender and to hit outside shots. I personally think a better ball handler would be a more ideal starter alongside Harden (so Harden isn’t constantly turning the ball over) but Beverly is still a fine backcourt mate and the Rockets could do a lot worse there (like starting Prigioni).
