The Rockets will fill one of their two-way contract slots for 2018/19 with undrafted rookie Gary Clark, according to ESPN’s Chris Haynes, who reports (via Twitter) that Clark and the Rockets have reached an agreement on a two-way deal.
The No. 56 prospect on Jonathan Givony’s ESPN.com big board, Clark didn’t hear his name called on Thursday night, but quickly came to terms with the West’s No. 1 seed following the draft.
In his senior year at Cincinnati in 2017/18, the 6’8″ forward did a little of everything for the Bearcats, averaging 12.9 PPG, 8.7 RPG, 2.1 APG, 1.4 SPG, and 1.2 BPG. He also posted an impressive .526/.435/.741 shooting line.
R.J. Hunter‘s two-way contract with the Rockets reportedly spans two seasons, so Clark seems likely to take Markel Brown‘s spot on Houston’s roster. He’ll likely spend most of his time next season with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, though two-way rules will allow him to be with the Rockets for up to 45 days during the G League season.
