Rockets Sign Bruno Caboclo

AUGUST 20: The Rockets have officially signed Caboclo, the team announced today in a press release.

AUGUST 17: The Rockets have reached an agreement with free agent forward Bruno Caboclo, Chris Haynes of ESPN tweets.

Caboclo became an unrestricted free agent when the Kings declined to extend a qualifying offer in late June. The 6’9” Caboclo was acquired by Sacramento in February in a trade with the Raptors.

Caboclo received an Exhibit 10 contract, RealGM tweets, giving him a chance to make the roster in training camp. He could eventually fill a two-way contract slot, since the Rockets waived guard R.J. Hunter on Friday.

Caboclo, still just 22, never developed as Toronto hoped when it made him the 20th overall pick in the 2014 draft. He’s appeared in just 35 games in his four NBA seasons, averaging 1.5 PPG in 6.1 MPG. He saw action in 10 games with Sacramento, averaging 2.2 PPG in 10 MPG.
