Jared Cunningham To Work Out For Rockets

Jared Cunningham, a former first-round pick who spent time with six NBA teams, will participate in a free agent workout with the Rockets this week, tweets Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated.

The 28-year-old shooting guard hasn’t been in the NBA since he played a combined 44 games for the Cavaliers and Bucks during the 2015/16 season. He was also traded to the Magic that season, but was waived immediately. He has been overseas since then, spending one year each in China and Germany before playing for Basket Brescia Leonessa in Italy last season.

Cleveland selected Cunningham with the 24th pick in the 2012 draft and traded him to the Mavericks the next day. He also had brief stops with the Hawks, Kings and Clippers.

With only nine guaranteed contracts, the Rockets are looking for players who can compete for roster spots. They have 17 players headed to camp, along with the possible addition of Terrence Jones.

    This guy is so inconsequential that he’s also referred to as Joseph for some reason.

    The nine Rockets with guaranteed contracts form an exceptional 9-man rotation. The other 3 with partially guaranteed deals (Gary Clark, Hartenstein, and McLemore) will also make the team. Others with non-guaranteed contracts (like Anthony Bennett) may make the 15-man roster and end up being replaced during the season in the buyout market.

    No Faired? The manimal was a jewel last season. I guess they want to push Dr. Hartenstein, but that doesn’t leave much muscle inside.
