Rockets Sign Jerian Grant

11:01am: The Rockets have officially signed Grant, the team announced today in a press release. The veteran guard actually signed a two-year, minimum-salary deal, with a $50K guarantee in year one, per Keith Smith of Yahoo Sports (Twitter link).

The club also confirmed the previously-reported signings of KJ Martin (aka Kenyon Martin Jr.), Brodric Thomas, and Trevelin Queen. You can read more about those deals in our full stories on Martin, Thomas, and Queen.


10:00am: The Rockets and guard Jerian Grant have reached a one-year contract agreement, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Grant, 28, was signed by the Wizards in the summer as a substitute player after Davis Bertans opted out of the restart. He called it a “dream come true” to play for his hometown team, but averaged just 4.5 PPG and 1.5 APG in 13.3 MPG while shooting 25% from long range. He spent most of the season with the Wizards’ G League team.

The 6’4” Grant has averaged 6.1 PPG in 7.9 MPG during his career. He’s also played for the Knicks, Bulls and Magic after being selected in the first round of the 2015 draft.

    Houston may be a team to watch if the wrong reasons are counted! As in… who shows up?— will they still be winners? The roster has become less likable… There may only be room for one at a time of anyone I might want to see, from Westbrook, Tate & Nwaba. Clever Harden and brave Tucker may not even want to take the court. Cousins will entertain for a while. Cabloco may play center though I thought they would be signing more 5s. From link to nba.com

    There are two players with non-guaranteed contracts (Grant and Green), not counting Boogie who should make the team. Then they have two others with partially guaranteed deals, Caboclo and Tate (sounds like a good name for a cop show). To get under the hard cap they will likely need to cut one of them.

    All 4 of them will be competing for the final 3 roster spots, unfortunately Green may be the odd man out. He isn’t young like the other three, who all have higher ceilings, and they already have plenty of wings so there might not be room for him.
