Free agent point guard Pierria Henry, who was attempting to make his NBA debut in 2022/23, will resume his international career with Baskonia, the Spanish club announced in a press release (hat tip to Eurohoops).
Henry participated in a free agent mini-camp with the Wizards in June and later competed with their Summer League team before signing with the Rockets earlier this month. However, his training camp deal with Houston was non-guaranteed, and he was waived before the season started.
The 29-year-old has played exclusively in Europe since going undrafted out of Charlotte in 2015, and he’s had a strong pro career as a 3-and-D player. Henry holds career averages of 9.6 PPG, 3.3 RPG, 5.1 APG and 1.6 SPG on .451/.351/.782 shooting overseas.
It’s a reunion for the two sides, as Henry won a Spanish League title with Baskonia in 2020. He also won a Turkish League championship with Fenerbahçe in 2022, and according to Eurohoops, Fenerbahçe retained Henry’s rights, but didn’t make him an offer.
