The Rockets are converting the contract of three-point shooting specialist Armoni Brooks to a two-way deal, writes Jonathan Feigen of The Houston Chronicle. The move is official, according to NBA.com’s transactions log. To make room, Houston has waived Tyler Bey, who was occupying one of the team’s two-way slots.
Brooks has been a consistent weapon all preseason, averaging 10 points per game and shooting 56.2% from the field. He poured in 15 points in the fourth quarter of Monday’s game at Toronto. Brooks signed a two-way deal with Houston in April and averaged 11.2 PPG over the final 20 games of the season.
Bey signed an Exhibit 10 deal with the Rockets in August, then was waived September 18 when Houston re-signed Dante Exum. He was brought back on a two-way deal eight days later. Bey, who was with the Mavericks last season, saw action in just one of Houston’s preseason games.
