Report: Houston Rockets re-sign Troy Daniels

Monday July 14th, 2014

The Houston Rockets have re-signed restricted free agent Troy Daniels to a two-year deal, according to a report from Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle

Daniels played just five games for Houston during the regular season, but hit a game-winning three for the Rockets in Game 3 of the team's first-round playoff series against Portland. In the playoffs, Daniels averaged 7.8 points in 17.0 minutes per game on 53.3 percent three-point shooting. 

The Rockets expect Daniels, who went undrafted out of Virginia Commonwealth, to provide shooting on the wing, especially after forward Chandler Pasons signed with the Dallas Mavericks. Daniels led the NBA D-League in three-pointers last season, with 240 makes. With the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, he averaged 21.5 points and 4.6 rebounds per game on 40.1 percent three point shooting. He made the D-League All-Star team and was named to the All-D League third team.
