"House is averaging 17.5 points and 6.3 rebounds in 15 games with the Vipers," Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reported. "He averaged 16.8 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.2 assists in five games with the Rockets summer league team and signed a training camp deal with the Warriors, but did not make the team."

Neither Charania nor Feigen have reported terms of a contract, though it just may be a call-up. The Vipers are the Rockets' minor-league affiliate.

House is 6-foot-6 and went undrafted out of Texas A&M in 2016.

He appeared in one game with the Washington Wizards in 2016-17, then 24 last season with the Phoenix Suns,. House has played a total of 57 games in the G-League with Rio Grande Valley, Northern Arizona and Delaware.
