Free agent Joey Dorsey has agreed to a two-year, $2 million deal with the Houston Rockets, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Dorsey, a 6-foot-9, 275-pound center, will play a backup role to All-Star Dwight Howard. Yahoo! Sports

Jonathan Feigen: Guaranteed. RT @blwarren: @Jonathan_Feigen @WojYahooNBA Gotta assume the Dorsey deal is non-guaranteed, right? Twitter @Jonathan_Feigen

Jonathan Feigen: Rockets also in talks with Kostas Papanikolaou. Deal not complete. Waiting for me to be able to correcly spell Papanikolaou without checking Twitter @Jonathan_Feigen

Executives from around the league have been laughing off some of the Rocket flares. The nicest thing being said is that the club is trying to get things stirred up after missing out on Chris Bosh, dealing away Omer Asik and Jeremy Lin and seeing Chandler Parsons sign a free agent offer sheet with Dallas. The matter with Houston and the Celts appears to be similar to last February when the Rockets made a quick call and learned in seconds that there was no deal to be had. Boston Herald

Houston Rockets are ready to initiate negotiations in order to sign Kostas Papanikolaou, however the side of the player is waiting for the official offer of the NBA franshise which is not yet on the table. According to Eurohoops sources close to the situation, in the next few hours a meeting for this matter will take place between the management of the team and agent Marc Cornstein who is representing the Greek player in the States.

"Honestly, I was offended by the whole process," Parsons told Yahoo Sports on Monday in a phone interview. "They publicly said that they were going out looking for a third star when I thought they had one right in front of them. I guess that's just how they viewed me as a player. I don't think I've scratched the surface of where I can be as a player and I think I'm ready for that role. You can't knock them for always trying to get better. [Houston general manager] Daryl Morey is very aggressive, is a genius, a great GM and I have nothing but respect for those guys. And they are looking to make their team better. That's what they were doing. I just thought I could be that guy that could do that." Yahoo! Sports

"Throughout the whole process they pretty much told me they were going to match everything," Parsons said. "I understand it's a business. I understand they had to do what they thought was best for their organization. It definitely caught me off-guard a little bit." Yahoo! Sports
