The Houston Rockets today announced they have re-signed forward Bruno Caboclo (cuh-BO-clo) in addition to signing a trio of free agents in guard Sterling Brown, guard Mason Jones, and forward Jae’Sean Tate (JAY-shawn). Jones was signed to a two-way contract. Caboclo (6-9, 218) was originally acquired by Houston via trade from Memphis on Feb. 6, 2020 and appeared in eight games for the Rockets over the remainder of the season. The Brazilian native was the 20th overall pick by Toronto in the 2014 NBA Draft and has appeared in 99 career games. In 2018-19, Caboclo averaged career-highs of 8.3 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 1.5 assists for the Grizzlies.

Rockets keeping Bruno Caboclo?

There’s still a clear need at center and power forward, and you could give a strong argument for another point guard. As far as centers go, Bruno Caboclo is still a free agent, but The Athletic understands that the organization is invested in him and would like to have him going forward. But I’d doubt if Houston would be confident with just Caboclo as the sole backup big so there’s some bargain hunting to be had. The real question, now, becomes what does Houston deem more valuable at this point: added depth (a point guard and forward/center) or Gordon?
