Mark Berman: More from agent Mark Bartelstein who confirms @Adrian Wojnarowski report that the Rockets agreed to a 4-year/$10.9 million deal with center Bruno Fernando.Bartelstein tells FOX 26 the 1st year is guaranteed for $2.9 million, adding there are options for the Rockets:”It’s the ultimate win..” pic.twitter.com/yRULznrP5F
Keith Smith: Fun cap process for Bruno Fernando and Houston. Was on a camp deal. That can’t be reworked without waiving. So, Rockets convert to a Two-Way, then sign the new deal from the Two-Way. This keeps Fernando from being exposed to waivers, where he could have been claimed. Good work.
Andrew Lopez: Re: Pels injuries Willie Green said Brandon Ingram had some soreness in a toe. Not sure if he’ll miss preseason games or not. CJ McCollum had ankle soreness but practiced fully today. Said it’s day to day with both.
