Shams Charania: The Rockets are waiving forward Bruno Caboclo, sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium.
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.

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?
The Grizzlies are not just dipping a toe in with Caboclo. They are committed to seeing what he can provide at the NBA level. Caboclo received another 10-day contract on Feb. 3 and, when it expired on Feb. 13, the Grizzlies signed him to a multi-year deal. (Caboclo’s deal has an early trigger date for a $300,000 guarantee in July but is otherwise non-guaranteed for 2019-20.) They are invested. “Every opportunity, every experience he gets is a good one for him,” J.B. Bickertsaff said. “It was important to us that we got him on the floor. That was the reason why we signed him. We didn’t sign him as a project, so to speak, we signed him because we were looking for somebody we thought could help contribute. He’s been able to do that. Obviously, you’ve gotta got through some of those bumps and bruises and you’ve gotta get that experience of playing, but if you keep playing in the G League, you never get that experience. So he’s gotta get the opportunity, and he’s taken advantage of it.”
Memphis Grizzlies General Manager Chris Wallace today announced that the Grizzlies signed forward Bruno Caboclo to a second 10-day contract. Caboclo (6-9, 218) has appeared in five games as a reserve and has averaged 6.0 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 1.60 blocks in 23.0 minutes after initially signing a 10-day contract with the Grizzlies on Jan. 24. The 23-year-old set or tied his NBA single-game career highs for points, three-pointers made, free throws made, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks during his first 10-day contract.
Omari Sanfoka II: Grizzlies have signed Bruno Caboclo to a second 10-day deal
Adrian Wojnarowski: The Grizzlies are signing forward Bruno Caboclo to a 10 day contract, league sources tell ESPN. He was playing with Rockets G League team.
Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey announced today that the team has signed free agent forward Bruno Caboclo (cuh-BO-clo). Caboclo (6-9, 218) was originally the 20th overall pick by Toronto in the 2014 NBA Draft. He spent his first three and a half seasons with the Raptors prior to being traded to Sacramento this past February.
Mark Berman: NBA source confirms the #Rockets signed forward Bruno Caboclo (@Bruno Caboclo), 6-9/218, who played in 10 games for the Kings last season. He played in 37 games with Toronto from 2014-18. Like @Nenê, Caboclo is from Brazil.
Chris Haynes: Free agent forward Bruno Caboclo, Houston have reach an agreement, league sources tell ESPN.
Chris Haynes: Sources: Exhibit 10 deal.
Chris Haynes: Sacramento will not tender a qualifying offer to forward Bruno Caboclo, league sources tell ESPN. Both sides agreed to move on. He’s now a free agent.
There are stakes, now. Exercising his fourth-year option isn’t a huge dilemma, but whether or not to offer him a qualifying offer to retain his rights versus letting him become an unrestricted free agent after next season is a little more complex. The Raptors do not need him to be a rotation player yet, but urgency is creeping in. Gale mentioned that even though Caboclo spent most of his rookie season learning from the Raptors at the NBA level, that rarely translated in Mississauga. “You’ve got to be the NBA player,” Gale said. “You can’t be the young D-League guy anymore.”
