More Rumors in this Storyline
The clock is ticking for Danuel House’s representatives and Houston to come to an agreement on a deal. Houston has no interest in simply converting House’s two-way deal to a standard NBA contract for the rest of the season. I’m told the Rockets have already presented House a multi-year deal, similar to the one offered to rookie Gary Clark, albeit different guarantees. If an agreement isn’t reached, House would be sent back down to the G-League, shifting Houston’s attention to its longstanding wing pursuit.
Mark Berman: Guard/forward @Danuel House says he has signed his 2-way contract with the #Rockets: “It’s cool. It’s fine. I’m still excited to be home of course and still excited to be with the team.”
Jonathan Feigen: Rockets are waiving Danuel House, but could bring him back shortly, source said.
Mark Berman: Guard/forward Danuel House on being waived by the #Rockets: “I’m never going to hang my head. I’m pretty sure (the decision) was in the best interests of the team. I think I will still be a part of this team. I’m never surprised. This has been a journey for me.”
Shams Charania: Sources: The Houston Rockets have waived forward Danuel House.
The back-to-back NBA Champion Golden State Warriors have waived forwards Deyonta Davis, Danuel House Jr. along with guards Kendrick Nunn and Tyler Ulis, the team announced today. Davis who was originally signed on October 11, did not appear in a game for the Warriors. House Jr. played in three games (one start), averaging 3.3 points and 2.0 rebounds in 13.9 minutes per game. Nunn saw action off the bench in three games, averaging 2.3 points in 9.6 minutes per game. Ulis appeared in four games (one start), averaging 3.0 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 10.2 minutes per game.
Shams Charania: The Golden State Warriors are signing forward Danuel House to a one-year deal, league sources tell Yahoo. House played 23 games for the Suns last season.
Danuel House entered the NBA Summer League hoping to make a strong case for a roster spot, and he did just that. The Houston Rockets’ second-year wing made 5 of 11 3-pointers and scored 30 points in Saturday’s 92-87 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers at the Thomas & Mack Center. That raised his scoring average to 16.8 points per game. “I think I have” made a good case, House said. “I’ve been showing improvement. I’m still learning the defensive principles that they also want. So I think I made a pretty huge jump from when I first started to now.”
“I’m a 6-7 two-, three-guard that can also play at the four spot,” House said. “So at 6-7, 230 (pounds), there are not too many guys that can stop you from going downhill.” He hopes he made enough of an impression to stay with Houston. If not, perhaps one of the other 29 teams noticed. “I’m confident that my agent is going to do a great job of putting me in the right situation so that I can prosper,” House said.
Shams Charania: Sources: The Suns plan to sign guard Danuel House of G League’s Rio Grande Valley on a two-way contract.
Mark Berman: From the #Rockets: Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey announced that the team has waived forwards Daniel House, Jr. and Cam Oliver.
Jonathan Feigen: Rockets release Danuel House and Cam Oliver. House was signed Friday to have his G League rights.
Jonathan Feigen: Rockets signed forward Danuel House Jr. He was not in camp with any team so they will have the G League rights to him if he is released.
Washington Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld announced today that the team has signed guard Brandon Jennings. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not released. In addition, the team waived forward Danuel House.
As the Washington Wizards welcome in new backup point guard Brandon Jennings, the team has decided to waive rookie Danuel House Jr. House, a 23-year-old forward, has experienced a turbulent first year. Although the Wizards signed him as an undrafted free agent and his contract became finalized in January, House appeared in just one game because of an injury and NBA D-League assignments.
Adrian Wojnarowski: The Wizards are waiving rookie Danuel House to clear roster spot to sign Brandon Jennings, league sources tell @The Vertical.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Sources: Danuel House, undrafted out of Texas A & M, agrees to a two-year deal with Wizards. House has played well for Wiz in Summer League.
J. Michael Falgoust: Also, Daniel House will be in training camp with Wizards, league sources tell @CSNMA … Got a partial guarantee #WizardsTalk

His Real Madrid days are in the past, but Luka Doncic follows his former team in the ACB and EuroLeague whenever his schedule with the Dallas Mavericks permits. These days he’s in Charlotte taking part in various events of the NBA All-Star Game Weekend, but still reiterated: “I always follow EuroLeague and ACB when I have time”. Asked to pick out four teams for the 2019 EuroLeague Final Four, the 19-year-old Slovenian said: “Real Madrid, Fenerbahce, CSKA and Olympiacos”.
The NBA and FIBA plan to launch a professional basketball league in Africa called the Basketball Africa League featuring 12 teams from the continent. The league is scheduled for launch in January of 2020 and will be the NBA’s first collaboration to run a pro sports league outside of North America, and former President Barack Obama, an avid basketball fan, is expected to have a hands-on role.
“The Basketball Africa League is an important next step in our continued development of the game of basketball in Africa,” NBA commissioner Adam Silver in a statement. “Combined with our other programs on the continent, we are committed to using basketball as an economic engine to create new opportunities in sports, media and technology across Africa.”
The NBA 2K League will have $1.2 million in its prize pool for the 2019 season, up $200,000 from the inaugural season last year. Players will receive a base salary of $33,000 for a six-month commitment, with up to $38,000 for players retained from the 2018 season. Meanwhile, the prize pool will be spread out over four tournaments and the league playoffs, with $120,000 up for grabs in the season-opening “THE TIPOFF” tournament. “THE TURN” and “THE TICKET” tournaments each will have $180,000 available in prize money, while the league playoffs will be worth $720,000.
It appears Lonzo Ball found a place to spend some of his time away from the court in recent weeks. Ball and Lance Stephenson dropped a new song titled ‘Swerve’ heading into the All-Star weekend. And, unlike some of Ball’s recent works, it’s a surprisingly good song. The song is based, more or less, on swerving other girls for the ones both Stephenson and Ball have now. While the beat is nice, Ball’s flow, one of his best attributes as a music artist, is highlighted in this song. Unlike his recent song with manager DMo titled ‘Geturmerch,’ this song is much better with strong verses from Stephenson and Ball both.
