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 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.”

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.

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.”

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.
