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.”

The Clippers, it seems, closely watch every Raptors and Warriors game this season. Even though they are having a terrific season of their own — experiencing the rare joy of expectation-free success in the NBA — the Clippers are rather transparently obsessed with chasing Kawhi Leonard and Kevin Durant in free agency next summer.

But even by these modern standards, the Clippers’ pursuit is still a little revolutionary. Raptors officials have noticed a Clippers employee at roughly 75 percent of the team’s games thus far this season. That has included president of basketball operations Lawrence Frank, which is rare. Presidents and general managers are almost never seen attending a game that doesn’t involve their teams.

Tobias Harris, the centerpiece of the Griffin trade, might be headed to his first All-Star Game and has been so valuable that some executives think they should use one of their max slots on him. The reviews for rookie point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, who the Clippers semi-hid by promising him they’d draft him in the lottery, and he at least partially shut down workouts, have been excellent.

On Saturday Dinwiddie became eligible for a four-year contract extension worth a maximum of $47.5 million. But despite being the poster child for the Nets’ much-hyped player development (he was a finalist for last season’s NBA Most Improved Player Award), Dinwiddie still does not have an extension. “No news. Nothing to report,” Dinwiddie’s agent, Raymond Brothers, said. “Dec. 8, it came, it’s gone. I don’t have an extension,” said Dinwiddie, 25. “Just let Raymond and [Nets general manager] Sean [Marks] talk about it. I already said what I needed to say.”
