Shams Charania: The Houston Rockets are waiving guard James Nunnally to create roster space for Kenneth Faried, league sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @WatchStadium.
Albert Nahmad: Kenneth Faried is set to clear waivers at 5:00 pm EST today. If the Rockets want to sign him before tonight’s game, they’ll need to first clear a roster spot. If they can’t find a Carmelo Anthony trade in that span of time, they’ll just terminate James Nunnally’s 10-day contract.
The Rockets will need to trade a player to a team with an open roster spot, or waive a player, before signing Faried. It is possible for Houston to hold off on signing Faried to find a way to create the roster spot, but there’s a need to get him into the team’s depleted frontcourt as soon as Monday night against the 76ers. The cleanest solution to the Rockets clearing a roster spot without a trade is releasing James Nunnally five days early from his 10-day contract. The contract signed on Jan. 16 is set to expire Jan. 25. Nunnally would not need to be waived.
