Houston Rockets Add to Guard Depth, Sign Austin Rivers

After rumours linking Austin Rivers to the Memphis Grizzlies were shot down by the Grizz, Rivers has finally found a new NBA home.

In an effort to add more guard depth, the Houston Rockets have signed the shooting guard, offering Rivers a guaranteed contract through the rest of the season. The move comes on the heals of the Rockets losing superstar point guard Chris Paul with a hamstring issue. The tentative timetable is for Paul to miss the next 2-3 weeks. Paul, who notoriously butted heads with Rivers in his time with the Los Angeles Clippers reportedly did not object to the Rockets adding Rivers to the roster.

Through 29 games this season as a member of the Washington Wizards, Rivers has averaged 7.2 points per game, a hefty decrease in production from his final year with the Clippers. The Duke University alum was sent to the Phoenix Suns earlier in the month in a package deal along with Kelly Oubre in return for Trevor Ariza.

Rivers averaged 15.1 points per game last season.
