Rockets sign Chinese star Zhou Qi to multi-year contract

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN first reported the deal and Redick, 33, confirmed the signing on his Twitter account, writing “Trust the process” – a reference to the 76ers’ rebuilding slogan.Nene Hilario thought he had a deal, he was going to sign a four-year, $15 million contract to come off the bench for the Houston Rockets. ESPN’s Bobby Marks noted it was later changed to three years for $10.9 million because of the “Over 38 Rule”. The Rockets are also in the middle of an unusual situation with Nene Hilario. That would be for the Rockets’ collection of non-guaranteed contracts, plus possibly last season’s second-round pick Chinanu Onuaku, depending on the deal with Iguodala.The meeting between Houston Rockets and free-agent Andre Iguodala is scheduled for this morning, league sources inform ESPN. Both are wings who are considered strong defenders and would immediately bolster the Rockets’ depth at a position in which they have been shorthanded. That set the stage to build a team on the margins that could challenge the Golden State Warriors.Nene, in fact, is back on the free-agent market.Iguodala, the 2015 Finals MVP, would especially offer a defensive option in addition to Trevor Ariza to match up with the Western Conference’s high-scoring small forwards of Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard, Paul George and Andrew Wiggins. The 25-year-old Theis has played in the German league (Basketball Bundesliga) since 2008, though he entered the NBA draft in 2013 and did not get picked. “But the Knicks said at that time they weren’t interested in Anderson, who has been shopped around by the Rockets”.The Detroit Pistons signed rookie guard Luke Kennard. Once the Rockets shifted to having Clint Capela in as a starter, it made Nene even more effective as a reserve. Last season, West averaged 4.6 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 2.2 assists in 12.6 minutes per game.
