Rockets to convert Danuel House Jr.’s two-way contract

The former Warriors training camp player is getting a guaranteed contract from their rival.

Danuel House Jr., entered the season with the Golden State Warriors, and he’ll end it with their rivals, the Houston Rockets.

It was reported today that House - who has been playing for the Rockets on a two-way contract - will have his contract guaranteed for the rest of the year. This will make him playoff eligible.

House was signed by the Warriors for training camp, and looked like he had a good chance of grabbing a two-way contract with the defending champs. The Dubs instead opted to use their pair of two-ways on Damion Lee and Marcus Derrickson.

The third-year wing has played big minutes for the Rockets, who didn’t get the contributions they were expecting out of Carmelo Anthony, and traded James Ennis III to help stay under the tax. As such, they’ve relied on House.

And he’s delivered. In 25 games, House is averaging 24.8 minutes, 9.0 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 1.0 assists per game, while shooting 39.0 percent from three-point range.

After a slow start, the Rockets are once again looking like the best non-Warriors team in the West. Which means the Dubs could see a showdown with their training camp teammate when the playoffs roll around.
