Gerald Green will reportedly have contract guaranteed by Rockets
Gerald Green was absolutely on fire during Thursday’s game between the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets.
Called up off of his couch just a week ago to play for one of the best teams in the Western Conference, Green came out gunning against the reigning NBA champions on Thursday, knocking down eight 3-pointers.
The effort wasn’t enough to offset the absence of James Harden, and the Rockets eventually lost to the Warriors, 124-113.
Still, that apparently won’t stop the team from guaranteeing the rest of Green’s contract. According to ESPN, the team will fully guarantee the rest of Green’s contract for the season.
As expected, Rockets plan to guarantee Gerald Green's contract for the season, league sources tell ESPN. Deadline is Sunday. Rockets will waive guard Bobby Brown, sources said. He could return on 10-day deal.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) January 5, 2018
Green signed a one-year, minimum salary deal to head to Houston. Nice to see the 10-year veteran and get some play for one of the best teams in the league.
No doubt the Rockets are hoping that Green’s hot shooting hand remains.
