McCallum will sign a free-agent contract with the Rockets, Johnathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
McCallum will link up with Houston for summer league action after spending part of this past season with the Hornets. Although he never played over the course of two 10-day contracts with Charlotte, McCallum averaged 17.6 points, 7.0 assists and 5.8 rebounds in the G League, and boasts previous NBA experience having played his first two seasons with the Kings before stints with the Spurs and Grizzlies in 2015-16.
McCallum's second 10-day contract with the Hornets expired Friday, MLive.com's Aaron McMann reports.
The Hornets haven't formally announced whether they'll release McCallum or sign him to a contract for the rest of the season, but it appears they will go with the former route, as the team formally signed Johnny O'Bryant to a 10-day deal Friday, filling their 15th roster spot. McCallum never ended up seeing the floor during his two 10-day stints with the Hornets, as coach Steve Clifford opted to use Kemba Walker and Brian Roberts as his sole point guards. Look for McCallum to report back to the D-League's Grand Rapids Drive.
McCallum signed a second 10-day contract Monday with the
McCallum didn't see the floor over the course of his first 10-day contract, but the team is still willing to keep him around for at least another week and a half. He'll give the team some depth at point guard while Ramon Sessions (knee) remains sidelined for at least another three weeks, but McCallum is clearly third on the depth chart at point guard behind Kemba Walker and Brian Roberts, which means he won't see the floor in most competitive contests.
McCallum is expected to sign a 10-day contract with the Hornets on Saturday, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.
Since waiving Aaron Harrison in the first week of January, the Hornets have had a vacancy on the roster, and they'll look to plug that hole with McCallum for the time being. The 25-year-old has previously spent parts of three seasons with the Kings, Grizzlies and Spurs, but has plied his trade at the D-League level throughout 2016-17 after being waived by the Pistons during training camp. McCallum will likely check in fourth on the depth chart at point guard for the Hornets behind Kemba Walker, Ramon Sessions and Brian Roberts, so it may be difficult for him to crack the rotation so long as he remains under contract with the club.
McCallum was waived by the Pistons on Monday following the acquisition of Beno Udrih off of waivers, Aaron McMann of MLive.com reports.
After Detroit waived Lorenzo Brown over the weekend, it appeared as though McCallum had secured on a spot on the 15-man roster, but that won't be the case after the team was able to pick up veteran Beno Udrih off of waivers Monday. While the Pistons coaching staff spoke highly of McCallum, a Detroit native, Udrih is the more experienced player and should help stabilize the point guard position in the absence of Reggie Jackson (knee). McCallum will now look elsewhere for a more permanent home but may be forced to try his luck in the D-League or overseas.
