Carroll, who agreed to a contract buyout with the Spurs on Monday, is expected to sign a contract with the Rockets once he clears waivers, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

This was expected, as Carroll had been inactive for 15 straight games with the Spurs prior to the All-Star break. Assuming he lands with Houston upon clearing waivers, Carroll should benefit from more consistent run after appearing in just 15 games with San Antonio, during which he averaged 2.2 points and 2.1 rebounds in 9.0 minutes. Carroll will likely operate as a backup power forward for Houston, though he may also get some run as a small-ball center.
