  • The Rockets agreed to terms with Weber on a two-way contract Monday, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. Regarded as a top-flight defensive point guard, Weber has attracted interest from a number of NBA teams since turning pro in 2015. Weber's poor shooting will likely prevent him from ever emerging as an NBA-caliber starting option, but he'll at least give the Rockets another depth option at point guard with Chris Paul (knee) potentially out for up to a month. Weber is expected to be assigned to the Rockets' G League affiliate, the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, to begin his tenure with the organization.

  • Weber agreed to terms on a partially-guaranteed contract with the Lakers on Tuesday, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports. Weber spent the majority of the 2016-17 campaign backing up starting Hornets point guard Kemba Walker after reserve guard Ramon Sessions went down with a knee injury. In 13 appearances with Charlotte, Weber posted 3.8 points, 1.7 boards and 1.2 assists across 12.2 minutes per game. The exact details of the contract haven't been released, though it seems safe to assume that the deal is largely a training camp invite and could end up with Weber joining the Lakers' G-League affiliate if he can't make the NBA squad.

  • Briante Weber: Waived by Hornets
    By RotoWire Staff

    Weber was waived by the Hornets on Friday, Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer reports. Weber started the 2016-17 campaign as a member of the Warriors, bouncing between the NBA and the D-League before ultimately being let go. After being picked up by the Hornets in late February, Weber saw most of his minutes after reserve point guard Ramon Sessions tore his meniscus. As a result, Weber stepped into a backup role behind starter Kemba Walker. In his 13 appearances with the team, the 6-foot-2 guard posted 3.8 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.2 assists across 12.2 minutes per game.

  • Hornets' Briante Weber: Staying in Charlotte
    By RotoWire Staff

    Weber has agreed to terms on a two-year contract with the Hornets, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports. Weber, who's nearing the end of his second 10-day contract with Charlotte, has provided the Hornets with energy and a defensive boost off the bench, so much so that he's earned an extended look in order for the team to find out what they may have in the 24-year-old. The VCU product operated as Kemba Walker's primary backup the last two games and should hang on to that role until veteran Ramon Sessions (knee) returns.

  • Weber will sign a second 10-day contract with the Hornets on Thursday. Weber has seen action in just one game for the Hornets since joining the team on his first 10-day contract at the end of February, posing two points over two minutes during that contest. Despite being relegated to the bench for the majority of his stay, coach Steven Clifford likes what he's gotten from Weber and will give him one more 10-day deal before deciding whether or not to sign him for the rest of the season. The Hornets continue to be without Ramon Sessions (knee) at point guard, so Weber should slot in as the team's third string point guard behind Kemba Walker and Brian Roberts for the time being.
