The Houston Rockets continued a busy offseason Friday, agreeing to a deal with free agent big man Tarik Black.

Houston had already traded for All-Star point guard Chris Paul, who along with MVP finalist James Harden will give the Rockets one of the most talented backcourts in the league. 

In addition, they've previously added P.J. Tucker and brought back Nene as they try to compete with the Golden State Warriors for supremacy in the Western Conference. And that doesn't even take into consideration the possibility they could soon add Carmelo Anthony. Even though trade talks with the Knicks have stalled for the moment, something might get done before the start of the season. 

Black started his career in Houston, but he was waived by the team just 25 games into his first season. Since then, he has spent the past 2 1/2 seasons in Los Angeles bouncing between the Lakers and their G-League team, the Los Angeles D-Fenders (now South Bay Lakers). 

After being waived by the Lakers earlier this summer, Black becomes a nice bargain move for the Rockets. Black is an athletic forward who fills out the roster and provides front-court depth. 

In 67 games with the Lakers last season, including 16 starts, Black averaged 5.7 points and 5.1 rebounds.
