The Houston Rockets and guard Troy Daniels have agreed to a two-year contract, according to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.

The sharpshooter spent the vast majority of last season in the D-League, but was called up late in the season and included on the Rockets' playoff roster. Memorably, he hit the clinching three-pointer in Game 3 against the Portland Trail Blazers, then scored 17 points and shot 4-for-5 from long range in Game 4.

With the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, Daniels attempted an average of 12.5 three per game and made 40 percent of them.

Daniels is a great guy to have around to space the floor, but Houston's offseason -- in which the team failed to land a star and chose not to match Dallas' offer sheet for Chandler Parsons -- has so far been a disappointment.
