Yahoo Sports and the Houston Chronicle report that the Rockets have signed former NBA player Joey Dorsey who spent the past several seasons in Europe, and Bucks free agent Jeff Adrien.

Adrien, in particular, is a steal for the vet min. He played for both Charlotte and Milwaukee, and after arriving with the Bucks, averaged 15.6 points and 11.1 rebounds per 36 minutes, a tremendous rate. (10.9 points and 7.8 boards per game.) He's a tough defender, a monster rebounder, and carries an attitude. 

He and Dorsey are just what the Rockets need, defenders who can defend the interior. The Rockets offseason was still a bust given the losses they suffered in pursuit of a failed run at Bosh and after letting Chandler Parsons go, but for value signing, it's pretty good.
