House and the Rockets have agreed to a three-year, $11.1 million contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Amid the flood of bigger-name signings, the Rockets have quietly locked up House, a former Texas A&M standout who previously spent time in Washington and Phoenix. House emerged as a valued role player in 39 games last season, averaging 9.4 points and 3.6 rebounds in 25.1 minutes per contest.
The Rockets extended House a qualifying offer Saturday, Kelly Iko of The Athletic reports.
As expected, House will become a restricted free agent this summer, enabling Houston to match any offer he might receive on the market. The third-year wing averaged 9.4 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.9 triples in 25.1 minutes per contest in 2018-19.
The Rockets are expected to extend House a qualifying offer in the coming days, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Thus far, Houston has held off on the move, but Feigen reports that the offer should come before free agency begins on June 30. Assuming that's the case, House will become a restricted free agency, so the Rockets will have the ability to match any offer he receives on the open market.
House (toe) is expected to play in Wednesday's Game 5 against the Warriors, Marc J. Spears of ESPN.com reports.
House's return after a two-game absence due to a toe injury. Prior to the injury, he'd been averaging 20.0 minutes per game in the playoffs. Given he's healthy enough to play, he'll likely see a similar role Wednesday.
House (toe) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Warriors.
House has been a major piece of the Rockets' bench rotation since mid-March, but a toe injury kept him out of Games 3 and 4. His status is still very much clouded as Game 5 approaches, and the Rockets will wait to see how he progresses throughout the day before making a call on his status. Without House, Houston has leaned more heavily on reserves Austin Rivers and Iman Shumpert, while James Harden, Eric Gordon, Chris Paul and P.J. Tucker continue to play big minutes with the starting unit.
House (toe) has been ruled out of Monday's Game 4 against the Warriors, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.
House will miss his second straight game as he continues to deal with an inflamed toe. It seems as though this will be his last absence, as coach Mike D'Antoni said there's a "good chance" he'll be available next game. More information on his status should come out closer to Game 5 on Wednesday, and he should be considered questionable for that game at this time.
House has a foot injury and was unavailable to play in Game 3 of the Western Conference semifinals against the Warriors on Saturday, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.
The specifics of the injury remain unclear, as coach Mark D'Antoni simply said after the victory that House's foot was "messed up." The 25-year-old should be considered questionable for Game 4 versus the Warriors on Monday.
House produced 13 points (5-7 FG, 3-4 3Pt), six rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block in 22 minutes during Sunday's 149-113 win over the Suns.
House had been listed as probable due to a bruised left knee and was ultimately cleared to take the court. He has posted at least 13 points in three of the last four games and continues to play his role to perfection since signing a deal for the rest of 2018-19 back in mid-March. With the Rockets still fighting for playoff positioning, House should be expected to earn at least 20 minutes (as per usual) during Tuesday's season finale versus the Thunder.
House (knee) is available for Sunday's game against Phoenix.
House was considered probable due to a bruised left knee, so it's unsurprising that he's been cleared to take the court. Sunday's matchup will likely serve as a tune-up game for the postseason for House, who's played a key role off the bench for Houston of late. He's averaging 9.5 points, 3.3 boards and 1.0 assist over his previous 10 contests.
House is probable for Sunday's game against the Suns due to a left knee contusion, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.
House emerged from Friday's win over New York with knee soreness, and it's possible he sits out Sunday. If that's the case, Gerald Green, Iman Shumpert and Kenneth Faried are candidates to see more action.
House totaled 19 points (7-14 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two assists, and one rebound in 29 minutes during Tuesday's 130-105 victory over Sacramento.
House had his highest scoring game in almost two weeks Tuesday, finishing with 19 points including four triples. Prior to this game, he had scored a combined three points in his last two games and so relying on him for consistent production is clearly fraught with danger. He is more of a three-point streaming option but does tend to score in bunches.
House put up 15 points (5-10 FG, 5-9 3Pt) and added four boards in 28 minutes Tuesday in the Rockets' 108-94 loss to the Bucks.
House is locked in from distance at the moment, as he's knocked down multiple triples in all but one of his seven games with the Rockets since having his two-way contract converted into a standard deal earlier this month. He doesn't offer much help in other areas, but the ample three-point production he's supplying makes him an elite streaming option for fantasy managers looking to make up ground in that category.
House had 14 points (5-6 FG, 4-5 3Pt), six rebounds, and one steal in 30 minutes during Sunday's 113-90 win over the Pelicans.
House has reached double figures in seven of his last nine appearances, and he has also drained at least three treys in seven of the last nine as well. The 25-year-old forward is proving to be a very valuable wing player for the Rockets, and he even earned a team-high minute total in this blowout victory.
House generated 14 points (5-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), seven rebounds and two assists across 28 minutes off the bench Sunday in the Rockets' 117-102 win over the Timberwolves.
With the Rockets finally bringing House aboard on a standard contract earlier this month, he's expected to hold a regular role in the rotation moving forward. The second-year third-year swingman has been productive in both of his first two games since returning from the G League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers, averaging topping double figures in scoring in both contests while knocking down six triples in total.
House will come off the bench Sunday against the Timberwolves, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.
House drew the start Friday against the Suns due to the absence of Chris Paul (rest). However, with Paul back in the lineup Sunday, House will come off the pine.
House recorded 18 points (6-11 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, and one steal in 35 minutes during Friday's 108-102 win over the Suns.
House matched career highs in scoring and made threes in this his first appearance since Jan. 14. He has now reached double figures in four consecutive contests, with Chris Paul's absence for rest purposes allowing House to slot into the starting five for this one.
House will enter the starting lineup for Friday's game against Phoenix, Craig Ackerman of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.
With Chris Paul set to get the night off, the Rockets will insert House into the starting lineup. He hasn't seen NBA action since Jan. 14, but put up 14.3 ppg in his previous three starts with the Rockets.
House is expected to sign a standard NBA contract that covers the remainder of the season, Kelly Iko of The Athletic reports.
House rejoined the Rockets in December on a two-way deal, but he's played well enough to earn a standard NBA deal and his play has even warranted an endorsement from James Harden. House hasn't taken the court with Houston since Jan. 14, but he averaged 10.6 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.6 assists in his previous 12 starts at the NBA level and is currently back with the team. The contract could be finalized as soon as Wednesday.
House's teammate, James Harden, said Sunday that he's optimistic the Rockets will soon be able to come to terms with the latter on a standard NBA contract, Hunter Atkins of the Houston Chronicle reports. "They'll figure that out. That's out of my control," Harden said of House's negotiations with the front office. "We know how important Danuel is. We know how good he is, especially for our team, so I'm sure they'll [figure] something out."
House first joined the Rockets in late November on a standard contract before he was subsequently waived and re-signed on a two-way deal. Once the new contract was finalized, House was immediately plugged into the rotation and remained there until mid-January before he was assigned to the G League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers. The demotion wasn't a result of any dissatisfaction with House's performance with the Rockets but rather a measure of preserving his service time since he was nearing the 45-day limit at the NBA level allowed under two-way contracts. While the Rockets could benefit from another athletic, three-point shooting wing like House, it seems Houston is content to assess its options through the buyout market before talking shop with the Texas A&M product on a new contract. He'll thus remain unavailable for Houston's game Monday against the Mavericks, per Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic. House could very well remain in the G League through the All-Star break.
House (contract dispute) played 30 minutes and generated 24 points (8-19 FG, 2-10 3Pt, 6-8 FT), seven assists and four rebounds Friday in the G League Rio Grande Valley Vipers' 128-127 win over the South Bay Lakers.
House appeared in his first game at any level since mid-January after he was unable to successfully negotiate a standard contract with the Rockets. The swingman had been a mainstay in the Houston rotation, but since he was nearing the maximum 45 days at the NBA level allowed for two-way players, the Rockets elected to stash him in the G League to stall his service clock. It's possible that House gets another look at the NBA level in the weeks to come if the Rockets aren't satisfied with the wing options that might be available to them on the buyout market.
