The Rockets signed Chiozza to a 10-day contract a few weeks ago but parted ways with the former Florida standout after it expired. Now, Houston will bring on the point guard for the rest of the season, but he will not be playoff-eligible. Chiozza is yet to make his NBA debut.
The Rockets elected not to re-sign Chiozza after his 10-day contract expired Monday, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The initial 10-day deals for both Chiozza and Terrence Jones lapsed, but the Rockets only plan on retaining the latter for now. Chiozza never ended up making his NBA debut during his week-and-a-half-long run with the Rockets and is expected to head back to the G League ranks.
Chiozza was assigned to the G League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers on Tuesday, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.
Chiozza got the opportunity to suit up for the Rockets' outing against the Hawks on Monday after being recalled from the Vipers. He likely would have had a chance to play had the game reached blowout status, but Houston was never able to pull away, so Chiozza didn't log any playing time.
After agreeing to a 10-day deal with Chiozza coming out of the All-Star break, the rookie point guard didn't dress for either of the Rockets' first two games of the second half while instead continuing to play at the G League level. He should get his first chance to suit up with the Rockets in Monday's game against the Hawks, though it's unlikely he makes his debut if the contest is competitive throughout.
Chiozza has been phenomenal for Capital City so far this season, and he'll get a shot with Houston as a result. The rookie guard has yet to see action in the NBA, so he'll have to prove he belongs in order to extend his stay with the Rockets. Chiozza will be assigned to the Rio Grande Vipers for evaluation, per Kelly Iko of The Athletic.
