Report: Rockets re-sign Troy Williams to a new contract

Troy Williams

The Houston Rockets are slowly filling their open roster spots, as the team announced on Tuesday that they have re-signed Troy Williams, which will give them more depth at the small forward spot.

The 22-year-old Indiana product initially signed a 10-day contract with the team last March and even if he didn’t play for the team during that span, he was still rewarded with a deal for the rest of the campaign following his impressive stint in the D-League, where he even won their Slam Dunk Contest. He then appeared in six games for the Rockets, where he averaged 9.7 points, including 50 percent shooting from the field, to go along with 4.0 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 23.5 minutes per game.

His re-signing will give Mike D’Antoni more options at the wing position, as well as another floor spacer. His outside shooting will also provide Chris Paul and James Harden more room to operate to attack the basket.

The details of the signing were not disclosed but it is believed to be a two-way deal, that will allow Williams to see action in the G-league to further improve his game, and also suit up for the Rockets when needed.
