The Houston Rockets are considering withdrawing, according to the NBA, to sign free agent Tyler Johnson before the NBA plays in Orlando again Jonathan Feigen from The Houston Chronicle.
Johnson played 31 games for the Phoenix Suns this season before being retired in February and is eligible to join a team for the return of the season.
After two solid seasons as a rotation player for the Miami Heat in 2017 and 2018, he averaged just 5.7 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game this season.
If the missiles ultimately want to contract Johnson, they must release a duty roster.
After signing Jeff Rock and DeMarre Carroll earlier this season, the Rockets have a full 15-man squad, with both two-way seats also occupied.
Fig does not name a player whose squad position is in danger, but players like Tyson Chandler, Bruno Caboclo, Isaiah Hartenstein and Thabo Sefolosha are players who only play a limited role and no longer guarantee money after this season.
