The Rockets continue to add veteran depth to their roster in order to try to contend next season, this time by agreeing to terns with free agent Ronnie Brewer.

Marc Stein of ESPN.com had the report, and added that it’s a two-year deal that’s only partially guaranteed.

Brewer started 34 of the 46 games he appeared in for the Knicks in the first part of last season, before being sent to Oklahoma City at the trade deadline in exchange for a second round pick in 2014.

He’s proven to be an above average wing defender, but his minutes declined significantly in New York in the months leading up to the deal, and he was only used sparingly during his time in Oklahoma City.

Houston has done a good job of snatching up veteran talent at bargain prices, but it’s worth noting that their roster is extremely crowded at the moment, with 18 players holding at least partially-guaranteed contracts as we inch toward the opening of training camp at the end of September.

    Nice pick-up for the Rockets. Good back-up wing defender for Harden and Parsons.

    If Dwight reverts back to his Orlando playing days the Rockets will have a darn good season. I’m not willing to say they will win it all, but making a deep playoff run would be a win in the first season. Add pieces for the 2014/2015 season to really go for it all and hope like hell Lebron and Wade split up.

    Somebody is getting cut. It’s probably going to be this cat.

    No the roster is set at this 15:

    Dwight/Asik/Camby
    Motiejunas/Jones/Smith
    Parsons/Casspi/Garcia
    Harden/Brewer/Reggie
    Lin/Beverley/Brooks

    Our three rookies Covington, Canaan, and BJ Young will have to be sent down to Rio Grande Valley Vipers with only Canaan fully guaranteed.

    You would see a trade for future draft considerations before someone gets waived.

      Covington is fully guaranteed for the first year, as is Canaan, BJ Young and Beverly are partially guaranteed, plus you owe Honeycut $100,000. Here’s an accurate update:
