With the Bobcats last season, Jeff Adrien played better than he ever.

They still traded him to the Bucks during the season to get Luke Ridnour and Gary Neal, but Adrien kept at it in Milwaukee. The lowly Bucks added to Adrien’s on-court responsibilities in new ways, and once limited to just hustle plays, he acquitted himself well.

Now, his team prior to Charlotte wants him once again.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports:

Free-agent forward Jeff Adrien has agreed to a one-year, league-minimum deal with the Houston Rockets, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Adrien has one definite NBA skill. Just 17 players received as much playing time and had a higher rebounding percentage than Adrien last season:

If the progress he showed with the Bucks is sustainable, Adrien might carve a role in the Rockets’ rotation. If not, Houston will at least have a useful player when rebounding becomes a priority.

    I’m not even being sarcastic when I type this. This is an underrated pickup for the Rockets. Adrien on a minimum salary is a good catch.
