The Houston Rockets have reached a contract agreement with veteran shooting guard Thabo Sefolosha, general manager Daryl Morey said.
The move was reported last week by Alykhan Bijani and Kelly Iko of The Athletic, and the Rockets made it official.
Sefolosha took part in a Rockets free agent minicamp with Terrence Jones, Nick Young, Raymond Felton and several others earlier in the week, The Athletic reported.
Sefolosha, 35, is 6-foot-7 and appeared in 50 games with the Utah Jazz last season. He has also spent time with the Atlanta Hawks, Oklahoma City Thunder and Chicago Bulls.
After trading for Russell Westbrook, the Rockets are seeking complementary pieces to help in terms of defense and veteran know-how. Sefolosha fits that description.
The Rockets have 19 players on their camp roster after the addition of Sefolosha.
