Free agent guard Austin Rivers has re-signed with the Houston Rockets on a two-year deal, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
The deal is for the veteran’s minimum of a little more than $2 million per season, added Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.
“I’m just very excited,” Rivers said, via Mark Berman of Fox 26. “Happy to be on a playoff team.”
Rivers, 26, spent this past season with the Rockets, averaging 8.7 points in 47 appearances. He is the son of Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers and has also spent time with the Washington Wizards, New Orleans Pelicans and Clippers.
“Now that the league is wide open, I just saw an opportunity,” Rivers said. “You can’t really put a price on happiness. The goal was to come back to Houston all along. I think we have the team to beat.”
