Former No. 1 overall draft pick Anthony Bennett has agreed to a contract with the Houston Rockets, according to Shams Charania of Stadium.
Bennett, 26, was selected first by the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2013. Since then, he has bounced around the NBA and G League, and spent some time overseas.
His deal with the Rockets is reportedly non-guaranteed.
Bennett is a 6-foot-8 forward and native of Toronto. He last played in the NBA during the 2016-17 season, when he averaged 5.0 points in 23 appearances with the Brooklyn Nets.
He spent 19 games with the Raptors the season before that, and was part of the Cavs’ trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves for Kevin Love in 2014.
Bennett averaged a career-high 5.2 points with the Timberwolves after just one season in Cleveland.
He has been traded twice in the G League and played one season (10 games) for Turkish club Fenerbahce.
