Rockets waive McDowell-White to make room for Anderson

Shooting guard William McDowell-White went undrafted after a couple seasons overseas.

The Houston Rockets have waived shooting guard guard William McDowell-White to create room on the roster for veteran forward Ryan Anderson, according to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.

McDowell-White was originally signed to an Exhibit 10 contract but reportedly had his deal converted to a two-way contract earlier this month.

McDowell-White is 6-foot-5 and a native of Australia. He went undrafted in June after playing in Australia and Germany.

Anderson, 31, reportedly agreed to a partially guaranteed deal to return to the Rockets.

He has had a rough stretch since being traded from the franchise in 2018, barely contributing with the Phoenix Suns or Miami Heat in the previous two seasons despite a large contract. He was waived by the Heat in July.

Anderson’s last run with the Rockets in 201-18 went fairly well — as the 6-foot-10 stretch four averaged 9.3 points and 5.0 rebounds in 66 games.

The Rockets’ training camp roster currently stands at the league maximum of 20, as relayed by Feigen.
