Sources: The Houston Rockets and Luc Mbah a Moute have agreed to a one-year, minimum deal. @ChrisBHaynes was first to report an agreement.— Michael Scotto (@MikeAScotto) July 16, 2017
The forward doesn't bring much on the offensive end, with six points per game last year. However, he did up his 3-point shooting to 39.1 percent, above his 32.4 career figure.

The Raptors and Clippers were among the teams interested in adding Mbah a Moute.Back to the Houston Rockets Newsfeed
