The Houston Rockets figured to have their roster set going into the 2023-24 season — that was until unsettling news broke of Kevin Porter Jr.’s arrest earlier this month. As his fate looms in the distance, the team is now faced with filling his roster spot, either likely by trade or free agency.
However, what if Houston didn’t have to search too far for a serviceable player? What if they could fill the void with a player that is already under a Two-Way or Exhibit 9 contract?
If you’re wondering what an Exhibit 9 contract is, it’s basically an Exhibit 10 contract, but it protects teams in the event that a camp invite were to get injured.
