The Rockets are in the process of signing someone who was on the team earlier in the season.

The Houston Rockets are looking like they’ll sign a player to a 10-day contract. Guard Tim Quarterman is the player the team is looking to add.

This news was first reported by Marc Stein of the New York Times and later confirmed by Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.

If you remember, Quarterman was someone who made it to the Training Camp of the Rockets this season but was cut before the year. He was initially signed as trade compensation to use in any major deals, but he wasn’t apart of the one for Chris Paul.

Now, he joins the Rockets who will be looking to rest some players down the stretch of the season. Quarterman can provide some much-needed depth if James Harden or Chris Paul sit.

What Tim Quarterman brings to the Rockets

Quarterman has never really been given a shot in the NBA. In fact, he’s only played 80 total minutes on an NBA court. Most of his professional basketball career has been in the G-League.

In the G-League this season, Tim has played with the Agua Caliente Clippers. He averaged 9 points and 5 assists a night on just 9 shots attempts per game.

Those stats don’t blow you away when you read them, but he is someone the Rockets liked enough to let him be in Training Camp with the team, so he at least somewhat knows the system. At the very least, he can take some minutes off of players.

While he won’t be getting any playoff minutes, he can still be valuable for the Rockets this year.
