On Thursday, the Houston Rockets signed Terrence Jones and Chris Chiozza to 10-day contracts. Let’s take a look at what these two guys bring to the team.

The Houston Rockets were very busy at the trade deadline. Daryl Morey and company were orchestrating moves left and right to clear up some cap space and improve the team in the process.

The Rockets shipped off the trio of James Ennis, Brandon Knight, and Marquese Chriss. In return, they brought back Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin, both of whom they subsequently shipped off. Additionally, the team brought in Iman Shumpert, who the team kept to bolster their wing depth.

There were lots of rumors that swirled around during the deadline but ultimately, the team decided it wasn’t time to add excessively to the roster and that the best course of action was to duck under the luxury tax mark to avoid the repeater tax.

This, however, didn’t exclude the possibility that the team would stop adding to their roster in order to further power a playoff run. The buyout market was extensively explored but as of the time of this writing, they haven’t signed anyone.

On Thursday, it was finally announced that the Houston Rockets did, indeed, add to their roster. They signed two G-League players to ten-day contracts. They had to sign two people to get to the league minimum of 14 players. Regardless, let’s take a look at what these two men add to the Rockets roster.
