John Lucas III to sign with Rockets, agent says
The 5-foot-11 Lucas, son of former Rocket John Lucas Jr., played with the team under two separate 10-day contracts last season as a rookie.
Agent David Falk said the experience formed a bond between the player and the team.
"We have an agreement in principle with a few nuances to work out, which we will in the next day or two, and then he'll sign," Falk told Houston television station KRIV.
The younger Lucas also played with the Rockets' summer league team.
Lucas went undrafted out of Oklahoma State, where he was selected the Big 12 player of the year in 2004.
