Report: Padgett to sign one-year contract with Rockets
Houston television KRIV reported Saturday that Padgett would sign with the team on Sunday. Details weren't disclosed.
"I have agreed to a one year non-guaranteed contract. It's a tough situation, I know that. But, I think there are some things I can bring to the table that can help the Rockets," he told the station.
A telephone message left by The Associated Press with a Rockets spokesman wasn't immediately returned Saturday.
The 6-foot-9, 240-pound Padgett played with the Utah Jazz for four seasons before signing with the Rockets in 2003 as a backup. He signed with the New Jersey Nets in 2005 but was waived from the club in June.
He averaged 3.4 points per game last season.
