House, a six-year veteran, signed as a free agent Aug. 17. He averaged a career-high 9.8 points for Phoenix last season.

He has averaged 7.3 points in 378 career games.

A second-round pick of the Miami Heat in 2000, House has played for six teams during his career including Miami, the Los Angeles Clippers, Charlotte, Milwaukee, Sacramento and Phoenix.
