Bobby Marks of ESPN reported it’s a $2.1 million contract.
The veteran played for the Milwaukee Bucks, Minnesota Timberwolves, Sacramento Kings and Philadelphia 76ers before he joined the Los Angeles Clippers as a free agent before the 2015-16 campaign. Mbah a Moute largely served as a starting forward for the Clippers, although he averaged just 17 minutes a night in his first season and 22.3 in 2016-17.
He was still not a game-changing scorer at 6.1 points per game last season, but he shot an efficient 50.5 percent from the field and stretched his offensive game beyond the three-point line with a career-best 39.1 percent mark from deep.
His true value came as a versatile defender who can guard various shooting guards, small forward and power forwards. Opponents shot 3.4 percent worse than their normal averages in 2016-17 when Mbah a Moute guarded them, per NBA.com, which made him an attractive role player on the open market.
He will be a valuabe addition for Houston if he provides timely shooting and formidable defense in 2017-18.
