The Houston Rockets have waived Danuel House. 

House played 12 minutes in a loss at the Wolves on Monday.

House averaged 8.4 points per game on 39.4 percent shooting in his five games with the Rockets.

The Rockets are likely making the move to create a roster spot.

“I like Danuel a lot,” Mike D’Antoni said. “He’s very athletic. He’s a bigger three (or) four that we can use. He runs the floor, not afraid of the moment. He belongs in the NBA.”
