Rockets Signing Jeenathan Williams to Camp Contract

The Rockets are signing shooting guard Jeenathan Williams to an Exhibit 10 training camp contract, per Michael Scotto of HoopsHype.Jeenathan Williams

Williams, 24, is 6-foot-5 and was waived by the Trail Blazers last week, before his $1.7 million salary was to become guaranteed.

The Williams agreement was the second such camp deal reportedly reached by the Rockets on Tuesday. As we relayed here, they also intend to sign German guard/forward Joshua Obiesie.

Williams has spent most of his pro career with the Salt Lake City Stars of the G League. In 32 games, he averaged 14.4 points and 4.5 rebounds, earning a call-up to the Blazers on April 1.

Exhibit 10 deals count toward a team’s training camp roster of 20, but not toward the regular season roster unless the player is signed to a standard contract.

Houston now has 17 players under contract.
