Rockets to Sign German Wing Joshua Obiesie

The Rockets are signing small forward Joshua Obiesie to an Exhibit 10 training camp contract, per Keith Smith of Spotrac.Josh Obiesie

Obiesie, 23, is a native of Germany and went undrafted when first eligible in 2019. He spent the past season with German club Skyliners Frankfurt after a year with Bayern Munich.

He also was a member of the German national team for the 2019 FIBA World Cup, though never appeared in a game. He averaged 12.1 points, 3.2 rebounds and 3.2 assists with Frankfurt last season.

An Exhibit 10 contract counts toward the camp roster of 20, but not toward the regular-season roster unless the player is signed to a standard deal.

So at the very least, Obiesie should get an opportunity with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, the Rockets’ affiliate in the G League.
