  • Nene re-signs with Houston Rockets on a 4-year $15-million deal

Nene Hilario reportedly will be returning to the Houston Rockets after agreeing to terms Sunday on a three-year, $11 million contract, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Updating a previous item, Nene is back on the free agent market due to a misunderstanding with the new CBA's over-38 rule. For only $3.6 million per year, it's clear that the Rockets' status as a contender is helping them string some cheap contracts together and attract the help they need. Houston was not permitted to offer a four-year contract because of the "over-38 rule" in the collective bargaining agreement that would have extended Nene's deal past his 38th birthday in the fourth season.

He averaged 9.1 points and 4.2 rebounds per game for Houston during the 2016-17 regular season, serving as one of the Rockets' primary bigs off the bench.
