Pablo Prigioni is drawing interest from Spanish team Barcelona.

Waived by the Rockets on Oct. 25, the 39-year-old will take some time to make his decision, but a return to the NBA is very unlikely.

The Rockets have waived Pablo Prigioni.

Mike D'Antoni said waiving Prigioni was a difficult decision, but he feels Tyler Ennis was a better fit for his system. Prigioni will turn 40 years old this season, so it could be tough for him to find another team to take him.

Pablo Prigioni (shoulder) returned on Friday with 10 points, one assist and two 3-pointers in 19 minutes.

He may not have been 100 percent, but coach Mike D'Antoni wanted to get a look at him. It's still unclear how the Rockets will handle the point guard minutes behind James Harden, but there likely won't be enough to matter for Prigioni to have value.

Pablo Prigioni (left shoulder) is questionable to play in Friday's preseason finale against the Spurs.

If there's any doubt about the health of Prigioni's shoulder, you can bet that he won't be taking the court Friday night. Prigioni will turn 40 years old this season, and is not worth a draft pick in any setting.

Pablo Prigioni (shoulder) will not play on Wednesday and is expected to play on Friday.

With Patrick Beverley (knee) and Prigioni out, James Harden is going to handle most of the point guard minutes. Tyler Ennis should be in the rotation with around 15-20 minutes tonight.

Pablo Prigioni (left shoulder sprain) will not play on Saturday vs. the Grizzlies.

He was doubtful coming in, so this isn't a surprise. Tyler Ennis could see some extended minutes with Patrick Beverley (knee) sidelined, as well.

Pablo Prigioni (shoulder) is doubtful for Saturday's game vs. Memphis.

It's a left shoulder sprain, so he's not going to play in a meaningless game. Regardless, Prigioni will not have any fantasy value as the third-string PG in Houston.
Fri, Oct 14, 2016 12:57:00 PM

Pablo Prigioni was forced out of Wednesday's preseason game vs. the Pelicans with a strained left shoulder, and he will not return.

Prigioni took a hard hit from Alexis Ajinca, and that was enough to end the 39-year-old's evening. Prigioni will have a negligible role behind Patrick Beverley this season, so he's not worth drafting in any format.

Rockets sign G Pablo Prigioni.

It's a two-year deal with a team option on the second year. Prigioni is 39 years old and played in 59 games last year for the Clippers. He won't have much fantasy value.

The Rockets and free agent Pablo Prigioni have reportedly agreed to a two-year deal.

The second year is a team option. Prigioni is 39 years old and he'll fill a minor role backing up Patrick Beverley at point guard, especially since James Harden and Eric Gordon are capable of running the offense. Prigioni, who spent time with the Rockets in 2014-15, finished last season with averages of 2.5 points, 1.9 rebounds and 2.2 assists.

Pablo Prigioni will "probably" retire this summer according to ESPN.

He will be 39 years old in just a few weeks, so this isn't really a surprise. Prigioni averaged just 13.9 minutes in 59 regular season appearances and was never a reliable fantasy option.

Pablo Prigioni shot just 4-of-15 from the field during Wednesday's road loss, but he still posted eight points, nine assists, six rebounds and four steals in 39 minutes of action.

The Clippers rested all of their starters except for Luc Mbah a Moute, so Prigioni was thrust into a massive role against an up-tempo Suns squad. The veteran was uncharacteristically inefficient, shooting poorly while committing a game-high six turnovers, and he'll return to a bit role with the playoffs looming.
