The Rockets intend to keep Troy Daniels.
They are expected to make him a qualifying offer today to officially make him a restricted free agent. Daniels shot the lights out in the D-League with 5.0 triples per game and he hit a game-winning trey in the playoffs vs. the Blazers. He'll have a little more competition for minutes this year.

Troy Daniels hit a game-winning 3-pointer to beat the Blazers 121-116 in overtime on Friday, finishing with nine points, three rebounds, one steal and three 3-pointers.

Chandler Parsons fouled out in overtime and it led to the Rockets going with a tiny unit of Patrick Beverley, Jeremy Lin, James Harden, Dwight Howard and Daniels down the stretch. Daniels got free for a look on the wing to give the Rockets the lead for good. He set a D-league record for treys in a season with 240 and this was just his sixth NBA game. He played 20 minutes tonight and has a good shot to stay in the teens the rest of the way.

Troy Daniels got a start for the Rockets on Wednesday and had a career-high 22 points, five assists and six 3-pointers in a loss to the Pelicans.

Don't feel bad if you've never heard of him, as they signed him in February and called him up from the D-League last week. Patrick Beverley had 14 points and two 3-pointers, Dwight Howard hit just 1-of-5 shots for seven points, four boards and three blocks, Terrence Jones added 17 points and eight rebounds, Donatas Motiejunas had 11 points and 10 boards in 17 minutes, and Jordan Hamilton had 14 points and four 3-pointers in the meaningless loss. The Rockets will face the Blazers in Round 1 of the playoffs.
Apr 16 - 11:03 PM

Troy Daniels will start with Pat Beverley, Omri Casspi, Dwight Howard and Terrence Jones.

With Chandler Parsons and James Harden resting, the Rockets will get some of their bench guys some run. Daniels has been bombing triples all year in the D-League and will have his best chance to have a good game in the NBA tonight.
Apr 16 - 7:34 PM

Troy Daniels will be called up for Wednesday's game vs. the Nuggets.

He's hit a whopping 5.0 triples per game in his 48 games with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers this season. He ranked third in the D-League this season for total points and is obviously lapping the field for his lead with 240 treys on the year. Assuming James Harden does rest, Daniels will play behind Jordan Hamilton and Francisco Garcia on the wing, so he's not a very strong option unless you are really dying for 3-pointers.
Apr 9 - 3:28 PM

The Rockets announced on Sunday that they have re-assigned guard Troy Daniels to the D-League.

He played in two games for the Rockets, totaling six minutes, five points, and a foul. He was a beast in the D-League averaging 23.3 points with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, but those numbers just didn't translate at the NBA level.

Rockets sign G Troy Daniels.

He was with the Rockets during the preseason and is a terrific shooter. In 32 games with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, Daniels averaged 23.3 points in 36.5 minutes per game. He's been particularly hot lately, making a ridiculous 5.4 triples per game over his last 18. Even with the injury to James Harden and the phenomenal shooting, he's not worth owning in almost any league.
Feb 21 - 4:25 PM

The Rockets will waive guard Troy Daniels on Saturday.

They'll have tw more cuts to make after that, as they trim the roster to 15 players.

The Rockets signed Troy Daniels on Thursday.

He is a 6'4" shooting guard out of VCU and has some range. Daniels will head to the D-League after camp and has a long way to go before making his way to the NBA.
