Troy Daniels has been traded to the Wolves.
He was lighting it up int he D-League last year and also has a game-winning shot in the NBA playoffs last season, but Daniels isn't quite a lock for minutes once the team is at full strength. However, with Ricky Rubio (ankle) and Kevin Martin (wrist) out, he could get some run. Of course, he's only worth a look in extremely deep leagues. Dec 19 - 2:43 PM

Troy Daniels didn't leave Houston's bench on Tuesday until the Rockets had built an insurmountable 25-point lead in the fourth quarter.

He was on pace for a DNP-CD before the Rockets turned it into a blowout, and it appears that Jason Terry will usurp Daniels' role as a designated sharp-shooter off the bench. He never had appeal in standard fantasy leagues and tonight's inactivity seals his fate in deep leagues.
Oct 29 - 2:18 AM

Troy Daniels attempted 13 shots from beyond the arc on Wednesday, making four of them for 14 points with five rebounds, one assist and one steal in 34 minutes.

He had one of the best scoring seasons in the D-League from deep and he might be in the mix for minutes to start the year. Unless you're really desperate for treys, Daniels is not worth owning in most leagues.
Oct 22 - 9:38 PM

Troy Daniels played 28 minutes and hit 4-of-11 shots (all 3-pointers) for 12 points, three rebounds and two steals on Tuesday.

Harden was out and Daniels looked good, but he's still nothing more than a role player for the Rockets right now.
Oct 15 - 12:38 AM

Troy Daniels scored 12 points on 4-of-8 shooting (including three treys) with four rebounds and two steals in 24 minutes off the bench on Monday.

Daniels is getting a reputation for being one of the better shooters in the league but he'll have an uphill battle for minutes playing behind James Harden, among others. Just keep an eye on him if injuries strike in Houston.
Oct 14 - 1:03 AM

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.
Jun 30 - 9:24 AM

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.
Apr 26 - 1:44 AM

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.
Mar 9 - 11:55 AM

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.
