The Rockets intend to waive second-year swingman Troy Williams in order to clear a roster spot, reports Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports (Twitter link). Houston will need that roster opening to officially sign Joe Johnson once he clears waivers later today.

Williams, 23, began his NBA career with the Grizzlies last season before being waived a little over a year ago. The former Hoosier finished the 2016/17 campaign with the Rockets, then signed a new three-year contract with Houston during the offseason. However, only the first year of that deal was fully guaranteed, which made him a candidate to be cut this week when the team needed to open up a spot on its roster.

  The Galaxy S9 could be painfully expensive if these EU price leaks are real A source familiar with the Galaxy S9’s pricing structure for the UK revealed a few days ago that the handset will cost £100 more than the Galaxy S8. The report suggested that the same 100-point increase will be reflected in the US, where the Galaxy S9 will cost $100 more than its predecessor.A new report from Europe seems to corroborate the price increase, claiming that Europeans will have to pay €100 more for the Galaxy S9.Dutch-language site TechTastic, which offered similar details in the past, learned from sources familiar with the matter that the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will cost €899 and €999 in the Netherlands.

The Rockets have reportedly reversed their decision to waive Troy Williams . 3:04pm: The Rockets ’ plans have changed, according to Charania, who reports (via Twitter) that – after both sides had further discussions – the team now intends to hang onto Williams .

Earlier on Tuesday, it was reported that the Rockets would release guard Troy Williams in order to open up a roster spot for Joe Johnson.

In 34 total NBA games, Williams has averaged 5.6 PPG and 2.1 RPG. He’s expected to receive interest as a free agent, per Charania. Assuming Williams goes unclaimed on waivers, Houston would still owe him the rest of his minimum salary for this season, along with about $614K in guaranteed money for 2018/19, according to Basketball Insiders’ data. The Rockets would have the option of spreading that ’18/19 cap charge across three seasons.

The Rockets carried 14 players on their roster through the trade deadline, but then signed Bobby Brown to a rest-of-season deal after the deadline, having made a commitment to bring him back after waiving him last month. That meant that Houston had to cut Brown and one other player in order to sign newly-bought-out veterans Johnson and Brandan Wright. Gerald Green and Chinanu Onuaku were among the other Rockets whose roster spots appeared to be in danger, but they should be safe now that the team has decided to part ways with Williams.
