The Rockets are keeping the band together.
After agreeing to terms with Corey Brewer on a three-year deal, the Rockets re-signed point guard Patrick Beverley to a four-year, $24 million deal on Friday.
The deal is for three years guaranteed at $18 million with the fourth year non-guaranteed.
Beverley tweeted that he’s “glad to be back.”
For the Rockets, it again looks like a good deal, getting Bev for around $6M per and syncing the guaranteed portion of the contract with Brewer’s, perhaps preparing for a free agent class in 2018.
Beverley, when healthy, is a terrific on-ball defender at the point guard spot, something the Rockets sorely lacked in the Warriors series. Keeping Beverley became even more important after the Rockets couldn’t convince Sergio Llull to come over from Spain.
