Rockets to re-sign Von Wafer
Free Agent guard Von Wafter told FOX 26 Sports Tuesday he will re-sign with the Houston Rockets.
Wafer, who played for the Rockets last season, had signed to play with the Greek team Olympiakos.
Wafter said he paid roughly $1.2 million to get out of that contract.”This is great,” Wafer said. “Oh my goodness, I’m so happy, I’m about to start crying.”
The Rockets have Ariza, Battier, McGrady, Budinger, Taylor, at the wingman position....surprising to see them take on another one....if he plays, he'll likely get more time at the 2 though
Oh...and werent the Grizz suppose to sign him like last week?
Oh My Gawd, Yes. You don't know how happy I am, I loved his Mo-Hawk, he brought it all over Houston. With Budinger hurt, Taylor not nearly as good as they thought or at least he's struggling and T-Mac playing low minutes I guess it's a good Sign, but is this also a Sign that Mac is out for good?
I thought he was going to Memphis?? Oh well, I think he now becomes their scorer off the bench of course..
No...He won't be our scorer off the bench, or at least our Primary one. That role still belongs to Mr. Carl Landry, putting up almost 17 a game and 7 boards off the bench. :) He can be the next man off the bench. Man...our second unit is great. Him, Lowry, Budinger, Landry, Andersen.... !
i thought the grizzlies were going to sign him. i'm glad he is in the nba again, he is an exciting player.
Very exciting, Didn't think he'd come back to Rockets after his dispute with Coach during the Playoffs against L.A. Glad to have him back though, he should be resigned by tonight.
