Von Wafer To Re-Sign With The Rockets

http://www.insidehoops.com/blog/?p=5177

After playing overseas for a while, guard Von Wafer is headed back to Houston.

Mark Berman of Fox 26 Sports Houston reports:

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,

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

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?

No...He won't be our scorer

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.... !

Very exciting, Didn't think

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.
