Joe Johnson to sign with Houston Rockets

Veteran guard Joe Johnson is set to sign with the Houston Rockets after being waived by the Sacramento Kings, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarwoski.

Joe Johnson has committed to signing with Houston once his buyout is complete with Sacramento, league sources tell ESPN.

The buyout was finalized on Sunday. If Johnson clears waivers, he would be eligible to sign with the Rockets immediately.

The Kings landed Johnson in a three-team trade on Thursday. Johnson averaged 7.3 points and 3.3 rebounds for the Jazz this season.
