Nwaba (wrist) has agreed to a three-year, $15 million contract to stay with the Rockets, independent NBA writer Marc Stein reports.

Nwaba underwent surgery on his wrist in March and is out indefinitely, but that didn't stop him from signing a three-year contract with the Rockets. In his first season with Houston, the 28-year-old averaged 9.2 points, 3.9 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 1.0 steals in 22.6 minutes per game. Nwaba, when healthy, will have a significant role as an versatile defender off the bench even with talented players like Kevin Porter and 2021 No. 2 overall pick Jalen Green on the roster.
