Nene re-signs with Rockets for three years

Los Angeles Clippers' Blake Griffin left shakes hands with De Andre Jordan during the first half of an NBA basketball game against the Sacramento Kings Wednesday

The Houston Rockets have agreed to a multiyear contract with 7-foot-2 Zhou Qi, league sources told ESPN. Houston, however, was not permitted to offer a four-year contract because of the Over 38 rule.

After thinking he was locked up for an extra $4 million and another year, Nene was understandably upset when things broke down. Nene laced it up for the Wizards over the ensuing four-plus seasons until the Rockets signed him to a one-year contract last summer.

Tucker was sold on the Rockets' chance to win, as he said to KRIV-TV in Houston, per Woj: "I'm a victor".

The sides came to an agreement Friday (Saturday, Manila time) shortly before the free agent market opened, ensuring that Nene would remain with a team that just acquired star point guard Chris Paul.

At age 34, Nene averaged 9.1 points and 4.2 rebounds on 62 percent shooting as mid-range-and-in scorer off the bench for the Rockets, who posted the NBA's third-best record last season. They've placed emphasis on defense with Tucker and the offensive ceiling is very high with CP3.
