Former Blazer Jeenathan Williams is signing a one-year, non-guaranteed deal with the Rockets, his agent Billy Davis of Family of Athletes Sports Group tells Sideline Sources’ Wenzell Ortiz.

Prior to suiting up for the Trailblazers, Williams played for the Salt Lake City Stars in the NBA G League. He averaged 14.4 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 2.3 assists per game.
