Rockets Sign William Howard to Two-Way Contract
Posted: December 27, 2019 -- 4:14 p.m. CT
Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey today announced that the team has signed forward William Howard to a two-way contract.
Howard (6'8", 207) was playing for Salt Lake City in the NBA G League and is the eighth GATORADE Call-Up of the season. In 15 games for the Stars, Howard averaged 13.1 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1.7 steals and 2.1 3-pointers made on 43.7% shooting.
Howard does not have elite athleticism; however, his three-point shooting numbers could make him a good fit for the Rockets.

Andy Larsen, Utah Jazz beat writer for the Salt Lake Tribune tweeted this of Howard's skillset and potential fit with the Rockets:
Rockets nab William Howard. He had played well for the Stars... lanky wing who can shoot well from 3, get to the basket some, pass. Defense not as strong, but he has a real chance to play a role for Houston. https://t.co/1y14cT2uTJ— Andy Larsen (@andyblarsen) December 27, 2019
Prior to joining the Stars, Howard was with Utah during training camp and the preseason. He spent the past seven seasons playing professionally in his home country of France.
