Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey announced today that the team has acquired forward Bruno Caboclo (cuh-BO-clo) from Memphis in exchange for forward Jordan Bell and future draft considerations.
Caboclo (6'9", 218) was originally the 20th overall pick by Toronto in the 2014 NBA Draft. He was with the Rockets during training camp and preseason in 2018 before joining their G League affiliate, Rio Grande Valley.
The Brazilian native signed with the Grizzlies last January and has since appeared 56 games with 19 starts. Over the final nine games of 2018-19, he averaged 14.4 points per game, 7.2 rebounds per game, 2.3 assists per game, 1.4 blocks per game and 2.6 3-pointers made on 47.9% shooting.

Dating back to last season, Caboclo has played in 30 G League games, while averaging 16.0 points per game, 7.1 rebounds per game, 1.4 assists per game, 1.2 steals per game, 3.0 blocks per game and 2.3 3-pointers made on 42.1% shooting.
