Rockets Claim Garrison Mathews off Waivers; waive Anthony Lamb
Posted: October 18, 2021 -- 6:29 p.m.
Monday evening, the Houston Rockets announced they have claimed guard Garrison Mathews off waivers from Boston and converted his contract to a two-way deal.
Mathews (6'5", 215) was eligible for the 2019 NBA Draft after earning Atlantic Sun Conference Player of the Year honors as a senior at Lipscomb. Mathews appeared in a total of 82 games with 24 starts for Washington over the past two seasons while averaging 5.5 points in 16.2 minutes per game. Mathews also hit 95 3-pointers on 38.9% shooting during that span after averaging 3.0 3-pointers made on 39.3% shooting over his final two collegiate seasons.
Per NBA rules for the 2021-22 season, a player under a two-way contract will be permitted to be on the NBA team's active list for no more than 50 games during the regular season, with no limit on practices, workouts or other activities with the NBA team.
In a related move, the Rockets have waived forward Anthony Lamb.
