Rockets Sign Tyler Bey and Daishen Nix

Posted: August 25, 2021 -- 10:58 a.m.

Wednesday morning, the Houston Rockets announced they have signed free agent forward Tyler Bey and free agent guard Daishen Nix (DAY-shin).

Bey and Nix each signed an Exhibit 10 deal with the Rockets. An Exhibit 10 deal is, essentially, a one-year, non-guaranteed minimum contracts with built-in clauses enabling NBA teams to convert them to two-way contracts so long as the conversion takes place prior to the beginning of the regular season. Otherwise, players on Exhibit 10 deals become non-guaranteed minimum deals. Exhibit 10 deals also feature bonuses of between $5,000 and $50,000 that kick in if the player is waived and they report to the team's G League affiliate for at least 60 days.

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.

Bey (6'7", 216) was the 36th overall pick by Philadelphia in the 2020 NBA Draft before his rights were acquired by Dallas. He appeared in 18 games for the Mavericks as a two-way player last season and was also assigned to the G League. In a total of 13 G League games for Long Island and Salt Lake City, Bey averaged 15.1 points and 9.2 rebounds while shooting 49.3% from the floor.

Over his final two seasons at Colorado from 2018-19 through 2019-20, Bey was one of six Division I players with 50-plus games played to have averaged at least 13.0 points per game, 9.0 rebounds per game, 1.00 steals per game, and 1.00 blocks per game. Bey was named Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year as a junior.

Nix (6'5", 224) was eligible for the 2021 NBA Draft after spending last season with the G League Ignite, where he was teammates with Rockets rookie Jalen Green. The 19-year-old Nix joined Rockets guard Kevin Porter Jr. and Kobi Simmons as the only G League players in 2020-21 to have averaged at least 5.0 rebounds per game and 5.0 assists per game.

A McDonald's All-American, Nix was born in Alaska but moved to Las Vegas at age 13. He originally committed to UCLA before signing with the Ignite.
