Monday afternoon, the Houston Rockets announced they have signed center Bruno Fernando to a four-year, $11.9 million contract with the 2022-23 season guaranteed.

The Rockets originally acquired Fernando as part of a trade with Boston on February 10, 2022. Bruno appeared in 10 games over the remainder of the season for Houston while averaging 6.9 points and 4.0 rebounds in 9.4 minutes per game. In a combined 30 games for the Rockets and Celtics in 2021-22, Fernando averaged 20.8 points, 13.0 rebounds and 2.6 blocks per 36 minutes played.

Fernando scored in double-figures in four of his 10 games as a Rocket, while recording two double-doubles. Bruno shot 70.7% from the floor for Houston, including 8-of-8 in 23 minutes of play vs. Dallas on March 11.

Fernando was the 34th overall pick by Philadelphia in the 2019 NBA Draft following his sophomore season at the University of Maryland. This summer, he averaged 11.3 points per game and 6.3 rebounds per game while playing for Angola in the 2023 FIBA Basketball World Cup African Qualifiers.
