Center Daniel Theis has signed a deal with the Houston Rockets. The new contract is worth a reported $36 million over four years. He played for the Boston Celtics in 2021, before being traded to the Chicago Bulls in a three-team deal.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported the news via Twitter on Monday.

Theis hit career highs in points (10), assists (1.8) and minutes per game (25) last season with the Bulls. The former German pro played for eight years in his home country before moving to the NBA. Theis was signed by the Celtics in 2017, not drafted.
Chicago has been busy as the free agency window officially opens, manufacturing a deal for two-time dunk contest champion Zach Lavine. They have also acquired 2020 NBA Champion Alex Caruso from the Los Angeles Lakers. In return, they get pick-pocketed of their backup center, Theis, by the Houston Rockets.
