The Houston Rockets offered a two-year deal to forward Bruno Caboclo, per Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston. The second season will be a team option, as the forward from Brazil revealed.

Caboclo, who is 6-foot-9 with a 7-foot-7 wingspan, played only sparingly after being acquired by Houston at the February trade deadline.

“They made an offer. I’ll stay here for this next season. I didn’t sign the papers yet, but hopefully soon. It means they trust me &I feel good about it.”

After being selected No. 20 overall in the 2014 NBA Draft, Caboclo finally got his first extended opportunity in 34 games with Memphis late in the 2018-19 season.

In that stretch, Caboclo averaged 8.3 points and 4.6 rebounds in 23.5 minutes per game, shooting 36.9% on 3-pointers.

Caboclo could be viewed as a valuable back-up option for the Rockets in the forward/center position behind Christian Wood and DeMarcus Cousins.
