The Houston Rockets reportedly worked out free agent Luc Mbah a Moute on March 4.

Mbah a Moute last played in the NBA during the 2018-2019 season.

The 33-year-old only played four games for the Los Angeles Clippers in 2018-2019 due to a knee injury that required surgery last March.

Before that, Mbah a Moute played for the Rockets in 2017-2018, where he averaged 7.5 points and 3.0 rebounds per game in 61 games.

Mbah a Moute is an 11-year veteran in the NBA and has played for six teams: Milwaukee Bucks, Sacramento Kings, Minnesota Timberwolves, Philadelphia 76ers, Clippers and Rockets.

While he was never known as a big offensive threat, Mbah a Moute was better known for his defense.

If he’s 100 percent healthy, Mbah a Moute could help the Rockets on the defensive end, as the Rockets are tied for 22nd this season giving up 114.3 points per game.

Houston has a full roster, so someone would have to be waived if they were to sign Mbah a Moute.
