The Suns officially announced that they have signed Danuel House to a 2-Way contract.
The Phoenix Suns have signed forward Danuel House. https://t.co/ofu8HtM9aJ— Phoenix Suns (@Suns) December 8, 2017
House is a 24 year old 6'7", 220 lb small forward out of Texas A&M where he was named an AP Honorable Mention All-American after spending his first two years at Houston. In his senior year he averaged 15.6 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game.
House was undrafted in the 2016 NBA draft but joined the Washington Wizards 2016 Summer League team and was signed by the Wizards before training camp. He played in one game for the Wizards before being diagnosed with a fracture in his right wrist that sidelined him for six weeks. After returning, he played 10 games on assignment to the NBA Development League with the Delaware 87ers before being waived on March 1, 2017.
At the beginning of the 2017 season he signed up with the Houston Rockets but was cut from the final roster at the conclusion of preseason on October 15. House was then assigned to the Rio Grande Valley Vipers of the NBA G League. With the Vipers, he averaged 17.7 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 2.5 assists per game shooting 46.2% from the field and 36.0% from three.
House's two way deal with Phoenix will be prorated, meaning his NBA days of service will be based on length of season remaining. By my calculations, he should be eligible for up to 30 days of service with the Suns although he will probably spend most of his time with the NAZ Suns.
Here are some G League highlights of House's recent 28 point performance vs the Long Island Nets.
And here he scores 33 points vs the Texas Legends.
The Suns' roster once again stands at 17 players.
