Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey announced today that the team has signed rookie free agent Cameron Oliver.

Oliver (6-8, 239) was an early entry candidate for the 2017 NBA Draft following his sophomore season at Nevada, during which he averaged 16.0 points, 8.7 rebounds and 2.6 blocks. In addition to being named Mountain West Defensive Player of the Year, Oliver was voted All-Conference First Team by media and was a Second Team selection by coaches. He was awarded Mountain West Freshman of the Years honors by media in 2015-16.

In only two seasons with the Wolf Pack, Oliver recorded the third-most blocks in school history. At 6’8”, he ranked 13th in the nation in blocks per game as both a freshman and a sophomore.

This past season, Oliver hit 66 3-pointers on 38.4% shooting, up from 20 3FGM on 32.8% shooting as a freshman. He also more than doubled his assist total from his freshman season in nearly the identical number of minutes played.

Oliver is currently playing for the Rockets in the MGM Resorts NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.
