Rockets sign Daishen Nix, waive Marcus Foster

The Houston Rockets have signed guard Daishen Nix to a two-way contract.

Also today, the team waived guard Marcus Foster.

Nix (6-5, 224) was eligible for the 2021 NBA Draft and originally signed with Houston on Aug. 25. He spent last season with the G League Ignite, where he was teammates with fellow Rockets rookie Jalen Green. Nix, who turns 20 years old in February, joined Rockets guard Kevin Porter Jr. and Kobi Simmons as the only G League players to have averaged at least 5.0 rebounds and 5.0 assists in 2020-21.
