rockets take option on luther head contractHouston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey announced today that the team has picked up the option on the contract of guard Luther Head.

Head (6-3, 185, Illinois) has averaged 9.8 points and 2.6 assists in 161 games (37 starts) with Houston. He has also connected on 290-of-715 (.406) career 3-pointers. Named to the T-Mobile NBA All-Rookie Second Team in 2005-06, Head played in the 2006 and 2007 T-Mobile Rookie Challenge during NBA All-Star Weekend. In 2006-07, Head recorded the third best 3-point field goal percentage in a season in Rockets history and ranked tied for fourth in the NBA (.441, 177-401 3FG). His 177 treys were the second most 3-pointers made in a season in franchise history. Head also set Houston's individual record with 37 consecutive games (11/4/06-1/13/07) with at least one 3-pointer made, surpassing Kenny Smith's previous franchise mark of 27 games (2/27/95-4/19/95).

Drafted by Houston in the first round (24th overall) of the 2005 NBA Draft, Head finished with 113 3-pointers made in 2005-06 to lead all NBA rookies in that category.
