Rockets sign Brandan Wright for remainder of season

Wright signed a three year deal with Memphis prior to the 2015-16 season

The team also released guard Bobby Brown in order to make the necessary room for the signing of Wright, who will help bolster the Rockets' frontcourt after securing a buyout agreement with the Memphis Grizzlies.

Johnson, 36, is expected to clear waivers on Monday afternoon and then will be eligible to sign immediately with the Rockets.

The Houston Rockets were content to not pull the trigger on a deal at the league's trade deadline last week.

The Memphis Grizzlies waived veteran forward/center Brandan Wright on Saturday.

In 427 career games, all but 62 as a reserve, Wright has averaged 7.0 points, 3.6 rebounds and almost a block each contest, while averaging 16.2 minutes per game. He has earned $214 million in his career - fourth most among active players behind Dirk Nowitzki, LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony, according to ESPN.

Wright, 30, has played 10 National Basketball Association seasons, serving as a reliable frontcourt presence.

Wright is a 10-year National Basketball Association veteran who has battled injuries the last couple seasons, but his 6-foot-11-inch frame will provide the Rockets with frontcourt depth as they compete with the Golden State Warriors for the top spot in the Western Conference.
