Rockets sign Jeff Green for rest of season

The Houston Rockets signed power forward Jeff Green for the remainder of the season, the team announced Friday.

Green joined the Rockets earlier this month on a 10-day contract and has played in four games for Houston, averaging 9.8 points and 3.5 rebounds in 19.3 minutes off the bench.

He became a free agent in late December when the Utah Jazz waived him from his one-year deal signed in July.

Green has career averages of 13.0 points and 4.4 rebounds per game while playing for nine franchises, including seven over the past five seasons.
