Nene (torn left adductor) said he expects to be fully recovered in 6-8 weeks and hopes to re-sign with the Rockets.
Nene made $2.9 million this past season and is the only Rocket’s rotation player not under contract for next season. Nene was very serviceable and efficient this year in his 17.9 minutes per game, backing up Clint Capella. He produced 9.1 points, 4.2 rebounds and 0.8 steals with a 61.7 field goal percentage. He will be 35 at the start of next season his minutes will probably not exceed 20 no matter where he lands.
