Free agent point guard Isaiah Canaan will sign with the Rockets.
With Chris Paul (knee) likely to miss a few more weeks the Rockets are looking for some added depth at point guard. They are familiar with the 26-year-old Canaan who played in 22 games for them back in 2013-2014. He likely won’t have much fantasy value with James Harden playing most of the minutes at PG and Demetrius Jackson as the backup. If Canaan plays well enough he could eventually take the backup role from Jackson, but even then there would be little fantasy relevance outside of deep leagues, especially when CP3 returns.
